Naval landing pontoons for the Ministry of Defence (MoD)


The MoD needed to find a trusted supplier to produce 4 naval landing pontoons. The main pontoon fabrications weigh in at a staggering 45 tonnes each, with 1 tonne of paint required to coat the combined length of 65m by 6m. This was a big challenge.


Our capacity and in-house facilities meant that we could meet this challenge from the MoD, delivering within budget and on time. Our large, experienced team were able to apply a wealth of sheet metal experience and knowledge. Each platform is decked out with robust horn cleats, bollards, naval furnishings and walkways.

The MoD requested the pontoons be fabricated to aid the loading of their surface fleet in one of their naval dockyards. We fully assembled the pontoons with anti-slip deck grating, ballast medium, rubber fendering and consumables. This gave the MoD the peace of mind that once delivered, the pontoon was ready for immediate operation.
