Why Specially Designed Equipment is Crucial to Success
When B&W Energy Services was contacted to perform pre-commissioning services for Shell’s flagship Prelude FLNG Project currently under construction in South Korea, B&W moved in quickly to design and build customized temporary cleaning equipment necessary to meet the confined space requirements onboard this large floating vessel. B&W had to think outside the box when designing the equipment for this project. This is because the equipment would need to meet the same high efficiency and low noise specifications as B&W’s standard equipment, but with a much smaller footprint. With B&W’s pre-engineering services, we were able to identify these unique equipment requirements early, then design and build the equipment on an expedited basis to support an aggressive mobilization schedule. B&W’s specially designed equipment will assist toward keeping this project on track as we enter the second phase of this work—the actual steam blow cleaning services—onboard ship this year. This project is just one example of how B&W’s specialized equipment is benefiting clients both near and far.
When the four founding partners of B&W established the company, they immediately addressed an area for improvement in the pre-commissioning industry. They realized that complex projects require specialized equipment that you can’t just buy off the shelf. It seemed clear to the B&W team that specially designed equipment would benefit our clients, their projects, and even B&W itself.
With that realization, B&W set out to create its own specialty equipment—equipment with the ability to be quickly and easily mobilized for various projects around the globe, equipment that requires minimal assembly during cleaning setup, and equipment that is in compliance with ASME standards. The result? Much greater efficiency and safety, and reduced schedule and cost.
B&W’s equipment is uniquely designed to deliver high-quality results for our clients’ most complex industrial cleaning projects. Part of B&W’s tagline, and promise to customers, is “Better Equipment.” We believe our specially designed equipment allows us to give our clients the superior services they expect and trust us to provide.
