When the Princess Royal christens one of four super RoRo Car Carriers, ATLANTIC SEA for ACL on Thursday, it will be a very special day for Liverpool’s longest established manufacturer R S Clare. Clare’s specialist Surfacing Division has been responsible for the anti-skid surfacing applied to the many ramps between the car decks of these leviathans as well as most of the car carriers built globally.
The Chairman Ian Meadows said “ It’s a great fillip for us that ACL have chosen us to optimise safety and reduce the chance of accidents aboard Atlantic Sea and her three sister ships by specifying Bimagrip”. “And to see ‘Liverpool’ on the stern of all four ships in the CSSC Shanghai shipyard last November made me very proud. Soon the enormous post panamax ships will be arriving at Liverpool2 as well, and that will be visible proof of the renaissance and importance of this global city.”
