We were asked to design, manufacture and install a supporting steel structure to which stainless steel wires could be attached to accept a protective PVC canopy to protect the ‘Royal Barge’ which forms part of the Britannia Tour.
The Royal Barge is in full working order and kept afloat in a special pond at the bottom of the gangway of the Former Royal Yacht Britannia. The Barge was transported to London in 2012 and led the pagent on the River Thames to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth.
The fabrication work was completed in our Shore workshops and was hot dipped galvanised before installation. To prevent any disruption to the daily tours of Britannia (over 300,000 per year) , all installation work was completed before 10am each day.
We carry out an assortment of work for the FRY Britannia and she remains one of the best attractions in the UK.
