Having successfully developed the marine side of the business, Arklow Marine Services saw a need for good quality engineering skills for land-based industry including construction, petrochemical, food, quarrying, power generation and manufacturing.
Arklow Marine Services offers a plant installation and maintenance service to land-based industry. Our highly skilled staff have been involved in the installation and maintenance of plants used for construction, food, petrochemical, power generation and manufacturing industries.
With our engineering expertise, we can build linkspans, which are large steel structures that act like bridges between large ships and the quay wall.
The inner side of the linkspan is hinged off the quay wall and the outer end is operated with a horizontal buoyancy tank that can be ballasted or pumped underneath to ensure the correct working height for vessels coming alongside it.
A pontoon is a floatation device with enough buoyancy to float itself and another vessel such as a boat, raft, barge or hovercraft. We design and build pontoons in-house from steel to suit each operational requirement.
This part of the business has gone from strength to strength and is now servicing the needs of many local businesses in the Arklow area. Our highly skilled staff are much sought after for maintenance and engineering works by Dublin companies who appreciate our prompt, efficient and competitive service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We have worked on some diverse engineering projects including an overhaul and rebuild of a disperser valve for aerating water at Poulaphouca Dam, and even the fabrication of a sculpture for a major roundabout in Dublin.
