Engineering firm Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd. said it has been awarded a major fire and blast wall contract by one of the region’s leading engineering and fabrication specialists.
Awarded by Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG), the contract will involve Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd. delivering a full turnkey service, from design and engineering right through to the fabrication of internal and external stainless steel firewalls and louvres which will be deployed on the Galloper Offshore Wind Farm. The company will also supply internal and external doors and windows.
Predicted to generate power to up to 336,000 households, the Galloper Offshore Wind Farm – located off the coast of Suffolk, U.K. – is an extension of the existing Greater Gabbard Wind Farm, currently being developed as its own separate entity.
Heerema Hartlepool is responsible for fabricating the unmanned offshore Galloper substation platform – awarded by Petrofac – where subsea array cables will connect turbine generators to a single Offshore Substation Platform (OSP). The platform has been scheduled to sail away early in 2017.
Having considerable experience in delivering its leading solutions to renewable energy projects including supplying fire and blast walls for the Dudgeon project on behalf of Sembmarine and designing, manufacturing and supplying blast relief panels and walls, firewalls, louvres and doors to the Sheringham Shoal project on behalf of Wood Group, Mech-Tool Engineering has already proven its capabilities on similar projects.
All of Mech-Tool Engineering products are Lloyds/DNV certified fire resistance to A60/H12 & J120 blast up to 7 bar.
