Barnshaws delivers rolled steel cylinders

The Hamilton branch of metal-bending expert Barnshaws has delivered 11 rolled steel cylinders to form two deaerator vessels destined for the Johan Sverdrup oilfield in the North Sea.

Work had to be carried out within three weeks, meeting transport arrangements and ensuring the deaeration vessels could be installed on the offshore platform as quickly as possible. Barnshaws rolled 35 tonnes of steel plate at 16 mm thickness to a diameter of 3.8 m, producing the 11 finished cylinders. Offshore platforms are hazardous working environments where safety and space efficiency are of the utmost importance, so the rolled cylinders had to adhere to stringent quality levels.
