Offshore Steel Fabrication Service

Our professional offshore steel fabrication teams are highly skilled in the manufacturing of materials and products that are durable and versatile enough to be used in the harsh conditions of the offshore industry including sectors such as the Oil & Gas industry.

We have experienced and qualified teams with the skills necessary to meet and exceed challenging regulations in this field. We always use the highest quality materials, meaning that our metal fabrication business considers quality and safety every time. You can rest easy when choosing CB Construction, knowing that your offshore steel fabrication or construction project is in the safest of hands.

Heavy Section Steel Fabricators

We undertake the steel fabrication of the most up to date and intricate structures in heavy sections within the oil and gas sector. This is to ensure a longer lifespan for the project.

Within this process, we use a whole range of different materials including steel, carbon steel, nickel based alloys and high strength metals. Once these metals are formed into useful parts, we are then able to prepare the surfaces of the metals for the harsh conditions they will face, this can include painting protective layers to deter rusting and also the application of fire resistant coatings too. We pride ourselves on our fantastic corrosion control and high health and safety qualities.

Steel Fabrication Projects

We work tirelessly on every project to ensure exceptional results upon the conclusion of a project. Check out the images opposite which demonstrate just a small selection of our recently completed work.

Useful information about Steel Fabrication…

Steel – Flexible & Strong

Steel is a material that we come across and use in our everyday lives. For instance, your kitchen sink is likely to be stainless steel, and the vehicles you drive will also be made up of parts made from steel.

Steel is used for a whole manner of different products as it is one of the strongest materials for the job. With over 3,000 kinds of steel, the industry is large, global and complex. With that being said, the country that produces the largest amount of steel per year is China. Although, this will come with no surprise to many as China is also the country who uses the most steel annually.

Metal Fabrication

Metal fabrication can be completed through two main processes. The first process is a raw material approach as it requires the use of heat and pressure, which allows metal to be reshaped through cutting and welding. Most steel fabricators adopt this method.

The alternative approach would be to use an Electric Arc Furnace (EAF), which is a much more efficient means of melting down the steel. This method is opted for less frequently, despite being a much quicker way to create steel. However, both methods of steel fabrication involve high temperatures, and a lot of labour-intensive work.

Steel Fabrication – Process

Aside from making steel itself, steel fabrication is the process of shaping, cutting and bending steel alloy to create a certain piece of metal. These pieces are then often connected and attached together to form a specific product.

These products are then marketable and become items that have a whole range of uses in the modern world. The process of steel fabrication is complex, and requires highly-skilled professional technicians to complete the job safely. A large element of this work is difficult and requires a keen eye, with little room for mistakes.
