Abrasive Blasting and Painting

Type of work: Industrial Painting


RFA Lyme Bay (L3007) is a Bay class auxiliary landing ship dock (LSD(A)) of the British Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA). Ordered from Swan Hunter in 2000, the ship was launched in 2005. However, cost overruns and delays saw the shipbuilder removed from the project, and the incomplete ship was towed to Govan for finishing by BAE Systems Naval Ships. Lyme Bay entered service in late 2007; the last ship of the class to join the RFA ; the last ship of the class after the Largs Bay, Mounts Bay, and Cardigan Bay to join the RFA. The vessel had an extensive refit at the A&P Yard Falmouth in 2018.

Bell Marine undertook abrasive blasting and painting of the ships internal tanks & hull.
