Rame Energy, the international energy consultant, engineer and power generator, has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Rame Marine Services (previously Seawind Marine Limited) (‘Rame Marine’), has opened its new waterside marine engineering premises at Turnchapel in Plymouth. Rame Marine is a key component of the Company’s Engineering Services Division, which also supplies bespoke power generation solutions to the industrial, mining and utility sectors.
The 3,000 square foot workshop and associated yard storage space benefits from slipways and deep water berthing at the site, enabling Rame Marine to undertake mechanical servicing and repairs on vessels both afloat and ashore. The workshop provides for the full range of diagnostic and engineering services for all types of marine propulsion systems as well as being a base for a fast response breakdown service catering for engine failures on vessels at sea.
Tim Adams, CEO, commented, “The opening of this new facility at Turnchapel marks a major step forward for Rame Marine and will enable us to produce valuable earnings whilst developing a technical skill base that is highly complementary and relevant to our Engineering Services Division as a whole. Building all areas of our Engineering Services capabilities will be a key area of growth for the Company in the coming months, in tandem with the ongoing construction of our first 15MW of wind projects being built as part of our Large Scale Power Generation Division. The new premises will allow us to pursue our strategy to grow our presence once more in the marine engineering sector having previously operated ship repair facilities in North Devon. From this facility Rame Marine will be approaching a range of new clients including government agencies and we look forward to announcing new contracts in the near future.”
