Engineering specialist wins new contract

Engineering specialist wins new contractA leading north-east engineering solutions business has made
an encouraging start to the year with the announcement of new contracts worth a combined £750,000.

SengS has designed, manufactured and delivered various projects, including a containerised test unit for an Aberdeen-based oilfield equipment company; allowing for
the safe and efficient execution of work scopes within the customer’s own facility.

Further afield, SengS has kicked-off its first project in Spain with the design of a bespoke test facility for a valve manufacturing company that will be housed at its plant near Bilbao.

The business, which was acquired by private-equity backed manufacturer Pryme Group in November 2016, is also in discussions with several customers to provide engineering sup­port for their installed base assets, as well as development of their proprietary tooling.

These latest contract wins have coincided with a further investment in a new environmental chamber at the SengS facility – capable of testing equipment at up to 20,000psi pressure and between minus 50 and 250degC.

The environmental chamber will increase capacity and build on the company’s key differentiator of quick turnaround times and its agility in responding to ever-changing customer requirements.

The Ellon-based company has invested more than £4million in recent years in developing its 9,817ft2 test facility.

This has included enhancements to existing pressure testing capability through the addition of a custom-built 60ft plain end test rig and a large, external water test tank that can accommodate a full Xmas tree stack-up.

David Benison, managing director at SengS, said: “After taking on the role in 2019, my immediate focus was to stabilise the business and put us in a better place to embark on the growth plan that will move the business forward.

“As part of this, we have strengthened our engineering capability and are well positioned to manage the turnkey projects that will use the breadth of the Pryme Group companies in satisfying our customers’ requirements.

“Having strong, clear and unambiguous values as an organisation is the key to driving the culture required to allow the Pryme businesses to grow.

“We now have the team in place that will enable the growth required to meet the strategic ambitions both internally at SengS and as part of the wider Pryme Group.”

Based at the Balmacassie Commercial Park in Ellon, SengS provides engineering, testing, control and hydraulic systems, and tooling to the oil and gas, aerospace and defence industries, among others.

Its manufacturing and test facilities are geared towards specialist pressure and environmental qualification testing of customer-owned equipment, including actuators, valves, and gaskets.

Since 2012, the company has successfully delivered more than 600 projects across multiple disciplines for clients in the North Sea, Norway, Azerbaijan, the Middle East, and West Africa.
