Site applied coatings

We hold Radar Absorbent Sheeting (RASH), Radar Absorbent Material (RAM) and Radar Absorbent Paint (RAP) applicator approvals and have a fully accredited and security-cleared workforce capable of completing projects in challenging conditions. Our teams have delivered painting works in England, Scotland, the Falklands, Malta and Saudi Arabia. Testimonials received from BAE Systems, Babcock Marine and Royal Navy personnel bear witness to our flexibility and determination to achieve the most demanding programmes. Jack Tighe Ltd is an active member of the Marine Paint Forum; this gives us access to the latest innovations in the sector and allows us to share best practice from our projects.

We have had a continuous presence at HMNB Portsmouth since 2002; our current five year contract runs to 2021, and includes HMS Queen Elizabeth, HMS Daring, HMS Westminster, offices, stores and dock infrastructure. We have also carried out maintenance painting to commercial ferries used between the mainland and the Isle of Wight and have completed a five boat Offshore Patrol Vessel package at BAE Govan and Scotstoun.

Completed contracts in this sector include:

  • HMS Warrior
  • HMS Clyde
  • Ben Ainsley Racing facility
  • Three ferry terminals in the Hebrides
  • MY Shemara and MY Alicia superyachts

Shop applied coatings

Protective coatings do not always need to be applied on site or in a dry dock. We clean and paint elements such as pipelines, shipping fenders and brows within our factories. Examples of work include:

  • Lock gates for the Canal River Trust
  • Various projects linked to the Renewable Fuel Terminal in the Humber Estuary
  • Guidance masts for Portsmouth Harbour to facilitate docking of HMS Queen Elizabeth
  • Steel for the Dover Western Dock for Qualter Hall
  • The Fort Augustus project for ECS Engineering
  • BAE Systems Submarine Academy for Commercial Systems International
