Recent Work

Repair & Refurbishment of Steam Turbines

Langage Power Station in Plymouth engaged A&P’s specialist blend of in-house machining and engineering expertise to overhaul three steam turbines. A six week intensive programme of work was undertaken at A&P’s Falmouth facility. Each of the turbines required specialist transfer and lifting into A&P’s 3,500m² machining workshop. Work included stripping the components, precision blasting and crack detection NDT to ensure the equipment was tested and compliant to remain in service for a further five years.

Automatic Hydraulic Flood Barriers

In a year-long programme, A&P Falmouth worked closely with Food Control International, a UK based specialist supplier and installer of flood defence systems, to fabricate specialist flood barriers to protect the New York University Hospital’s underground loading dock and garage. Standing at 4 metres tall and 10 metres wide, the barriers required A&P’s extensive design and fabrication expertise as well as its unfaltering commitment to quality-driven engineering excellence. Using A&P Falmouth’s on-site fabrication, machining and paint workshops, the team machined and welded the ancillary fittings and pins required to fabricate all four barriers.
