Fabrication is part of our integrated engineering and construction services business model. BlackHole Engineering currently offers fabrication services through a vast network of subcontractor fabricators in countries such as USA, Canada, Italy, India and China.
Our short to medium-term goal is to build an ultra-modern ASME Section VIII Certified fabrication shop near Winneba in the Central Region of Ghana to fabricate a diverse range of pressure vessels and piping, storage tanks, structural steels among others to serve the global market. With our own fabrication facility shall ensure that work is completed on time, within a controlled environment.
Proposed BlackHole Engineering Fabrication Facilities & Office Complex
The fabrication shop shall be fitted with state of the art equipment to deliver high quality and exceptional precision for our projects. The equipment shall include
- CNC Plasma Profile Cutter
- NC Rolling/Bender Machine
- CNC Portable 5-Axis Plasma Profile Cutter
- NC Head Dishing & Flanging Set-up
- CNC Pipe Cutter & Beveller
The fabrication facility shall be designed to produce
Pressure vessels : to ASME U, U2, and UM Requirements.: Up to 3 m in diameter, up to 40 m in length, up to 30 mm in thickness, and up to 120 t (120,000 kg) in weight.
Material of construction (MOC) shall be carbon steel, stainless steel and other alloys.
Heat exchangers : built in the accordance with ASME Code, Section VIII, Div. I, Div. 2, and TEMA.
Piping : built in accordance with ASME B31.X range of standards with automated welding processes.
Structural : for fabricating skids, pipe racks, platforms, ladders, vessel internals, etc.
Insulation : when required for each equipment. Insulations are applied within our facilities while insulation of final connections is done onsite.
Electrical : wiring to skid edge junction boxes, electrical paneling, etc.
The fabrication facility shall also include an enclosed sandblasting and coating as well as heat treatment booths to cater for diverse applications.
Craftsmanship is at the core of what we do at BlackHole Engineering. So, our fabrication team include people who have a precision-driven attitude and an unrelenting penchant for creating perfect products. They are motivated by mastery of their crafts, immerse themselves and maintain a sharp focus in their work and believe in the end-value of our projects and that is why we deliver beyond the expectations of our clients. This fit very well into the “our-people and our-technology” approach which is geared at delivering unmatched value to our clients.
The Production Team
- Pipe Fitters
- Structural Fitters
- General Labourers
All work shall be monitored by our own Quality Control (QC) inspectors.
