Manufacture, Assembly and Testing

The manufacture, assembly and testing of our Pressure Vessels is carried out at KW Designed Solutions premises in the UK.  Our team of electro-mechanical engineers possess a wide range of specialist skills and the tooling required to build and test the various types of equipment on offer.  Advanced production and project management systems ensure we supply right first time, on time whilst also helping us to maintain our ISO 9001 accreditation.

Installation and Commissioning

Our team of certified engineers plan and organise all relevant services and activities required for the installation of KW Designed Solutions equipment, ensuring that the work is carried out safely and efficiently.  We work closely with specialist machine moving sub-contractors for the initial positioning and siting of heavier pieces of equipment.  Once sited, our engineers will complete the installation and commissioning of the equipment by conducting a final Site Acceptance Test (SAT) before the equipment is finally signed off by the customer. (More)
