Marine engineering is the process of fabricating, operating, and maintaining the structures, equipment, systems, and fixtures of marine vessels. It is a broad term that covers both the planning and completion of works onboard ships, boats, yachts, and liners. It also applies to everything from energy generation, power transmission, and propulsion components to access platforms, hatches, and holds.

A good marine engineering company will have significant experience working with seagoing vessels and an appreciation for their unique considerations. They will value collaboration and partner with their clients to define requirements, solve problems, and deliver tailored solutions. They will also be supported by a team of marine engineering consultants who are committed to producing high quality outcomes.

Marine Engineering Services Offered By Halliday Engineering

Ship Building and Ship Repair

Ships are larger marine vessels that are generally designed to operate in open ocean and high sea areas. As they are often exposed to harsh conditions and longer journeys, they need to be hard wearing structures with robust equipment. They also tend to have larger crews and greater cargo capacities, which can create different access and operation considerations.

Halliday Engineering has extensive experience working on ships of varying sizes, providing both on and offshore maintenance and repair services. We are also a leading marine construction company, specialising in the fabrication of pumps, pipework, access structures, and cargo holds. So, whether you need a new fixture built and installed, old equipment reconditioned, or pipework repaired urgently, we can help.

Naval Vessels

Marine vessels play many different roles in naval operations, from equipment and troop transportation to patrolling and active combat. As such, naval vessels vary significantly in design and capability, and their engineering requirements tend to be quite specialised. Work on these vessels needs to be of the highest quality and planned with the vessel’s precise role in mind.

We have a long history of partnering with the Royal Australian Navy to upgrade, maintain, and repair their fleet. We have also worked with several other government clients on both their onshore and offshore infrastructure and assets. As such, we understand the particular challenges these jobs pose and are experts in developing solutions that suit their requirements.

Cruise Liners and Ocean Liners

Liners are larger vessels that are designed to provide comfortable transportation for many passengers, usually along popular tourist routes. Where cruise liners tend to make multiple stops and stay close to coastlines, ocean liners often traverse the open ocean. Cruise liners also tend to feature more passenger-centric amenities, whereas ocean liner designs are more focused on safety and durability.

We have previously worked with many of the cruise industry’s biggest names and appreciate the unique challenges these companies face. For example, we know vessels need to be kept moving, so projects must be carefully planned ahead of time. We also understand the importance of proactive maintenance and repairs, and can advise on the optimum schedule for these works.

Boats, Yachts, Superyachts, and Luxury Yachts

Boats and yachts are generally smaller than other vessel types and are primarily designed for recreation or sport. Some boats have commercial applications, like ferrying and towing, but many are purely built for fun, like most sailing boats. Yachts are also all about pleasure, with many high-end vessels offering bespoke interiors and a wide range of amenities.

We are known worldwide for our ability to design, create, install, and maintain bespoke metal fittings and equipment. Our exacting clientele appreciates our attention to detail and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome on every project. Our fully kitted out mobile workshop and extensive stock of key materials also allow us to rapidly respond to requests.
