Gravesend Slipways

TMS have started works in Gravesend this week repairing the slipways that were originally constructed during WW2.

Cory’s ship repair slipways were in desperate need of repair in order to remain operational. Following a survey of the condition of the slipway 6 months ago, TMS have begun the process of replacing all the steel elements of the slipway with brand new steel sections that are protected with a high resistance waterproofing paint. Working within the tidal range, our efforts will enable barges exceeding 300 tonnes to be pulled out of the water and repaired.
