The Port of Barrow, located in South West Cumbria, is well placed to serve shipping routes to Ireland, mainland Europe, the north Atlantic and beyond. The modern shipbuilding facilities of BAE SYSTEMS Marine Ltd are located within the enclosed docks. Ramsden Dock is able to accommodate vessels up to 230 m in length, 35 m beam and 10 m draught. Further improvements continue to be made to the A590 which links Barrow with the M6 and future planned upgrades will further reduce journey times to and from the motorway. The port has wide experience in handling specialist vessels such as nuclear fuel carriers for BNG and condensate vessels for British Gas. It is used to support oil and gas offshore pipeline and development projects. Barrow is also experienced in handling vessels for BAE SYSTEMS Marine Ltd at the UK's largest shipyard. The port is also well placed to service renewable energy projects in the Eastern Irish Sea.
