Power Generation

Global companies are actively supporting the ongoing operations at existing UK generating sites such as Hunterston B in Scotland where it was engaged to design, manufacture and install a back up cooling water system (BUCS) under contract to Jacobs Engineering.

What we do?

The project comprised manufacturing and construction works both on and off site amnd included the design and build of a 8m high by 16m diameter stainless steel tank along with associated pipiing systems and structural, seismically qualified, pipe bridges. 

What differentiates us? 

 

  • Provision of front-end manufacturing/constructability support from concept through detailed design.
  • Self-delivery model on critical path activities spanning fabrication, machining, coatings, bolt tensioning, flushing /hydro testing and associated load-out activity.
  • Manufacturing facilities situated at natural deep-water ports, close to UKCS growth regions with scale to build multiple modules upwards of 1,000te in controlled environments.
  • Investment in latest automated manufacturing processes to maximise efficiency, including CNC plate and pipe profiling, fully & semi-automated welding, blast, paint as TSA coatings applications.
  • Non-unionised site with local workforce, flexible to meet the demands of accelerated turn-around projects.

How we evolved?

Global Energy Group established its subsea equipment manufacturing capability through a combination of acquisitions (Isleburn, O.I.L. Engineering and the assets of IFAB), Facility Investments (principally Invergordon & Nigg Energy Park) and Skilled Resource training and development programmes spanning trades through technical and leadership.
