Mary Rose Cannon – Portsmouth Historic Docks

Maxim were called in by The Mary Rose Trust at Portsmouth Historic Docks to relocate the cannon and other priceless artifacts from the famous and historic Mary Rose Ship.

Maxim conducted numerous site meetings prior to the works commencing to ensure on the night of the move everything went without incident. For this project, we utilised several specialist items of lifting/handling kit including porta gantry, jacks, skates, and scoots.

With the museum operational during daytime hours, we had a minimal amount of night-time to complete the works before reopening the next day. With the meticulous planning and expert team deployed we completed the works in good time and the centre was opened on time as promised and on the back of this we received a great review as below.
