Following the reverse engineering of PACSCAT, a project undertaken by Ramco in 2014, a new home for the landing craft’s water jets has finally been found. The sale of these very large and quite specialist bits of marine equipment was expected to take time and despite receiving several low offers, Ramco decided to wait for the right price. Tenacity finally paid off... “being able to correctly store these expensive bits of kit and wait for the right buyer has ultimately led to MoD receiving a far higher return than if we had sold them quickly to a trader” commented Adrian Foreman, Ramco’s Marine & Logistics Manager. The water jets are now back in use in Scandinavia.
Over the years Ramco has undertaken several major disposal projects on behalf of MoD. For the PACSCAT case study please go to www.ramcodisposals.co.uk
