Power Generation (Energy)
The power generation sector is currently experiencing a major global overhaul with the emphasis on improving the efficiency of existing oil, gas, coal fired and biomass power plants with major new investments in nuclear and renewables such as wave, wind and tidal energy.
Angle Ring supplies bending services for all of these areas with induction bends, rolled sections and cylinders for offshore wind towers, rolled sections and cylinders for wave and tidal energy projects, induction bends for steam pipes in coal fired, gas and oil power plants and tube manipulation, press braking, section bending and plate rolling for nuclear power plants.
One major project, part of the Crown Estates’ ‘Round One’ cycle of wind facilities and one of the most ambitious of its kind ever undertaken in Britain, is an offshore wind and gas farm located in the Irish Sea, ten kilometres off the coast of Walney Island near Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, due for completion by the end of 2011. Angle Ring’s involvement in the project is a vital one in supplying J Tube induction bends that provide protective sleeves for the power cables deployed from each of the thirty 5MW turbines to the shore.
Our heavy rolling and press brake capability gives us the ability to offer cylinders and pipes of up to 10 metres in length, 3.5 metres in diameter and up to 200 millimetres in thickness in a wide range of materials from carbon steels and stainless steels to nickel alloys, duplex, aluminium and titanium.
We also supply welded cylinders in accordance with welding procedures to boiler and pressure vessel codes. While a full complement of independent testing services and pre and post bend services supplements and supports our core bending capabilities.
Our extensive experience of working to the exacting specifications demanded by the industry enables us to offer a high quality, dedicated service to both end users and sub suppliers with experienced staff always on hand to discuss individual requirements and respond rapidly and efficiently to any breakdown situations.
