COMPANY

BALMORAL IS A TRUSTED PARTNER TO THE OFFSHORE ENERGY SECTOR
 

We offer unrivalled technical expertise, a vast project track record, evidence-based buoyancy, protection and insulation product solutions. This, combined with an open approach to stakeholder engagement, ensures success.

Proprietary laboratory, hydrostatic and mechanical testing facilities enable us to research, identify and develop cost effective materials across a spectrum of applications. We continue to make significant investments in the most comprehensive syntactic, composite and polymer processing facilities the sector has ever seen and our products are used in the deepest and most hostile waters of the world.

Providing services from concept development through detailed design, toolmaking, manufacturing and testing our products are predominantly used by the oil & gas and offshore wind sectors.

We have worked with them for a long time – as a supplier and closely in developing new products. Where we have gone into deeper water or more challenging loading, worked closely with them and they have developed new technology for us. They are good at that. They always deliver.

ACCREDITED, COST EFFECTIVE, SAFE SOLUTIONS

Balmoral boasts an extensive track record in some of the most onerous operating conditions in the world. As the industry continues its journey into deeper waters the company differentiates itself by providing fully accredited, safe and highly cost effective design and manufacturing solutions.

In March 2013 the American Petroleum Institute (API) released specifications 17L1 for flexible pipe ancillary equipment and 17L2 recommended practice for flexible pipe ancillary equipment.

The API 17L specification stipulates the minimum requirements for the design, material selection, manufacture, documentation, testing, marking and packaging of flexible pipe ancillary equipment including buoyancy modules, clamping systems, bend stiffeners and restrictors.

The API standard covers all materials, design, testing and manufacturing methodologies used in the system to provide uplift to 4.65Te at water depths to 10,000ft.

To achieve Bureau Veritas approval in line with API 17L standards Balmoral successfully completed an 11-month development programme that consisted of four phases: quality audit; design review; material qualification; inspection and testing.

Clients should enquire whether or not their supplier is accredited in line with API standards to ensure the optimum products and services for their project are provided.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

With extensive experience of managing the design, manufacture and despatch of buoyancy, protection and insulation product solutions, Balmoral’s project management team works closely with clients to ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget.

As members of the Association of Project Management, our team operates to recognised global competency standards from order placement through to delivery.

MANUFACTURING

We are constantly developing our operations to retain our place at the forefront of the buoyancy, protection and insulation product solutions market.

Now offering even more efficiency and automation the facility has been re-designed and laid out to provide consistently high quality fit-for-purpose products on a continuous basis.

Comprising comprehensive syntactic foam processing capabilities and an advanced polyurethane facility we also produce our own macrospheres and run dedicated marine anti-fouling and rotational moulding operations.

They are a trusted supplier and we know if we have a challenge it’s a relatively seamless process to escalate and get a resolution.
TOOLMAKING, STEEL FABRICATION AND MACHINING

Our Newcastle operation supports the growing demand for high quality rotational moulding tools, steel fabrication and machining requirements. This in-house service means that the company is in total control of these time-critical processes and doesn’t have to rely on external suppliers or out-sourcing.

Not only does this ensure delivery schedules are met it also means that costs are kept under very strict control; time and cost savings that ultimately benefit customers.

I was on a tour of the facility last year which formed a lasting positive image of the company. It cares for its working environment and the workforce. The hygiene of the factory speaks about the same quality and attention to detail that goes into the product. That is a powerful part of the positive message.

PERSONNEL DEVELOPMENT

Balmoral’s commitment to training and development is well recognised. There is recognition within the company that highly motivated and achievement-focused teams are an asset while also promoting confidence and pride within individuals.

All training achievements are recorded, along with appropriate certificates, to allow easy demonstration and tracking of operator competencies.
