ENGIE Fabricom’s Strategic Development Director, Andrew Mitchell was asked to be a guest speaker at the Green Port Event in Hull on Thursday 23rd February 2017.

The event’s aim was to highlight the local impact of the building of the Energy Works Plant in Hull and included an overview of the project and a screening of drone video footage of the site construction so far as well as a timeline of work completion.

Guest speakers from the all of the main stakeholders in the project gave presentations detailing their involvement in the delivery of this flag ship project.

These included:

Smile Foundation – Helen Binnie-Wise and Andy Barber
Green Port Hull – Fred Mead
M+W Group – Ben Purcell, Martin Pidd and Dave Green
Energy Works Hull – Simon Hornby
Spencer Group – Andy Beach
ENGIE Fabricom – Andrew Mitchell
Field Systems Designs Ltd – Bryan Munro
North Sea Ventilation – Dave Young
Siemens Turbines – George Giles
Sutco UK Ltd – Darren Davis

But above all the presentations the talk given by the children representing the Eco Team of Stoneferry Primary School was the highlight of the morning.

The Green Port Hull vision is to establish Hull and the Humber region as a world class centre for renewable energy, creating wealth and employment for the region.

The Green Port Growth Programme is administered by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council. With an investment of over £25.7million, the programme, which is supported by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund, is designed to capitalise on renewables opportunities and to develop indigenous business growth within the renewables sector.  The project is providing continual support to help local businesses recognise and embrace these potential opportunities and we are pleased we are able to support this initiative.

Kye Pearce, Apprentice Welder and A Success!

By | apprenticeships | No Comments

3rd Year Apprentice Welder

Based at our Sotherby Road facility (Middlesbrough) Kye stands out for a number of reasons.

Kye’s physical presence is the first thing you will notice – he is a ‘big lad’, but he certainly is not intimidating. Quiet by nature this young man has found his calling – he is a natural welder.

Unfazed by anything we have asked him to do, he volunteered to work away from home to gain experience at the ‘sharp end’, working on a time bound ‘turnaround’ on a leading Oil and Gas company refinery.

After 2 weeks in this high pressure, delivery based environment, Kye came away with glowing recommendations and a zero weld repair rate, not bad for an apprentice. But it’s not only his performance that makes Kye a success, it’s his attitude, his desire to learn, his willingness to listen and his ambition to be the best he can.

In a recent routine appraisal Kye scored an unprecedented 49/55, going over and above requirements in 9 out of 11 categories and meeting requirements in the remaining 2.

Kye initially attracted interest from us back in 2013 when he was first interviewed for an apprenticeship with the company, what stood out for the interview panel was that Kye had voluntary attended his training school (NETA Stockton) for the past 12 months to learn engineering. The school, located 14 miles from his home address was a daily bus journey starting at 7.30am every morning.  This attitude and an eye to learn and advance, in his now chosen profession of welding is credit to Kye and all the hard work and commitment he has shown.

A great story not only for Kye but for his employer’s ENGIE Fabricom.

Insight into: Renewables Offshore – Substation Electrical Operations

ENGIE Fabricom has maximised international links within the wider ENGIE Group to form strong partnerships with specialist divisions within Europe.  One such relationship is with ENGIE Fabricom Belgium, where specialist teams are engaged to work in partnership to complete multi-technical operations on onshore and offshore facilities.

The specialist skills held by these teams ensure a seamless transition from onshore works through to the final offshore installation of a project.

Work is carried out throughout the UK for various clients, and predominantly involves the full range of works on electrical systems, from design, fabrication and installation, through to commissioning and final handover to the client. Project teams are mobilised at one of ENGIE Fabricom’s locations in the UK or Belgium to ensure full familiarisation and understanding before offshore works commence.

Project specific stages may include:Substation, Electrical, Commissioning and Handover

■ Substation design and manufacture
■ Management of all multi-technical resources
■ Provision of training, onshore support, logistics, PPE and tooling
■ Carrying out punch list items both in Belgium and through to the offshore phase
■ Recording all punch list and commissioning works for handover and traceability

Offshore Wind Turbine Grout Repair Solutions

By | renewables | No Comments

Insight into: Renewables: Offshore Wind

Offshore Wind Turbine Grout Repair Solutions

One of the most important technical challenges being faced by many European offshore wind farm developers first came to light in April 2010, when a design fault in grouting used to secure wind turbines to their monopiles or towers was discovered.

Due to this design fault, the grout injected during the installation of the offshore wind farms started breaking up, which caused the turbines to move on their monopile foundations.

A solution was engineered to remedy the failing structures allowing ENGIE Fabricom to successfully execute 54 Phase 1 wind turbine repairs within a single campaign. This included installation of new jacking frames, bearings, welding, NDT, painting, J-tube inspection and installation of ventilation systems and supply of all constructed components.

The offshore wind installation works completed within the grout repair project involved:

■ Full onshore and offshore setup and demobilisation
■ Confined space working of various trades
■ Development of RAMS/weld procedures/safety procedures
■ Full equipment set up and demobilisation
■ Inspection of J-Tubes and re-jacking if required
■ Installation of H-frame/jacking plates
■ Full offshore welding including NDT
■ Multi-technical installation works
■ Setup and jacking of bearings
■ Painting both within confined space and above air-tight deck to NORSOK standards
■ Punch out and hand over to the client with full documentation
