Deck equipment supply for offshore wind vessel
Fabrication and engineering specialist Francis Brown Limited has delivered deck equipment to a subsea equipment operator which is working on offshore windfarms in the North Sea.
The company provided Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd (SMD) with specialist fabrications in less than 16 weeks which will form part of a winch system
“Securing repeat business with one of the world’s biggest suppliers of subsea equipment has been a big achievement for Francis Brown,” said Mark Roddy, managing director at Francis Brown.
Francis Brown’s scope was to supply painted fabrications for the winch system for a cable trenching machine, the QTrencher which was delivered to one of its major global clients in April this year.
And this forms part of a series of projects that Francis Brown has recently delivered to the business, including other subsea and deck equipment fabrication packages.
Weighing an impressive 60 tonnes the equipment was built to a strict tolerance and timescale, without compromising on the quality and safety of all those involved.
Mr Roddy said: “Having completed a series of projects recently specialising in the offshore renewable market we’ve established ourselves as a key supplier into this industry.”
“When delivering our fabrication services, we focus on ensuring that we consistently meet – if not exceed - recognised industry safety standards.”
Established in 1903 and based in Teeside UK, Francis Brown Limited offers a full turnkey service including design, fabrication, assembly, inspection and installation.
