Another busy and productive month for Malin Abram! Our engineers have been working solidly through current and future work scopes, planning, and managing the optimum solutions for each of our heavy lift clients. We have received numerous new enquires, with a sharp growth in queries around oil & gas transport – a particular are of expertise for the team. We hope that this will deliver some exciting, new prospective scopes…stay tuned for news on this soon!
Our Hinkley C Project continues to grow with continued engineering expertise offered, as we now advance into new progression stages with the first few moves commencing from our Renfrew based fabrication site. Our team are involved in this iconic project with regards the supply of both engineering and site management; it has been a fantastic scope to be involved in, demonstrating how the individual specialist business units across the group work together to provide a fully turnkey solution – from design to delivery.
Malin Abram also recently performed the stern block site move for the Type 26 project for BAE Systems and the Royal Navy. Our team moved the large stern section of the vessel, to allow building to continue, and involved site visits, engineering, and management of the operation. SPMT’s were selected to block, providing the manoeuvrability required for such a large move. Harnessing our experience and expertise in the area of large and abnormal loads, the block was successfully aligned with the existing section of the vessel, to millimetre accuracy.
Our Sales and Bids Team continue to develop new and exciting client relations resulting in numerous new tenders for Malin Abram and Malin Newbuild and have worked hard to respond to these, resulting in a range of new contracts. With spring around the corner, the Oil & Gas and Renewables market seasons will be getting busier and we look forward to assisting clients based in this specialist area. Our client relationships continue to strengthen as we are regularly approached for additional services, while either tendering for or during the delivery of a project. This is a great endorsement of our capabilities and expertise.
