Altaire - Additional RSW compressor VFD installation

After twice suffering failure of an ABB variable speed drive running one of two compressors for the vessels refrigerated seawater plant, a spare unit was requested to be installed in such a way that it could be quickly and easily connected in place of either existing drive in the event of failure whilst at sea. L&M carried out the installation of the third 500A VFD and an arrangement of changeover switches to allow either existing drive to be replaced and the control circuits to be interfaced. Protective covers were fabricated for all lower level cable ladders utilising the companies recently purhased 125ton 4m cnc press brake.

Shetland Aerogenerators - V47 Blade refurbishment

L&M Engineering, in conjunction with Wind Turbine Services (UK) Ltd and Shetland Composites Ltd, undertook the removal, refurbishment and refitting of the blades on three Vestas V47 turbines at the Burradale windfarm. The blade bearings and lightning coductors were replaced and repairs made to the fibreglass structure before a protective coating was applied to the blades.

North Atlantic Shellfish - Factory Refurbishment

L&M Engineering worked closely with North Atlantic Shellfish to develop the specification for a control system to integrate all the new machinery in their upgraded mussel processing facility. L&M then went on to design and manufacture the control panels and complete the electrical installation work on site. The system gives increased productivity by ease of use (1 touch, staged starting of the various production zones) and automation of product throughput levels, while meeting all safety requirements and taking consideration of energy efficiency.
