With extensive experience in projects from the Asia-Pacific through to the North Sea, as a UK manufacturing company, over 75% of Nylacasts business is export, supplying over 38 different countries with engineering solutions in a range of sectors including Automotive, Construction and Oil & Gas on a global platform.

Lord Green commented on his visit to Leicester by saying, “Turning the UK’s trade deficit around is not going to happen overnight, it’s going to take years – it’s a marathon, not a sprint – but it’s a marathon we can complete. I am very encouraged with what I’ve seen and heard at the companies I have visited today. They are leading the way when it comes to overseas success, helping put this county firmly on the export map.

Lord Green was particularly interested in the unique qualities and advantages of the materials and solutions provided by Nylacast working closely as a trusted engineering solutions provider to a vast array of industries and companies worldwide. In addition to a high focus on customer relationships and R&D in synergy with a value adding solution.

It’s a great morale booster for the company and we are proud to welcome Lord Green to our site”.

Lord Green also met and spoke to a number of university students and apprentices, as well as international students on internships and staff members on management training courses.

With an increasing worry of skills shortages in the UK, this is a positive fact for both Nylacast and UK manufacturing, Nylacast CEO, Mussa Mahomed commented, “As a way of combating a skills shortage and investing in people, its great to see staff members improving their skills through in-house training courses as well as enthusiastic young students wanting to gain experience and education through placements and apprenticeships. The apprentices currently at Nylacast have made great strides and will make successful engineers of the future; they get to work through the whole business from maintenance right through to quality control coupled with the benefit of gaining qualifications at the same time. It continues to be a mark of commitment for Nylacast to be able to have an input in the early stages of their careers”.

DeepOcean Awarded Trenching Contract with Statnett and

Darlington, 28 June 2012 — DeepOcean today announces the multi-million pound pre-cut trenching contract award with Statnett & on the Skagerrak 4 HVDC Submarine Interconnector Project.

DeepOcean will provide the engineering and project management for the pre-cut trenching workscope in Denmark, which is expected to commence in July 2012. The scope of work will include mobilisation out of DeepOcean’s offshore base in Middlesbrough, pre-trench survey and pre-cut trenching of 23 kilometres of the Skagerrak 4 route.

Handled out of the UK office, DeepOcean will provide its heavy duty APP pre-cut trenching plough for the project, which provides high control and instrumentation during operation. This will be operated off the high bollard pull TSV Maersk Assister, which will arrive into DeepOcean’s offshore base later next week to commence mobilisation activities.

DeepOcean leads the market in the use of pre-cut trenching for the protection of submarine power cables. As the only independent contractor with sophisticated pre-cut ploughing capability, DeepOcean offers a number of ploughs for this solution and has a proven track record in the operation of these. Its specialist ploughs offer a high level of control and precision, capable of navigating along pre-determined cable routes and transitioning in and out of the seabed as required. These solutions eliminate any risk of product damage and provide a high quality trench for the protection of HVAC and HVDC export cables.

Managing Director, Tony Inglis, says of the pre-cut trenching contract, “We are delighted to be awarded this pre-cut trenching workscope, as DeepOcean is highly skilled in this area and believe this is the ideal solution for achieving the best burial depth in hard ground regions, whilst removing any risk of cable damage.

“We have been using pre-cut trenching as the technique of choice in the Oil & Gas market for many years and are pleased to now be applying this to the Power & Transmission market with Statnett and We are also looking to expand this technique into the Offshore Wind market over the coming months.”
