Mumbles lifeboat station restored

Posted on by in News

nLifeboat1014Newport Galvanizers, part of Wedge Group Galvanizing, has galvanized 240t of steel as part of the refurbishment and restoration of the 115 year old Mumbles RNLI lifeboat station in Swansea.

The project saw the company provide its hot-dip galvanizing treatment to the station’s tipping cradle, static span and slipway, before the renovated station officially reopened.

Due to the station being Grade II Listed, the restoration was commissioned to make use of the existing pier, and also provide a more suitable launch for the RNLI’s bigger Tamar class boat.

Mike Small, Sales Manager at Newport Galvanizers, said: “We were delighted to support the refurbishment of the Mumbles Lifeboat station, an iconic structure in Swansea Bay.

“We’ve worked on a number of lifeboat station refurbishments over the past 10 years in Moelfre, Angle and Tenby.”
