A number of significant contracts won by Buttimer Engineering over the summer have led to a busy autumn period, with the company demonstrating strong demand for design, installation, fabrication and on-site specialist engineering services. With a number of projects due to run into the first half of next year, a sustained period of growth in both Ireland and the UK looks set to continue. Some of the contracts secured are outlined briefly.
Under a number of separate contracts for Scheuch Engineering, Kurt Schuhmacher KG and SmartPly Europe, Buttimer are contributing to the installation of a new, state-of-the-art SmartPly OSB manufacturing line at the company’s Panel Products Innovation Centre in Belview, Waterford. Buttimer Engineering have been providing mechanical installation, steel erection, pipework, ducting and some fabrication services to the project. Buttimer’s work packages currently have more than 50 personnel on-site, and some are set to continue until early 2016.
Peel Ports, Liverpool
Buttimer are busily working on phase 1 of the installation of a biomass handling facility at the Port of Liverpool for Peel Ports – the project includes the installation of the biomass materials intake, handling system and support steelwork. Buttimer currently have over 20 personnel on-site, with phase 1 due to be completed in October 2015; phase 2 is planned to start in mid-October.
Hitachi Zosen Inova, Dublin
Buttimer Engineering have been contracted to deliver the main materials handling intake and process installation for the new Waste-to-Energy facility being engineered by Hitachi Zosen for Covanta Energy, at Poolbeg in Dublin. The project began in August, and Buttimer will have more than 25 personnel on-site for most of the project. Buttimer’s contracts fall into a number of installation packages – with work likely to continue into May of 2016.
Projects for The Lisheen Mine, Green Biofuels Ireland (GBI), Diageo Ireland and Glanbia are also ongoing. Buttimer Engineering is organising to meet the strong demand in a diverse range of sectors, and is working to build a strong, sustainable pipeline of projects into 2016.
