BS 1090 CE Welding In The Humber

We are currently working on a project to fabricate a Pipe Thruster Frame that will carry a pipe line under the river Humber from the South Bank to the North. This has been a magnificent achievement for our coded welders who have worked to our BS 1090 CE standard to create a complex structure that weighs in excess of 20 tonnes.

Our team have worked to very tight tolerances with all welding performed at the highest level. We have non-destructive tests performed on our welding so we know that they conform to a very high standard and are 100% solid.

Spring 2020

The frame has been fabricated in 6 parts so it can be easily transported to a site near the South Bank ready for reassembly and commissioning.

We expect the Truster Frame to be put into operation sometime in Spring this will well published on local media.

Bacon Engineering undertook the fabrication of a bespoke support frame for HPT JV, as part of the World’s Longest Pipeline Insertion. This frame provided support to the main piece of equipment for the Insertion process, a 750t pipe thruster. During the pipeline insertion process the frame was subject lateral loads up to 500t. It performed exceptionally well and is a testament to the quality of the fabrication works carried out by team at Bacon Engineering.

Throughout the procurement and manufacturing process, the HPT JV received a fantastic service from those at Bacon Engineering and will continue to utilise them in the future.
