Renown's latest project sets sail

Renown Group has successfully completed a £35,000 fabrication project for a leading global maritime service provider.

The client specialises in building and maintaining equipment and vessels for offshore oil and gas industries. The traversing fabrication that we completed is a component of a locking/latch mechanism, which will ultimately end up as part of much larger subsea cable-burying equipment on board a ship.

The project was manufactured from S690Q/QL grade steel and required profiling, fabricating, welding, machining, blasting, painting, assembly, and inspection. The fabrication was completed entirely in-house, thanks to our NACE Coating Inspector completing his Level 3 qualification, meaning that the piece could be painted to a supremely high standard. NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) was then carried out by the client on the project, which Renown also offer in-house.

Jack McCusker, Engineering Manager for Renown Engineering has said, ‘It’s been brilliant working on a complex engineering project for such a significant maritime company. To have our fabrication as part of a larger mechanism that will contribute to offshore oil and gas work shows that the piece had to be extremely safe, secure and manufactured to a high standard.

The project required a quick turnaround and needed completing within one month, but with the efforts of all of the divisions across Renown Group, the fabrication was completed on time and to budget.
