structural support

The Malin Newbuild team are on hand to provide specialist structural support. Through the utilisation of the latest techniques, we work to evaluate structural designs with due regard to client requirements, the relevant codes, production costs, safety and timeframe. We hold safety paramount with regards design, with a commitment to regularly review the operational and safety aspect of the structure or equipment we design.

Our experienced, accredited engineers utilise industry recognised software to conduct detailed analysis (including Inventor, AutoCAD, RHINO, Strand7 FEA, Nauticus).

We offer client’s real added value, in line with the latest codes and standards, through the following services:

  • First principle calculations, framework analysis and finite element analysis
  • Design to class: DNVGL, ABS and LR
  • Design codes: Eurocode 3, AISC, BS, ISO, NORSOK
  • Global and local analysis covering strength, fatigue, modal and accidental cases
  • Full drawing packages: 3D models, package, and fabrication drawings
  • Full build of structures

our experience

With one of the largest fabrication facilities on the West coast of Scotland, we offer a turnkey service to a range of sectors.

We have a strong history of delivering high spec, complex builds across a range of sectors, including:
• Commercial marine
Heavy fabrication
Civil nuclear
• Infrastructure
• Defence

Within this, client retention is a key element of our success. We place our clients requirements at the centre of all that we do, to ensure our solutions are effective, efficient – and that our clients are satisfied at every stage of the project.

With the experience and knowledge gained from working with clients such as Scottish Water, where, for example we have carried out the manufacturing, testing and delivery of a large diameter bifurcation shaft steel pipe, we have expanded our facility to now form one of the largest facilities on the West

Projects such as the Minesto buoy, a prototype wave turbine machine successfully delivered to the KG5 docks for shipment to Angelsey, and the development of a 22 tonne rotator and 28 tonne upender, specially designed to increase safety and efficiencies, demonstrate our aptitude for innovative, creative
solutions that are bespoke to your needs.

Harnessing established knowledge, techniques and skillsets, gained from years in the oil and gas energy, we have similarly brought innovation to the renewables market. As well as the Minesto buoy, and fabrication of the Archimedes Waveswing for Wave Energy Scotland (WES) and AWS Ocean Energy, we recently completed 26 wind platforms for the Beatrice wind farm, each manufactured, finished and delivered on time, within budget, and to specification.

We also have strong demonstratable experience with defense and nuclear clients, from the load test and delivery of a 70 tonne working submarine platform, to the fabrication, finishing and design of key components for Hinkely Point.

This diverse experience is built upon a trusted team of specialists who are here to meet your requirements.
