Owners and operators of offshore installations invest significant time and resource in order to safeguard the continued operation and production of existing assets. Pinnacle’s energy team have built a sound base of expertise and experience in dealing with the challenges of brownfield projects, in particular, the ageing assets within the Southern North Sea – many of which date back to the 1960’s and 70’s.
Ensuring the safety of personnel and environment
Safety of personnel and the environment are and will remain the over-riding highest priority. An integral part of achieving this is to maintain safe access across all offshore installations.
Combined with regular structural engineering reports Pinnacle provides an integral tool in enabling appropriate repairs and modifications to be undertaken in a planned process, thereby avoiding unplanned production holds and shut downs. Regular structural inspections also form a vital tool in managing safety of personnel, assets and the environment.
Engineering design work
At Pinnacle, we regularly carry out structural engineering design work such as:
- New staircases

Along with structural engineering design, Pinnacle produce detailed general arrangements, as well as detailed fabrication drawings, specification and onshore and offshore inspection of structural strengthening, alteration and repair works.
