A world leader in the design and fabrication of aluminium structures for offshore use, NCMP has maintained its position at the forefront of the development of aluminium technology.

NCMP offer a complete service, from planning and consultation at the earliest concept stages, to fabrication and installation of the structure offshore. All work is carried out in accordance with BS EN ISO 9000:2008 Quality Assurance and Control Procedures to ensure the highest standards of workmanship and attention to detail.

Having designed and installed both the first and the largest helidecks in the UK offshore sector, NCMP have pioneered the extension of the benefits of the material to primary support structures, flooring, stair towers, ship-to-shore access facilities and many other applications.

As an international organisation, NCMP has the experience, the financial discipline and the organisational ability to complete the largest contracts anywhere in the world.

Our team of skilled designers, metallurgists and engineers, backed by the most advanced plant and process techniques, combine imaginative and innovative thinking with practical problem-solving experience to provide the optimum solution to meet the specific requirements of offshore projects.

 

DESIGN

 

To realise the full potential of aluminium it is essential that the project team involve NCMP at the very earliest opportunity; light alloy structures cannot simply be treated as steel substitutes, but require a different concept and design approach.

At the design stage NCMP provide the optimum alloy specification, together with full design layout and frame analysis to demonstrate how all dead and superimposed loads are supported.

Full working drawings are then completed and fabrication using the latest construction technology is carried out in accordance with BS EN ISO 9000:2008.

Operating in a world-wide market, NCMP has a wealth of international experience with completed projects in all major territories, ranging from simple pre-fabrication and delivery contracts to long-term national schemes involving on-site design development.

 

BENEFITS OF ALUMINIUM

 

The unique physical and mechanical properties of aluminium alloys continue to offer a vast area of opportunity for innovative and cost-effective solutions to offshore structural requirements.

The exceptional strength-to-weight ratio of aluminium alloys combined with the versatility of the extrusion process allows economic use of material, placing the strength exactly where required with minimum additional topside weight. Weight savings of 40-70% over the equivalent steel structures may thus be achieved.

Complex, interlocking sections with weld preparation designed into extrusions or slots incorporated for “bolt-on” assembly achieve simple and fast installation on site. Isolating transition plates allow simple connection to steel, where required.

The inherent corrosion resistance of selected alloys means that no added surface protection against the marine atmosphere is required and a consequent saving in long-term maintenance is achieved. 

Furthermore, the non-combustible quality of aluminium alloys in any solid form (e.g. plate, sheet, extrusions, castings etc.) allows light-weight aluminium structures to be used for escape routes.
