Commercial news from Meercat
Meercat, the specialist workboat builder, has just launched its largest Meercat build to date, the MRV22, a 22 metre multi-role vessel. With its bow-door configuration the craft has landing craft capabilities. The vessel will be officially handed over to its new owners at Seawork.
This is in addition to the successful tender bid for a 15metre multi-role workboat destined for harbour support duties for Guernsey Harbours. The project is valued in the region of £1million and the 15metre multi-role vessel delivered to The Scottish Salmon Company, where it immediately commenced operations in aquaculture support.
Since 2007 Meercat Boats has delivered multi-role steel workboats to European port harbour servicing, Scottish fish farms and UK wind farms. The company has vessels undertaking port and harbour servicing, civil engineering, aquaculture support, rescue and the renewables operating in the UK, Middle East, Europe, Africa, Saudi Arabia and Australia, in addition to other locations. Clients include BAE Systems, Williams Shipping, Associated British Ports, The Scottish Salmon Company, Dawnfresh, Zamil Offshore and Port of Plymouth.
The company was acquired by leading civil engineering specialist, Topbond plc in Spring 2018. Topbond plc had purchased a Meercat vessel in 2016. The acquisition ensured financial stability for the successful workboat builder.
