An old salmon workboat was purchased in 2005 to repair for use as a company workboat. It was built in 1978 and had had a hard life with most of the steelwork either damaged or rusted.
Welcome to Nortech Marine
Nortech Marine's services include:
- Welding and fabrication (including pipe fitting) in steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
- Industrial painting and blasting on site or in our purpose built blastroom.
- Abrasive waterjet cutting with applications for engineering components, metal fabrication, signs, ornamental stonework, marble worktops.
Nortech Marine secured a contract in summer 2008 to refurbish one of two 3000 tonne bulk storage tanks at Scottish and Southern Energy's Lerwick station as part of their scheduled maintenance programme. In 2013 we won the contract to do the remaining storage tank.
Nortech Marine has invested heavily in welding machines that can handle all welding procedures, both in the workshop and mobile engine driven site machines.
Our purpose built blastroom can take any structure up to a size of 15m long x 5m wide x 5m high. A 8000cubic ft per min extractor keeps the air inside the blastroom clear and also protects the environment from any dust escaping.
