Dales move to Leith for dry dock upgrade

DALES Marine Services, an Aberdeen-based ship repair and maintenance outfit, has expanded its operations on the east coast by leasing a dry dock at the Port of Leith and a workshop at Montrose.

The company is leasing the Imperial dry dock in Leith from Forth Ports in a ten-year deal and is to invest about 250,000 in an upgrade and overhaul.

Dales will use the dock to service safety or supply vessels from the oil and gas industry, and larger fishing boats.
