CRP Subsea invests in new manufacturing facility
CRP Subsea has made a large-scale investment in a new manufacturing facility in Skelmersdale to support its transition from primarily serving the oil and gas sector into the renewables market. The purpose-built facility includes a state-of-the-art semi-automated production line for the NjordGuard cable protection system used in offshore wind farms.
The new facility will enable CRP Subsea to significantly improve the flow of materials, achieve throughput efficiencies and increase productivity, increasing overall production output. The company says the enhanced capacity will position CRP Subsea to support the growing number of offshore wind projects.
Ray Cann, head of operations at CRP Subsea, said: “We are at the forefront of technical engineering and innovation, providing reliable, proven Dynamic Bending Stiffener solutions within the oil and gas industry. As renewable energy demands increase, we want to play an active part in applying our 25+ years’ polyurethane experience, technical expertise and knowledge to protect our customers critical assets. We are keen to support the commitments made at COP26 and the drive to net zero.”
The new 12,000 square metre facility in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, will also lead to CRP Subsea increasing its staff resource to support the expansion of the business.
