KKI’s Subsea operation continues to grow

Subsea choke and control valves continue to be a growth area for Brighouse-based KKI in 2012. Since the start of the year, the company has made further investment in new roles within the subsea engineering team and in its life of field support services.

Joining the existing subsea team are four new engineers: Barry Duke, Senior Design Engineer; Eddie Sheard, Graduate Engineer; Mark Gaskell, Project Engineer and Richard Hayes, Development Engineer. They are currently undergoing a comprehensive induction programme, during which they will shadow experienced engineers in a variety of functions around the company. Once this familiarisation process is complete, they will join the subsea team in supporting future projects.

Meanwhile, brand new subsea testing and project storage facilities are being installed in the company’s state-of-the-art aftercare operation. These additions enhance and support KKI’s lean manufacturing philosophy. In particular they will ensure that all subsea aftercare projects are managed efficiently and effectively – regardless of how many are underway at any one time.

This investment comes at a time when the company is busy not only fulfilling new subsea commissions for specialist applications, but also carrying out maintenance and upgrades on a number of subsea valves. In addition, API 6A accreditation is due to be formalised very soon, and the subsea team is rightly proud of the work they have done to attain the standard.

As a result of all this activity, the company is looking forward to a strong second half of the year, and is working hard to secure future commissions for the expanded subsea team to fulfil.
