IMS to boost berthing capacity five-fold
Toulon-based IMS has announced the addition of 80 more berths, ensuring it will be able to accommodate 100 yachts up to 80m across its two sites. The shipyard will be ready to receive the first yachts on its new IMS 700 site, by the end of 2014.
The project has been made possible after IMS secured a 30-year lease agreement for a 50,000sqm basin.There is also a 60,000sqm standing area on the hard, which equates to five times the surface area owned by the company on its site IMS 300, and four sheds for vessels up to 50m.
The 30 year temporary occupation agreement was signed between the French Navy, the Toulon conurbation committee (TPM) and Nepteam, IMS Shipyard's parent company. Work has already begun on the preparation of the hard standing area by planing down the asphalt. This phase will be followed by preparation of the platform, which will comprise crushing, ground levelling and treatment.
Work will continue throughout the summer and autumn of 2014 with construction of a hauling out place, a floating breakwater and a floating pontoon; the construction of facilities for the in-house team and visiting crewmembers, including a 500sqm Crew Quarter; and refurbishment of the existing sheds.
