The company based in the north of Scotland (UK) was established in 2014 to provide a technology development service for clients across a range of sectors. The team has experience working in engineering firms with a strong research & development (R&D) focus. The core skills of the company are technology development, mechanical engineering, and prototyping. They have successfully delivered projects of varying size and scope from small projects (<£10k) through to large (>£500k) multi-year projects working with international partners.
Their capabilities include:
- Mechanical & structural design, including:
conceptual design, detailed design, mechatronics, analysis (hand calcs & finite element analysis (FEA) ), fabrication drawings, reports, bills of material etc
- Numerical Modelling, including:
Levelised Cost Of Energy (LCOE) Modelling, performance and loading numerical modelling/analysis & reporting
- Testing, including:
Test planning, setting parameters, scaling effects, test rig design & specification, bench testing/commissioning, test programme running, instrumentation, data acquisition (DAQ) data processing, and then numerical modelling validation.
- Tank Testing, including:
Model design & build, instrumentation specification & test planning, data acquisition and processing, report writing.
- Project Management, including:
Budgeting, planning, supply chain and fabrication management
Examples of the types of projects the company has been involved in include:
•3D printing parts for a demonstrator of a new easy-use buoy system for marinas;
•Investigating the technical and economic feasibility of recycling paper in the Falklands;
•Structural design of a fabricated frame for hydraulic pipe handling equipment;
•Various bits of additional simulation investigation work for Sea Power;
•A fascinating mechatronics project involving building a working desktop demonstrator
The company has been involved in international collaboration and is keen to increase their international activity and in particular collaborative working through services agreements and subcontracting.
