A Wallsend company has launched a new division to help expand its product range.
Engineering and construction contractor OGN Group has launched a pipework division to deliver specialist fabrication services for bespoke projects.
OGN’s pipework fabrication division has been established to provide all levels of industry with their pipework requirements.
OGN, based at the Hadrian Yard, provides a broad range of services for all forms of fabricated pipework to oil and gas, petrochemical and subsea codes.
The division, which is manned by a team of experienced engineers, also offers onsite radiography inspection, positive material identification, pipework blasting & coating activities in addition to pneumatic & hydrostatic pressure testing, all to international standards.
David Edwards, CEO of OGN Group, said: “The skills of our workforce and the investments we have made in our facility and technology has enabled us to create this division, which will operate alongside larger EPC projects we deliver.
“As the offshore market is evolving we are experiencing interest from both existing and potential customers throughout the energy sector looking at our capabilities to provide bespoke fabrication work that is part of other projects.
“Our focus on productivity, which is supported by the investments we have made in new technology, is attractive to operators and other contractors who are addressing the well-publicised challenges facing the industry, and in particular the UK oil & gas market.
“The launch of the pipework fabrication division is part of our approach to remain an agile and proactive part of the supply chain through its current evolutionary journey, as we ensure to meet all of our clients pipework fabrication requirements.”
