CRP Subsea has made a large-scale investment in a new manufacturing facility to support its transition from primarily oil and gas into the renewables market. It includes a ‘state of the art’ semi-automated production line for the NjordGuard cable protection system used in offshore wind farms.
The new facility enables CRP Subsea to significantly improve flow of materials, achieve throughput efficiencies and increase productivity, increasing Bend Stiffener production output by a factor of 20. The enhanced capacity has positioned CRP Subsea to support the growing number of offshore wind projects.
Ray Cann, head of operations at CRP Subsea said: “We are at the forefront of technical engineering and innovation, providing reliable, proven dynamic Bending Stiffener solutions within the oil and gas industry. As renewable energy demands increase, we want to play an active part in applying our 25-plus years’ polyurethane experience, technical expertise and knowledge to protect our customers critical assets. We are keen to support the commitments made at COP26
and the drive to ‘net zero’.”
facility in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, was constructed using lean manufacturing principles and with a focus on environmental efficiency and includes the very latest manufacturing equipment.
