Join us on Tuesday 12 March 2024, 10am – 1pm, for an opportunity to share common challenges, better understand how fellow member companies are continuously improving their business, hear more about Malin Group, marine specialists, providing end to end solutions for the industry, from feasibility studies and consultancy, through design, fabrication and specialist welding, to transportation, mobilisation and decommissioning. With a heritage dating back 125 years, we have worked on a number of iconic projects – from the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier, and big blue golf ball, to latterly HMS Glasgow, Hinkley point C and the Tay Whale.

Situated at the iconic South Rotunda building, the session will start with an informal tour of their building, learning about its heritage and how this ties into their own transportation history, before coming to the gallery, which provides 360° views of the city. Here they will have a short welcome on the group, followed by two focused case studies:

Chris Dunn, Managing Director and Jonathan Brown, Technical Director, both of Malin Marine Consultants, will be shining a spotlight on to the future of fabrication within (and beyond) Scotland. With high fabrication expectations surrounding the offshore renewables sector, teamed with the already sizeable defence, oil and gas, and nuclear needs, the clear mismatch between supply and demand with regards the existing infrastructure will be investigated. Jonathan will be drawing on his recent white paper in this area, before turning attention to the planned Scottish Marine Technology Park which aims to play a part in the need to expand and improve the current facilities open to industry. This will be followed by a consideration of new means and methods, beyond infrastructure alone. Here Chris Dunn, who successfully led in the delivery of MariLight, alongside partners NMIS, Lloyds Register, Altair Engineering and BAE Systems, will discuss additive manufacturing, lightweighting and the potential new technologies have, not only in reducing costs and materials, but also in reimagining design principles and supporting circular economies as we move forward.

James Bowie, Engineering Diector of Malin Abram will then turn attention to transportation, and the operations involved in moving vessels, and large complex cargo by sea. Explaining what is involved in roll out and float off operations, he will cover the benefits of this type of operation over the dynamic launches of days gone by, as well as featuring some recently delivered projects including HMS Glasgow. This will be followed by a consideration of lessons learned for sectors outwith defence, to renewables, nuclear, tidal and beyond.

Members will then be invited to ask any questions of speakers, whilst hosting an informal networking session over lunch.
