Case Study: Vast expansion to the Siemens Gamesa Blade Factory
Early 2022 we met with our client to discuss whether we could keep up with supply, through what was looking to be a challenging year, for Siemens Gamesa, the world’s leader in the offshore wind industry, to expand its successful offshore blade factory in Hull. After many discussions we agreed on a fail proof plan reserving stock and maintaining prices to make for a seamless project.
The Client: Well-known and well-respected Hull based M & E contractor took ok this challenge to help Siemens in doubling the size of their manufacturing facilities. The expansion represents an investment of £186 million and is planned to be completed in 2023
The Project: With the scale of the project vast amounts of pre cut Channel and Threaded Rod were required at short notice and our team rose to the challenge and exceeded expectations as always. Some of the other products supplied were Rubber Lined Clips, Conduit, Munsen Rings, GalvaMate, Channel Brackets etc.
The Result: A reliable seamless supply was paramount to this project with teams of workers needed to be kept busy throughout. In fulfilling our Armafix promise not only are we supporting the community in Hull but also helping in unlocking the potential of wind energy around the globe. With Siemens promise of safe, efficient, and reliable manufacturing, over 1,500 blades have been delivered to their customers worldwide. It been a pleasure to be a part of supporting our valued customer and also in helping Siemens add to its already massive capacity in the future.
