Deebridge in Aberdeen Cathedral Crisis
Customer Name: Saint Andrews Cathedral, Aberdeen

Date: 29/10/2014

Overview
Deebridge were contacted by the cathedral to advise that they had a serious problem with the fan motor providing the air to the organ situated within the cathedral, and asked if Deebridge could assist and advised that this matter was very urgent given that they had upcoming festivals.

Workscope
Deebridge sent engineers to assess the problem and rectify if possible on site, however given the mechanical damage the fan motor and impeller had to be removed from site for repair. After inspection of the motor and impeller at Deebridge's workshop it was found the motor was beyond repair and the impeller require substantial mechanical rework, to compound matters the motor was non standard and obsolete. After discussion with Richard Kilgour at the cathedral it was agreed to replace the motor with a metric version which would require modifications during installation and get the impeller required. Deebridge engineers a few days later returned to site to install the motor and modify the fixing base, refitted the fan impeller and commissioned the final assembly.

Customer Feedback
I would like to say that all your help assistance in this matter has been such a help. With the skills and engineers from Deebridge we have been able to overcome this considerable crisis as we approach some significant events as a cathedral in the coming weeks. I have been most impressed by the efficiency, workmanship and communications which made this possible. I have to say that I am delighted that the work could be contracted locally with yourselves. The organ has been back functioning fully to the satisfaction of the musicians on site. Please convey our appreciation and thanks to your engineers and all concerned with the project. Sincerely. Very. Rev. Richard Kilgour. MA BD Provost and Rector

Deebridge Electrical forms alliance with BARTEC VARNOST

Date: 18/07/2014

We are pleased to announce the Deebridge Electrical Engineers Ltd has signed a strategic alliance with BARTEC VARNOST of Slovenia to be their distributor for the supply of Standard Metric Motors, Standard EExd Motors, Pump Applications Motors (IP68) Special Solution Motors and Dust Ignition Proof Motors.

Deebridge Electrical Engineers Ltd was established in 1947. From the foundation to the present day offer onshore support for the repair and overhaul of electric motors, generators, alternators, control systems, gear boxes, pumps, HVAC, site services along with the supply, repair and recertification of EX Equipment.

BARTEC VARNOST was established in 1958. From the foundation to the present day they have been engaged in the development and production of explosion protected electrical devices. In 1997 the company became a member of the German holding corporation BARTEC who is now a full owner of the company. Today together with BARTEC, they are a leading European company in the field of development and production of explosion protected electrical devices.

Operations Director of Deebridge, Dave Marr stated, we are delighted to have formed this alliance with BARTEC VARNOST and to be bringing their innovative technologies and range of EX equipment to the North Sea market particularly the ATEX Certified NEMA range of explosion proof motors.

Dave added, we have already completed 2 major projects with Drilling Contractor customers who had numerous problems replacing UL Listed Explosion Proof Motors that needed to be replaced, both companies had offers to replace these machines with Standard ATEX Certified Metric frame motors. Clearly these offers posed numerous problems regarding significant mechanical structural alterations offshore to accommodate these frames, shaft drive changes and certification changes to be agreed with their insurers, the exercise was going to be a very time consuming and costly and did not fit in with the project timeframes.

Deebridge convened several meetings with these customers and working with BARTEC VARNOST design engineers we provided a solution of identical machines built in a NEMA Frame and PTB / ATEX certified delivered within 6 weeks, these machines are now installed and operational.

BARTEC (UK) Ltd Commercial Manager, Kim Scott added in the past 12 months BARTEC and Deebridge have established a good professional working relationship due to Dave and his teams technical expertise, enthusiasm and commitment to supply solutions to meet their customers’ needs. With our partnership, a strong market presence and a proven track record we are well placed to capitalise on future opportunities within hazardous areas.

Deebridge Awarded Contract to Supply Motors for the Brent Charlie Decommissioning

Date: 25/10/2013

Deebridge is working with Archer to support Shell’s decommissioning of the Brent Charlie platform. The contract with Archer involves the repair and replacement of motor equipment in order to re-activate the Brent Charlie drilling rig for well plugging and abandonment work.

The Brent field began production in 1975 and is famous for having provided a benchmark in crude pricing globally. The field has four fixed platforms which are now in varying stages of decommissioning. Brent Alpha has already ceased production, the Bravo and Delta platforms are due to follow in late 2014 and the Charlie platform will cease production last, scheduled for late 2015. Preparations on the Brent Charlie are already underway, with Archer holding the drilling, engineering and maintenance contract for all Brent platforms since 2004.

Deebridge is working with Archer and Shell to find the best motor solutions for the Charlie drilling rig, which has not been active for several years. The project involves repairing and rewinding a number motors which are too unique to be replaced, as well as sourcing new replacement motors where possible.

Dave Marr, Operations Director of Deebridge said ‘We are delighted to have been selected by Archer for this high profile project. The decommissioning of the Brent field is being followed with interest by many in the industry as the North Sea prepares for a significant increase in decommissioning activity in the coming decades. Deebridge has been supporting the Oil & Gas industry since before production at the Brent field began and we are glad to be a part of this historically significant project.’
