LOCATED at the mouth of the River Tyne, McNulty Offshore Construction Limited is a leading fabricator in both the offshore oil and gas and the developing renewable energy sectors.

Originally a small Stevedore company, McNulty quickly developed into an offshore construction company to meet the needs of the booming North Sea oil industry.

From the fabrication of small pipe spools, to the fabrication of complete topsides for floating production storage and offloading vessels, McNulty has demonstrated that it can meet the needs of a diverse portfolio of clients.

The firm is currently progressing a 600- tonne process module and 1,750 tonnes of subsea structures, as well as the integration of a 120-man living quarters. It currently employs over 600 personnel in different trades and support staff on existing projects both in its South Shields facility and offshore.

Having consolidated a strong position as a leading fabricator in the oil and gas sector, McNulty has become an established name within the growing renewable energy sector.

McNulty is currently involved in the design and build of two major offshore substations which will be located in the Greater Gabbard and Lincs wind farms. In addition to the topsides work, McNulty has recently completed its second jacket structure and both are now successfully installed.

McNulty Offshore has recently been awarded a project to supply a demonstrator platform which will be installed off the coast of Blyth. This platform will monitor the environment both above and below the sea and be the main operational platform for the testing of the new generation of wind turbines.

McNulty prides itself on its excellent safety record. Safety initiatives are rolled out in conjunction with each project and this ensures that safety standards are foremost in everyone’s minds having achieved over 720,000 man hours of safe working in 2010. McNulty Offshore holds the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Gold Award and is committed to achieving the highest standards of Health and Safety.

McNulty currently holds ISO9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification and is continually striving to improve existing systems.

McNulty Offshore also supplies labour and equipment to support works offshore. This enables McNulty to offer a complete package from original design through to commissioning and completion.

With the assistance of local businesses and its skilled workforce, McNulty has successfully embraced the emerging renewable market whilst maintaining the core business of oil and gas fabrication and looks forward to future challenges.
