Interior outfitters Trimline have installed Covid-safe catering areas onboard P&O Ferries’ Spirit of Britain while the ship was in dry dock in the Damen Shipyard in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

During the three-week refit project, Trimline’s team of joiners, catering specialists, floor layers and labourers replaced all hot and cold serveries in the Club Lounge and Food Market with self-service and ‘Grab & Go’ areas. To ensure the team’s safety during the pandemic, their temperature was taken twice per shift and face masks were worn throughout.

“The extraordinary comradery of the team kept everyone spirits high during the refit,” said Naomi Cooper, senior project manager for Trimline. “Everyone supported each other to deliver an outstanding project on time and to budget.”

Spirit of Britain is one of P&O Ferries’ two Spirit-class ships, which are the largest ferries constructed for the route across the English Channel. Trimline will carry out another refit on her sister ship, Spirit of France, at the end of February.

“This was Trimline’s first time working with P&O Ferries and we were delighted with the final finish of the project,” said Simon Dawkins, commercial manager of Trimline. “The new catering areas look very impressive and up to date, and we are very much looking forward to starting the next refit later this month.”
