Handover completed of Marine Engineering Centre

Curriculum Manager Brady Hogg receives the keys from Tom Rennie, Project Manager with Pinington Construction

Published: Thursday 30 June 2016

Seafarers Awareness Week was brought to a poignant close at Fleetwood Nautical Campus with the official handover of the Marine Engineering Centre (MEC).

The £1.2m build project, which will provide a first-class training and highly realistic working environment for cadets training as officers at sea, has taken just six months to construct by Pinington Construction.

The building was formally handed over to Blackpool and The Fylde College on 24 June. Work can now start on fitting out the centre with advanced equipment that mirrors life on board, ready for the first students in September.

Neil Atkinson, Head of Fleetwood Nautical Campus, said: “A big thank you to everyone involved in making this project a reality and how significant that we were able to take ownership during Seafarers Awareness Week.

“The country is crying out for qualified marine engineers and our cutting-edge MEC represents a strong commitment from B&FC to provide the industry with job-ready and highly-skilled officers.

“It will also help Fleetwood and Lancashire stay at the forefront of the UK and global maritime industry for many years to come.”

The Marine Engineering Centre has been part-funded by a Growth Deal grant via the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership.
