24 May 2017
Mech-Tool Engineering to design, manufacture and supply world leading fire and blast walls, bringing offshore wind power to 410,000 UK homes
We have successfully delivered a contract for Statoil’s £1.5 billion Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project.
Located 20 miles off the coast of the seaside town of Cromer, Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd was commissioned to design, manufacture and supply its world leading fire and blast walls, which will play a vital role in safely harnessing offshore wind to power more than 410,000 homes in the UK.
Awarded by Suffolk based offshore energy specialists – Sembmarine SLP – the engineering company provided a full turnkey service to supply fire and blast walls with 1350m stressed skin panels.
The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project has been recognised throughout the industry for its safety and quality performance, setting extremely high standards for future offshore wind farm projects. And this is why we are very pleased to have been part of this project.
Due to become operational by the second half of 2017, Dudgeon – one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms – is a joint venture between Norwegian based energy companies Statoil and Statkraft, as well as Masdar, an international investor in renewable energy and sustainable technology.
The contract win adds to Mech-Tool Engineering’s already extensive portfolio supplying world class fire and blast solutions to major renewable projects across the globe.
