John Bell Pipeline & Ocean Kinetics partnership to serve Shetland Isles Aug 24 2015 | John Bell Pipeline Equipment Co Ltd

Aberdeenshire based piping and access equipment specialists John Bell Pipeline Equipment Co Ltd have further strengthened their client support on the Shetland Isles by announcing a supply partnership with Ocean Kinetics.

The Shetland based marine engineering company have an extensive track record in Oil & Gas, Renewables, Fishing & Agriculture, Marine Works and Marine Salvage. John Bell Pipeline supply the full product scope of Linepipe, Fittings, Flanges, Valves, Structural Hollow Sections and Core6 GRP to a variety of market sectors in Shetland through Ocean Kinetics. Supply projects include Oil & Gas terminals at Sullom Voe and Laggan Tormore, Fish-farming and Marine Salvage as well as Marine Works and Fabrication projects that Ocean Kinetics undertake on a regular basis.

Servicing the Oil & Gas industry for 40 years, John Bell Pipeline specialise in holding large stocks available for immediate delivery from the North East of Scotland. In 2006 John Bell Pipeline began stocking GRP grating, a fibreglass reinforced plastic material which can be used as an alternative to steel. Supplying and fabricating Core6 GRP from their custom built fabrication facility in Aberdeenshire has given the company opportunities to supply outside the Oil & Gas industry into the Fish-farming, Food & Beverage and Marine industries.

Core6 products have the benefit of being non-corrosive, lightweight and non-slip which make them suitable for industries where corrosion and slips trips and falls are a high risk to production.

Mark Skinner, managing director of John Bell Pipeline commented “This exciting partnership means that the full range of our product scope will be available through Ocean Kinetics Ltd ensuring the right products are kept in-stock on the Island to meet our clients demands”.

Derek Leask, Business Development Manager at Ocean Kinetics commented “We are a leading employer in Lerwick with operations in many of the key plants on Shetland. Our new partnership with John Bell Pipeline means Ocean Kinetics are able to offer an increased volume to our local client base. On top of this, with our fabrication and installation capabilities, this partnership will add significant value to our customer service and result in shorter lead times on project delivery.

John Bell Pipeline will be launching the partnership at the Ocean Kinetics open day on August 29 from their facility at the Port Business Park in Gremista, Shetland. Ocean Kinetics have invited suppliers to promote their products and services as well as inviting clients and potential clients to see the impressive facility and learn more about how Ocean Kinetics can service their requirements.
