Hydraulics expertise for Port of Blyth
Industrial and Marine Hydraulics has opened a new facility at the Port of Blyth, UK which is equipped to provide full onsite service and inspection operations.
IMH, which was founded in Teesside in 1983 by engineer Paul Griffiths MBE, has grown to operate in more than 50 countries and supports customers with hydraulic engineering expertise in a wide range of sectors including subsea and offshore renewables.
Companies on the port – which is situated on the coast of Northumberland, North East England – will be able to tap into hydraulic solutions, inspection and service capabilities provided by IMH, including flushing rigs and testing equipment.
IMH engineers will be joined at their new facility by MJR Controls, which provides E&I control systems that complement IMH’s hydraulic solutions as well as Ferschl, a specialist hose supplier who have worked closely with IMH for many years.
IMH has an internationally recognised track record in the marine sector: it has worked on projects such as the design and manufacture of an innovative Linkspan Restraint System, and has undertaken work for Allseas on Pioneering Spirit – the world’s largest pipelay and construction vessel – as well as for a number of other major marine operators.
The company has extensive experience in providing a complete service and system development of jack up vessels, including repairs and modifications. IMH manufactures applications in steering gear, thrusters, watertight doors, ship and port cranes, and ballast systems.
