Ports & Commercial Shipping

A wealth of maritime skills at your disposal

From lightships and dredgers to ro-ro and car ferries, barges, tugs, tankers and offshore support vessels, Humber Marine and Renewables members offer an extensive breadth of experience in the chartering, operation, design, construction, repair and maintenance of commercial shipping.

Innovation, skill and competitiveness underpin our members, who have an established track record in the marine & maritime sector, and are staffed with experts in every field, including marine pilots, tug masters, marine engineers, naval architects and shipyard draughtspeople.

Vessel conversions also form a key service, including hull extensions, change of use and upgrades. Increasingly, conversions involve energy efficient retrofitting.
