By | apprenticeships, Corporate News, Exhibitions/Seminars, News | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom recently attended the annual North East Lincolnshire Skills Fair, held at Grimsby Auditorium. The Skills Fair is the largest skills and careers event in North East Lincolnshire and aims to inspire young people to make decisions regarding their future career and the skills they will need.

Approximately 1,600 year 10 students attended the event over the course of the day, visiting from 14 local academies/learning centres.

ENGIE Fabricom was situated in the dedicated STEM village alongside other local engineering companies like Orsted, BAE Systems and British Steel.  Graduate Engineers, Ellis Jacklin and Rebecca Procter and Year 3 Apprentices Adam Whall and Jake Brand were on hand to give the students tips and advice on career paths into engineering.

The theme of this years’ Skills Fair was ‘Have a Go’ and exhibitors were encouraged to make their displays interactive.

ENGIE Fabricom held a competition where students competed against each other to see who could dress themselves in overalls, welding gloves and a welding mask the fastest.  The winner was rewarded with a box of chocolates.

Nippon Gohsei temporary flare installation

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

Nippon Gohsei (NGUK) contacted ENGIE Fabricom in September 2017 to investigate the possibility of installing a temporary flare at their site within the Saltend Chemical Park, Hull.

The off gas from the NGUK plant is normally vented through the neighbouring INOES plant’s flare but due to a period of essential maintenance this would not be available in June/July 2018 for a period of approx. 12+ days, this coupled with the shutdown and start up time would have equated to a 22+ days lost production.

The project was implemented in 3 stages, a feasibility study was carried out to identify the issues, design requirements and provide a +/-25% total installed cost estimate. The next stage was to carry out the detailed design and issue a proposal for the fabrication and installation. The final stage included procurement, fabrication, installation and commissioning.

The temporary flare system was successfully installed and commissioned for the target date of the 22nd June 2018, this is currently in operation and is due to run until the 14th July 2018. The NGUK off gas will be diverted back to the INEOS flare on completion of the maintenance and the pipework, flare and ancillary items will be removed.

This project has involved all departments of the business and has demonstrated to both NGUK and INEOS our full end to end engineering capability and our ability to deliver a project in a tight timescale.

We received the following feedback from Jon Ross, NGUK Deputy Engineering Manager:

I want to pass on my personal thanks, along with those from Nippon Gohsei for the way in which ENGIE Fabricom has managed and delivered the design and construction phases of the temporary flare project.

This project would not have been a success without ENGIE Fabricom, Nippon and INEOS working closely to achieve the work scope with the timescales that we had, much of this is a result of the way in which ENGIE Fabricom approached the project as if they were part of the internal teams here.  Right from the start of the project with the feasibility study, through the detailed design phase, chairing the HAZOP and into construction and commissioning ENGIE Fabricom always offered up solutions to problems rather than coming back with questions.  

From Nippon’s point of view, we just need to get through the remaining two weeks of operation of the temporary flare and have a successful demolition phase and this project will have achieved everything that it set out to do.”

 Mark Wingate, ENGIE Fabricom’s EPC / EPCm Director commented:

“I would like to express the Company’s appreciation to all those involved in this project and their contribution in delivering a successful outcome.

The project, at various stages, has involved our engineering, procurement, manufacturing and construction teams demonstrating to the client our capability to deliver these attributes across the project lifecycle to demanding deadlines.

Following the completion of the project, Richard Webster, ENGIE Fabricom’s CEO for the UK and myself have met with the NGUK site directors, they also expressed their appreciation regarding the execution and collaborative approach adopted by both parties and would look forward to similar opportunities in the future.

Once again many thanks for all your efforts in achieving this success.”
