A MARINE refitters has had its busiest season in its history after completing work on more than 20 vessels in five months.

Burgess Marine, which has offices and workshops in Portsmouth, has supported companies such as BAE Systems and CT Offshore, as well as for new and existing customers for the technical side of the business in Portchester, London, Gibraltar, France, Saudi Arabia and Korea.

Nick Jalie, Burgess Marine general manager, said: ‘It’s been a tremendous season, and a huge tireless effort for all involved.

‘In support of BAE we’ve docked three High Speed Craft for Condor Ferries, plus the scheduled dockings of the Wightlink and Red Funnel fleets.

‘We’ve also docked the MV Sander for CT Offshore at Trafalgar Wharf.’
