New Compositeworks paint shed ready for July

22 June 2011• Written by Raphael Montigneaux

Compositeworks, the French yard based in La Ciotat and specialising in refits for many years, has announced the construction of a new paint shed.

To cope with growing demand, in 2009 Compositeworks inaugurated a new area with 16 places for yachts up to 45m combined with a 300 ton travel lift. Now this area will also accommodate a brand new 50m paint shed.

Astutely, details were thought through to make life easier: the travel lift has direct access through the shed; a clean wall system allows direct paint jobs without tent or extractor; a keel pit reduces working heights; solar-powered systems include the air treatment units and there is also a small paint cabin for tenders and parts.

This new facility will be ready for service in July.
