Balmoral Comtec has completed the installation of its manufacturing plant at its new composites facility at Montrose Port, UK. The company invested a seven-figure sum in the 18,299 sq.ft (1700 sq.m) quayside facility where large scale composite components such as subsea and wellhead protection, wave energy structures and manifold covers for the offshore (wind) energy sector will be built.
Balmoral already provides protection products (fatigue, impact and abrasion), buoyancy (mooring and cable) and tethering solutions (clamps) to the offshore wind sector. The new manufacturing site at the Port of Montrose will allow the company to deliver its composite products direct from shore to ship as the sector expands in the waters off the coast of Scotland and further afield. 30-40 skilled and semi-skilled jobs will be created initially with more expected as this branch of the business grows.
