Pyeroy Secures RFA Lyme Bay Painting Contract

Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Pyeroy Limited
: 16 March, 2007  (Application Story)
A Tyneside firm has won a contract to work on the unfinished Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessel that was transferred from the Swan Hunter shipyard on the Tyne last year
The Marine Division of the Gateshead-based Pyeroy Group has been awarded the painting contract for the RFA Lyme Bay as part of the completion works now being undertaken by BAE Systems at its shipyard in Govan, Glasgow.

Pyeroy's contract is worth several million pounds and also includes the provision of scaffolding and containment systems and industrial cleaning services.

The protective coatings work will involve the preparation and coating of topside and superstructure surfaces; blasting and coating external weather decks and the refurbishment of all internal compartments. The contract includes the application of specialist coatings on the flight deck areas.

The painting work is expected to continue until this summer, when the RFA Lyme Bay is scheduled to be ready for final inspection before leaving the Clyde.

Pyeroy has long standing links with major ship repair, shipbuilding and the Royal Naval Dockyards. The company has offices in Rosyth, Belfast, Govan and Birkenhead to manage its commercial and Royal Navy contracts.

Recently the company also won the contract for painting and protective coatings work required by Babcock Engineering Services as part of the refit of HMS Liverpool, a Type 42 destroyer, in the Rosyth Royal Dockyard.

Hugh Pelham, managing director of Pyeroy, said: 'These are highly prestigious contracts and have been won against stiff competition.

'Over the years, we have become recognised leaders in providing high specification protective coatings for MOD warships.

We had not previously worked on the RFA Lyme Bay and won the contract after it was put out to tender following its transfer to the Clyde.

'We expect to have a team of 120 working on the vessel over the next five or six months.'
