St. Kitts Marine Works Limited is getting ready for the continued development of the twin-island Federation with the launching of a travel-lift said to be the second largest in the Caribbean.

Director Regiwell Francis said ceremony will be held at the site in New Guinea where the mobile crane, designed to lift vessels out of the water and move them to areas on land and vice-versa will be launched.

“This one in St. Kitts makes St. Kitts the holder of the second biggest travel lift in the Caribbean from Bahamas down to Trinidad and Tobago.  Ours is bigger than the one in Puerto Rico. Only Trinidad has bigger lifts,” said Francis.

The dedication ceremony will be held on Friday afternoon at 4:30 and will be graced by the presence of St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas; Minister of Finance, Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris; other government officials and private sector leaders.
