Moving Swan Hunter Yard to India


Bharati Shipyard Limited (BSL), on of the leading shipyards in India has acquired all the shipyard machinery and equipment of Swan Hunter (Tyneside) Shipyard Ltd. Through this acquisition BSL acquires fully automated panel lines, quayside traveling gantry cranes up to 180T capacity, 30 overhead traveling cranes up to 60T capacity, plate bending rolls of 2000 ton capacity, bending presses, robotic profiling machines, CNC plasma cutting equipment, etc.

The acquired infrastructure will be used by BSL at its existing yards as well as for its Greenfield projects. BSL has also acquired the 20,000-ton lift capacity floating dock of Swan Hunter Shipyard, which will add a lot of value to its existing operations. This acquisition would help BSL to save cost and lead-time, which would have otherwise been spent in procuring the new machinery and equipment.

Swan Hunter Shipyard is an internationally renowned shipbuilding yard. Swan Hunter was engaged in shipbuilding, ship conversion and construction of offshore structures. It had capacity to build vessels up to 100,000 DWT. During its 130 years of existences, Swan Hunter built over 1,600 ships of various types including more than 400 naval vessels. The dismantling and transport of the yard would take up to a year and the relocated plant was expected to start operations by the end of 2008.
