The first in a series of massive steel alloy pressure vessels have started their journey from Motherwell to Korea. Leading engineering group Motherwell Bridge is moving out huge pressure vessels, which are bound for the world’s largest offshore production facility under construction in the Far East. The sophisticated pressure vessels are part of a £3 million contract for one of the most ambitious oil and gas developments ever undertaken. They will be installed on a huge 270-metres long ship which will be used to pump oil and gas from the Laminaria and Corallina reservoirs in the Timor Sea, off north-western Australia. Motherwell Bridge fought off intense international competition from other engineering contractors in Europe, south east Asia and Australia to build the process vessels, which have all been designed and built at the firm’s Motherwell fabrication facility.
