TMS Maritime rules the waves

Sustainability Today is pleased to announce as our Marine Construction Company of the Month, TMS Maritime. Founded in 1991 by Managing Director Peter Stenner and former Director William Hook, Devon based TMS Maritime covers a broad spectrum of marine and civil engineering services throughout the UK and Europe. With extensive knowledge, experience and capabilities, the company boasts an unchallengeable reputation, and unrivalled level of customer satisfaction. Specialising in water construction, including ports and harbours, the company also provides services for pier construction, restoration and maintenance, coastal and river defences and inland waterways.

TMS Maritime operates a fleet of adaptable marine craft that includes modular road transportable systems that can be deployed to almost any national location. The combination of such a flexible fleet and such an experienced work force renders TMS Maritime capable of providing cost efficient solutions at short notice. QHSE and Subsea Operations Director Richard Taffs tells us “We pride ourselves in finding cost effective solutions to difficult challenges. With a full in-house diving capability, as well as extensive experience in piling, scour protection installation, rock armour placement, gabion construction, dredging and underwater construction, we can offer a one stop shop solution to almost any water project. This unique ability has enabled us to forge lasting relationships with key clients such as the Environmental Agency, Network Rail and the Canal and Rivers Trust.”

The company is currently restoring the two celebrated Whitby piers, an exciting project to have undertaken and one that stands as a testimony to the calibre of the projects that TMS Maritime is capable of taking on. TMS Maritime has also recently completed an underwater port refurbishment project in Douglas Ferry port for the Isle of Man government worth £1.3m, is due to start construction of a new £1.7m pier at Toft in the Shetland Islands and has begun construction of a shellfish jetty in Brixham costing £1.9m. The sheer workload that TMS Maritime is capable of juggling without fail is a result of the capability, integrity, service, quality and value that the company ensures remain at the core of its ethos.

TMS Maritime offers a marine plant hire service and includes barges, survey vessels, tugs, work boats, safety boats, diving equipment and Movax piling equipment. The fact that the fleet is owned by TMS Maritime, means that the company can react to a client’s needs with reduced time, and can maintain its plant equipment to the highest standard achievable, as well as adhering to the most up to date Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) specifications. TMS Maritime prides itself on keeping to a rigid environmental policy, wherein the environmental impact of all its equipment used is regularly assessed, waste is minimised and disposed of responsibly, efficient use of resources is promoted, noise emissions are controlled, and risk to the general public and employees is kept at the lowest level possible.

TMS Maritime has grown into one of the UK’s leading marine construction companies and has no plans to slow down. With business booming the plans for the future are crystal clear: to expand and offer its services to more and more clients.
