TSP Engineering Ltd.

Heavy Fabrications

Design, Fabrication, Machining, Assembly and Testing

Overview

Since its inception in 1945, TSP Engineering's Workington Facility has built up extensive knowledge and experience in delivering demanding projects within the Nuclear, Defence, Steel, Industrial and Oil / Gas Industries. These projects have typically involved design, manufacture, testing and commissioning of large scale plant and machinery to an exacting quality standard.

TSP has specialist resources dedicated towards the cost-effective manufacture and maintenance of heavy industrial plant and equipment. The workshop currently operates 16 hours a day, 5 days a week and is available all year round with the flexibility to switch to 24 hour, 7 day working when demands require it. This provides a unique capability to carry out modifications or adjustments to plant and equipment should problems be encountered during testing and customer witnessing of equipment on our site. Thereby allowing manufacturing specific programmes and delivery schedules to suit customer requirements.

The main TSP facility comprises of 19,200 square metres of shop floor capacity, 2 x 5 metre deep manufacturing pits and a maximum lifting capability of 130 tonnes, utilised by a team of highly skilled personnel within the areas of machining, fabrication, shot blasting and painting, heat treatment, assembly and testing.

Recent Work

MSSS Refurbishment of Packages and Gamma Gates

The MSSS Package is used for the transfer of waste materials. TSP Engineering in Workington was awarded a contract to carry out the modification, rebuild, testing and commissioning of 8 off Packages and 5 off Gamma Gates.

The package receipt area on the Gamma Gate was clad with stainless steel and re-machined. New locking mechanisms were incorporated into the side plates and the electrical trunking was modified to bring it in line with the latest specifications.

The Gamma Gates underwent cladding, machining, shot blast and painting. Following which they were then assembled and transferred to the Test Rig to undergo a rigorous test schedule and Works Acceptance Testing.

A purpose built test rig was erected, including an in-house designed and manufactured test panel, to functionally test the Packages and Gamma Gates prior to delivery.
