Coldharbour Marine opens new UK Headquarters 

 

Coldharbour Marine, long recognised for the design, manufacture and supply of inert gas and fluid handling equipment particularly used to blanket cargoes in tankers, LNG and LPG carriers and floating production, storage and off-loading vessels (FPSOs) has moved into a new 25k sq ft  headquarters in Linby, Nottinghamshire.  Previously spread over 3 sites, this means that Coldharbour’s administrative headquarters, design office, research and development facility, laboratory, factory acceptance test (FAT) rig, stores and warehousing together with a high-tech factory and assembly shop will all be under one roof. The £1.5m investment was supported by UK Government agency, the N2D2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

 

Coldharbour Marine is in the final stages of gaining accreditation for a patent protected , inert gas driven, in-tank, ballast water treatment system (BWMS)

whose IMO system certification is under the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency supervised by Lloyds Register. The projected international demand for this equipment underpins the company’s ambitious recruitment plans.  According to Coldharbour Marine’s Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Marshall, “The move to larger premises is part of a planned expansion of our inert gas business and will ensure that Coldharbour is able to satisfy ship owners and operators demand for its products. We anticipate the imminent introduction of the International Marine Organisations’ ballast water management convention.”

 

 

Following his visit, local MP Mark Spencer said, “I am most impressed by this, manufacturing facility and very excited to hear about the high level engineering jobs it will bring. Coldharbour Marine is exactly the type of business we want to see growing in Nottinghamshire. Its products are high-tech, serve international export markets and will make a significant contribution to the environmental sustainability of the world-wide shipping industry.”

 

Over the next 12 months, Coldharbour Marine expects to recruit 100 additional full time staff including marine engineers and designers, project managers and mechanical engineers. . More information about the company and job vacancies is available at http://www.coldharbourmarine.com
