SMS Avonmouth relocates and completes largest alongside refit

Ship repairer SMS Avonmouth, part of the Southampton-based SMS Group, has completed a major refit alongside in the UK port of Bristol for Tarmac, and relocated to larger premises to meet localised demand.

SMS specialise in ship repair, marine engineering and major fabrication projects in the commercial marine, defence and superyachts sectors.

The business has completed a major refit onboard the hopper dredger City of Cardiff for Tarmac while simultaneously relocating to a new, larger, footprint to help meet localised demand.

City of Cardiff was built in 1997 and has been maintained to a high standard by Tarmac ever since; the refit was completed in a dedicated, controlled berth alongside in Bristol Port.

SMS took ownership of the site, to include permits-to-work and site security, as well as the program of repair works – at all times adhering to Tarmac’s stringent, professional and proven health and safety policy.
