Pendennis gets approval for expansion

Pendennis Shipyard has announced that it has received approval from Cornwall Council in the UK for its marine-based development plans. The plans focused on improvements to the shoreline at their facility within Falmouth docks, and included the creation of two wet docks and a wet basin to hold back the tide alongside the north-facing area of the yard.

This redevelopment approval provides the opportunity to dramatically increase Pendennis’ capacity as well as allowing the company to build and refit larger vessels. These initiatives are the first stage of a wider ‘Port of Falmouth Masterplan’, and have been welcomed as a vital boost for Falmouth, especially as they have the potential to create up to 60 new jobs at the yard. Toby Allies, Sales & Director at Pendennis, commented “We are pleased to be involved in the Port of Falmouth Development Proposal and would like to thank all of our private and public sector supporters within the region.”

The scheme is supported by local MP Sarah Newton who said “I am delighted that Pendennis has been granted permission to go ahead with their impressive plans for the further development of the company. Pendennis is a well respected business in the South West and internationally, with a highly skilled workforce and a world class product. Their investment in training and facilities has been a valuable asset to the local community for the past 25 years. Expansion of this nature is a fantastic step forward not only for Pendennis but also in supporting and strengthening the local economy.”
