In recent years Carmet, has been heavily involved in the inspection, proactive and reactive maintenance, emergency recovery and repair of channel buoys situated within both the River Mersey and the Irish Sea.
Aids to Navigation
Our fleet of multi-role vessels has the capability of retrieving and deploying both channel buoys and their heavy mooring equipment and have recently worked alongside main contractors as part of Peel Ports’ ongoing maintenance programme.
Carmet has also been involved in the recovery and deployment of survey equipment within the River Mersey and Irish Sea. This equipment usually consists of sea bed frames or wave rider buoys with regular maintenance being undertaken by our multirole vessels to help ensure the apparatus and mooring equipment are working correctly.
Sole towage contractor for the Manchester Ship Canal and partner of choice for some of the UK's most recognisable organisations, we provide a range of marine support services which add real, measurable value to our clients' operations.
