Fabrication Services

We are specialized in creating custom designed tools and structures that allow you to perform installation projects safely and on time. Due to the sheer size of our designs and an often limited time schedule, there is usually little time for testing and no room for modifications. This requires a comprehensive design, but also a systematic fabrication process; our work does not stop after the design phase.

If our understanding of our design and the fabricator’s expertise on constructing is combined, we can make sure your specific construction will function as intended and make sure the entire process of fabrication is optimal. To achieve this, we offer our fabrication services.

Our dedicated team of fabrication engineers has extensive experience in all facets of fabrication. Moreover, we have built up a large network and database with all types of suppliers and subcontractors required to assist you in fabricating your temporary works.

PROCUREMENT ASSISTANCE

“A SMOOTH FABRICATION PROCESS STARTS WITH A WELL-THOUGHT-OUT RFQ, WHICH INCLUDES ALL ASPECTS OF THE FABRICATION PROCESS, FROM PROCUREMENT UP TO COMMISSIONING.”

We built up a large network and database with all types of suppliers and subcontractors required to assist our client with procurement and fabrication works. We use this knowledge to save precious time by requesting quotations to selected fabricators and (hydraulic) suppliers parallel to the design works. Continuous improvement of the procurement cycle is achieved by implementing all experiences from previous projects in the databases and RfQ documents.

FABRICATION ASSISTANCE

“OUR ROLE AS FABRICATION ENGINEER IS TO SMOOTHEN THE TRANSITION FROM DESIGN TO A FIT FOR PURPOSE PRODUCT.”

The fabrication of constructions is a complex process integrating many disciplines, in order to fabricate an effective tool. Our fabrication engineers are specialized in recognizing possible issues and solving them on the spot, avoiding delays and ensuring a smooth fabrication process with optimal results.

Our fabrication assistance starts with the kick-off meeting where all important aspects of the design and fabrication are discussed. During fabrication, the progress and quality of the constructions will be inspected during regular site visits. Progress, observations, remarks, concerns and actions will be documented in site visit reports. The interval of the site visits can be easily intensified or reduced.

  • SMART BALANCE BETWEEN PLANNING, COSTS AND QUALITY
  • OPTIMAL FUNCTIONALITY OF CONSTRUCTIONS
  • SMOOTH FABRICATION PROCESS
  • PREVENTING INSTEAD OF FIXING
  • ADVISE ON REQUEST-FOR-VARIATION FROM FABRICATORS
  • BROAD EXPERIENCE WITH VARIOUS SUPPLIERS AND SUBCONTRACTORS

MOBILIZATION ASSISTANCE AND FIELD ENGINEERING

Despite a lot of effort is spend in preparing the mobilization, often the on-site situation proves more complex and last minute decisions need to be made. Moreover, it all happens under tense time pressure. Our field engineers can assist you making safe decisions rapidly, resulting in a smooth mobilization and a fully functional vessel. During the execution of the installation project, the constructions can be further refined to improve workability or cycle times. By monitoring the operation and using the knowledge of our designs, our field engineers will appoint improvements and work out a design or quick fix to improve the operation on the spot.
