SHIP repair and maintenance firm Dales Marine Services has expanded its operations in Scotland with the lease of a dry dock at the Port of Leith.

The firm, which has its base in Aberdeen, is now operating the Imperial dry dock at Leith on an initial ten-year lease from Forth Ports and is to invest around 250,000 in an upgrade and overhaul, including gate seals, hydraulics, pipework, sluices and pumps.

It says the dock will be available for use by 1 March.

Dales has previously used the dock on an occasional basis.
