Williams Shipping launches new website to spearhead its services to the renewable energy sector, part of the company’s commitment to long-term investment in Pembroke Port.

Supporting Renewables in Pembroke

Leading marine and logistics company Williams Shipping provides key services to the marine energy sector and is a recognised supplier to the Port of Milford Haven at the heart of the UK’s energy supply and development industry.

“We have unparalleled experience in supporting and servicing renewable off-shore industry innovations, including wave, tide and wind energy projects,” says Philip Williams, Managing Director. “Our [Renewables] site gives us the chance to explain to the industry what we can do and how we can help the development of the port as a world class leader in this sector.”

Supporting the local economy

Williams Shipping is committed to continued investment in the Pembroke area to support local industries and contribute to drive the marine economy as the country moves out of recession. The company has been a major presence in Pembroke Port since 2004, providing vessel charter and marine and port services through a modern and versatile fleet of vessels, barges, marine equipment and crawler cranes based at the port, together with onward transportation and logistics services across Wales and around the UK and Irish coast.

“We are committed to extending Williams Shipping services at Pembroke Port,” confirms Philip Williams. “We provide a wide range of marine services to major industries on the Milford Haven Waterway and will continue our programme of continuous improvement for our customers.”

This month the company will announce further expansion of its port services, including both quayside improvements and passenger facilities. A 22m Multicat will be based in the Haven to service the jetties and a newly upgraded 70 tonne Kobelco hydraulic crawler crane will be made permanently available.

Supporting the next generation

As the marine and renewables sectors grow, Williams Shipping is committed to helping young people develop the skills they need for local employment. The company supports the Workboat Apprenticeship Scheme and expects to strengthen its teams as demand grows.

“We look forward to a long and supportive relationship with Pembroke Dock, its people and businesses,” says Philip Williams “and in particular to playing our part in the development of renewables as a sustainable resource for people everywhere.”
