 Unit Birwelco Launches Dedicated Power Services Division.

Unit Birwelco Group has launched a new business unit geared to provide existing Power Plants in the UK with a dedicated, specialist Repair and Maintenance capability.

To meet the challenges of the ever-changing face of power generation in the UK, the group is re-focusing its power services strategy. With numerous waste-to-energy, biomass plants and combined cycle gas fired turbines coming on stream, Unit Birwelco has created a dedicated Power Services team to cope with minor and planned outages at plants across the UK.

Steve Atkinson, General Manager for Power Services, says this is a timely launch.

“These are interesting times within the UK power sector. We are seeing continued growth, particularly in waste-to-energy and biomass, but at the same time contraction within the engineering services sector supporting the construction and maintenance of these plants.

“Over the past few years Unit Birwelco has positioned itself extremely well within a very challenging marketplace and is now well placed to support this power sector growth.

“The Power Services division provides plant owners with a specialist repair and maintenance service backed up by process engineering design, manufacturing and fabrication. We can repair and maintain existing power plants and rapidly draw upon these other in-house capabilities when the work demands change and the scope increases.

“Equally, we can also offer a turnkey service for new power plants; from design, manufacturing, fabrication to installation and R&M activities.

The Power Services division will provide a comprehensive 24/7, 365 day-a-year repair, maintenance and specialist engineering support service to UK Power Generators across Gas, Waste to Energy, Biomass, Coal and Combined Heat and Power Facilities.

With over 40 years of experience Unit Birwelco Power Services’ highly responsive teams, that include experienced project leaders, mirror welders, pipefitters and platers, will deliver time and cost efficient solutions that minimise downtime and repair and maintenance costs.

Services provided will include:
• On-going Repair and Maintenance
• Statutory Inspection Repair and Maintenance support
• Pre and post NDE preparation and repair
• Pressure system diagnostics

Unit Birwelco Power Services will be supported by a specialist boiler and pressure system engineering design team and manufacturing and fabrication bases in North East Lincolnshire and South Wales.
