Ship repair: our core business

We are a full service company

The deepsea shipping business in British Columbia has an extreme diversity in the types of vessels and cargoes handled.  Some of these vessels are:

  • coastal and deepsea tugs and barges

  • breakbulk carriers: forest products, steel, project cargoes

  • ro/ro vessels: breakbulk and automobiles

  • tankers: petroleum products and other liquid cargoes

  • container vessels: four major terminals at Vancouver and Prince Rupert

  • bulk carriers: coal, grain, sulphur, potash, copper concentrates

  • heavy lift vessels: project cargoes and steel

  • cruise ships: bringing over 800,000 passengers per year to Vancouver

All of these types of vessels present different challenges in terms of the range of requirements for regular maintenance and emergency repairs.
