In October 2020, CFL opened the Falkland Islands’ only marine engineering workshop to provide a highly skilled service for the local community.
With limited workshop facilities to locally prepare, mend and fabricate spare parts and materials, we decided to create a facility which would not only provide those services to the local community, but also provide a facility for developing those specialist skills within the Falkland Islands.
The workshop is now open for business for engineering works, repairs, and material purchase. Fully equipped with specialist equipment, it includes:
- a metal lathe
- milling machine
- ultrasonic cleaning tank
- hydraulic repair tools
We are currently developing an apprenticeship programme with the aim to provide a young person with a pathway to qualified marine or general engineering.
