Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd has successfully completed a contract to deliver its world-renowned hazard protection solutions for BP’s Kinneil Liquid Petroleum Gas (KLPG) Chilldown Project


Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd has successfully completed a contract to deliver its world-renowned hazard protection solutions for BP’s Kinneil Liquid Petroleum Gas (KLPG) Chilldown Project. The contract – awarded to the Darlington based company by fabrication specialists Burntisland Fabrications (BiFab) – involved supplying fire and blast relief walls and specialist fire louvres for BP’s new refrigeration plant at its Kinneil RLPG Plant in Grangemouth. The onshore terminal processes crude oil from the North Sea and is an integral part of the BP Forties Pipeline System.

Speaking about the new contract win, Anthony Jones, Business Development Director at Mech- Tool Engineering said: “Our hazard protection solutions play an integral role in protecting personnel and assets. With demands for exceptional safety standards, Mech-Tool Engineering prides itself on designing and manufacturing fire and blast solutions that meet – and in many cases – exceed the industry’s highest standards and as such, this is one of the major factors as to why we are securing contracts on such high profile oil and gas projects.”

The company will provide highly specialised fire louvers, which will allow blasts to transfer through the wall systems as well as deflect these up, over and away from hazards.

And the contract win adds to the company’s string of multi-million-pound deals awarded to the Mech-Tool Engineering business, adding to its already impressive portfolio. Most recently, the company announced it will be supplying fire and blast walls to be deployed on the Galloper Offshore Wind Farm and awarded by leading engineering and fabrication specialists Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG).
