Project

OYSTER WAVE PROJECT 24.02.12

Client: Bifab & Aquamarine Power Ltd

Challenge:
Aquamarine Power's Oyster project required a range of machining operations prior to completion at Bifab's facility in Burntisland, Fife. Due to the size of the components, a significant ammount of the machining had to be completed insitu and along with some tight geometrical tolerances, it was a challenging scope of work. Our laser alignment service was used alongside a range of insitu machine tools and our machine shop in Renfrew.

How Challenge Was Addressed:
The major works we carried out included the following:

Checking alignment of two base frames and two flap base casting end faces and bores. Machining of bearing house base frames.

Line boring, facing, drilling and tapping of the cylinder heel castings.

Off site machining of 1.2m diameter stainless steel stub shaft sleeves

Value Added:
Quote from Peter Holt " Without doubt the contribution of Reekie Machining

to this complex structure was a major contributor to its

success. They tackled and succeeded on machining

tasks considered unachievable by other machining

companies both in their workshops and at site"
