Another successful year for ENGIE Fabricom UK

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

Engineering and construction company ENGIE Fabricom UK has achieved continued growth in 2018 under the leadership of a new CEO.

Richard Webster was appointed to the role in January and has forged ahead with the Company’s ongoing commitment to the decarbonisation of energy.

This has seen further expansion into its activities in the offshore wind and energy from waste sectors.

Prior to 2012, ENGIE Fabricom UK focused on large modular Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and construction work for the oil and gas sector.

It has since adopted a new strategy, targeting plant expansions and upgrades in niche sectors such as utilities, energy from waste, and renewables.

For example, in 2016, it was awarded a significant order from a major offshore wind operator to carry our remediation work on turbines off the coast of Suffolk.

Richard said: “As a Company, we have nearly 45 years’ consultancy, engineering, management and construction expertise across a variety of sectors.

“It’s our aim to bring this experience to the renewables industry where our reputation for providing innovative solutions without compromising on quality and safety is of great value.

“This year, we have launched a new website and design to more fully demonstrate our capabilities to clients and share news of the excellent work being carried out by the ENGIE Fabricom UK team.”

Successes over the last 12 months have included the expansion of ENGIE Fabricom UK’s Stokesley project offices, manufacturing and construction facilities along with their renewables office, with new recruits bolstering the engineering and design team to office capacity.

The business also operates from sites in Grimsby, Immingham, Lowestoft and Middlesbrough and its manufacturing and construction sites in Lincolnshire are currently busy with work on a number of significant projects.

As a reflection of its diversification into new markets, ENGIE Fabricom UK also attended the Renewables UK exhibition in Manchester and the Offshore Wind Conference in Hamburg as well as a number of skills fairs.

Richard said: “Our success is largely down to the professionalism and capabilities of our team so we have not only made new recruits throughout the business this year, but also invested in continued training and development for our employees.

“For example, four of our team have achieved prestigious Chartered Management Institute awards and we have gained the new ISO 45001 occupational health and safety standard at our first attempt.

“Furthermore, we have received recognition for our health and safety practices onsite at many of our projects alongside other positive feedback for the work we have done.

“This month also saw the roll out of Project Graphene which is a program to simplify and strengthen our management structure, bring the business together as one team and instill a positive and proactive culture.  The vision is to become a more customer focused organisation with our greatest asset; our people at the heart of everything we do and a collective goal of reaching a profitable turnover of £150m by 2022.”

“Our order book for 2019 is already looking very healthy and we are looking forward to another positive year ahead.”

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom UK spent yesterday working alongside British Steel engaging with local communities by providing transport and a driver (Steven Rich from ENGIE Fabricom, pictured above) to help deliver hundreds of kilos of food to foodbanks in Scunthorpe.

Joe Hodgson, Regional Site Services Manager from ENGIE Fabricom commented: “This was a fantastic opportunity for ENGIE Fabricom, not only are we helping support families in the local community we are also building stronger relationships with our client, British Steel.

“It was great to be involved and to be able to give our time to allow local families to enjoy this time of year.  British Steel collected a total 768.7kg of food, which will feed approximately 50 families.  At this time of year this effort goes a long way for the area.”

ENGIE Fabricom UK Limited would like to clarify the following:

 

On 12th November 2018 it sold its interest in Fabricom Offshore Services Limited to 55 Degrees Holding Limited.

 

Fabricom Offshore Services Limited’s principal activity is the provision of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services to the oil and gas industries.

 

This sale has no impact on our Offshore Renewable activities in the UK, Belgium or the Netherlands, which, to the contrary, will be further developed in the coming years, in line with the strategy of the ENGIE Group.

 

In addition, we note press articles suggesting that Norther and Hohe See offshore substations were constructed by ENGIE Fabricom UK Limited.  These substations were constructed by Fabricom SA/NV in Belgium which remains part of the ENGIE Group.

Oxygen Pipeline Replacement for BOC

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

The regional site services team based at BOC Scunthorpe have recently completed an offsite project for BOC in Rotherham.

 

ENGIE Fabricom was asked to remove an existing branch section from an oxygen pipeline and replace it with a new pulled bend.  The pipeline, which runs under an operational rail bridge and over the River Don presented significant access difficulties.  The project had a tight timescale but was completed on time to allow the site to re-start.

 

Richard Allison, BOC’s Pipeline, Facilities and Stores Manager commented:

‘”Having worked with ENGIE Fabricom for many years on preventative maintenance tasks, I had no hesitation in approaching them to carry out this project, removing a ‘tee’ section of pipeline and replacing it with a swept bend.  The task of removing the 12” pipeline was complex as it was suspended over a canal and beneath an operational train / tram track (see photos below).

 The level of detail in the pre-phase modelling and stress calculations coupled with the experience and knowledge of the whole team made the project run smoothly, even when the project scope expanded to incorporate more work mid project.  The proactive nature of the whole onsite and back room team ensured the project was completed safety and within the tight time constraints, which the customer production outage offered.  Thanks to Joe Hodgson, ENGIE Fabricom’s Regional Site Services Manager and his team for all their hard work.”

ENGIE Fabricom is one of the first organisations to achieve ISO 45001 in their industry sector

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom UK achieves ISO 45001 certification on the first attempt.

We recently underwent a process of migration from the OHSAS 18001 standard to the new ISO 45001 standard with Lloyds register and were successful with no non-conformances identified.

ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.

ISO 45001 is intended to be applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, type and nature. ISO 45001 enables an organisation, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing.

The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and follows other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.  It takes into account other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions.

Kevin Copley, HSEQ Director for ENGIE Fabricom comments: “We have been advised that we are one of the first organisations in our industry sector in this region of the UK to be certified to the standard by Lloyd’s Register.  This is a fantastic achievement for the Company.”

Following a highly successful project for the British Steel Concast Team on Caster 5 at the British Steel Scunthorpe site, the client has awarded ENGIE Fabricom’s project team a Health and Safety Excellence Award for works carried out during the Summer 2018 Outage.

This award was one of twelve presented on the day for each operational areas of the Scunthorpe site.

Joe Hodgson has commented:  “I would like to express my thanks to the whole project team, from the facility for the delivery of high quality fabrications to the site team for a safe installation during tight time constraints.  The team have shown an exemplary attitude towards safety given the difficult nature of the site.”

Mark Wingate, Director of EPC & EPCm commented, “This award clearly demonstrates British Steel’s recognition of the ENGIE Fabricom project site team and how they have operated to the highest standards whilst challenged with extreme site conditions and timescales.

On behalf of the business, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved, such performances provide a significant advantage to the business when clients are looking to select suppliers for future projects.”

Kevin Copley, ENGIE Fabricom’s HSEQ Director commented, “This is an excellent recognition of the performance of the whole project team and is great for the whole Company. This award is especially important to us in supporting British Steel with the ongoing process in improving their safety performance across the site and shows they value the contribution of high performing organisations that can add to this process.

The project was undertaken in some very challenging site conditions against a tight schedule which makes the fact the project had zero injuries or near miss incidents even more impressive.”
