Swire Announce Multi-million-pound technology investment
Swire Energy Services (SES) have committed to a £4M investment for the installation of two new robotic blast and paint coating processes across their UK and Norway operations. The leading-edge robotic technology for the blasting and paint coating process will support Swire Energy Services North Sea offshore container rental fleet of 28,000 units. The technology allows for consistently delivered quality through the precise application of blast media and paint coatings which will extend the operating life of the fleet. The robotic installation will also increase SES’s capacity to support maintenance and services for customer equipment.
The automation project, expected to be installed during the second half of 2021 in Aberdeen and Stavanger, will see SES emissions related to the process reduce by more than 30% for both locations.
Speaking on the investment, Michael King VP for Operations at Swire Energy Services, commented “As part of our ongoing commitment to innovate, digitalize and reduce our carbon emissions, I am delighted to announce the launch of this project. The new automation processes will allow us to maintain our North Sea rental fleet to the highest standard whilst reducing our process and energy related emissions. Also, and perhaps more significantly, by extending the operating life of our fleet we will reduce the need for early disposal and replacement which in turn will reduce emissions across the entire supply chain. We see the investment of technology across our global business as critical to ensuring SES achieves carbon neutrality, with the additional benefit of delivering greater operational efficiencies to our customers.”
