One Peterson Pipework - Surface Preparation & Coating

Surface preparation and coating for industry-leading Energy Logistics company.


One Peterson




Shetland Islands


Malakoff were appointed by One Peterson to carry out the blasting and painting of pipework and valves on the Greenhead base, Lerwick.

Work Scope:


In addition to other works (replacement of valves, fabrication and installation of spools and fabrication and installation of pipework supports), this involved the mobilization of our vapour blasting equipment and well trained, experienced operators to site, to carry out in-situ blasting and painting.  

Due to the requirement for pipework preparation in-situ, the Graco Ecoquip 2 vapour blasting unit was proposed.  This innovative technology can blast at pressure ranging from 30-175 PSI and generates 92% less airborne dust than dry blasting.  This results in a much cleaner and safer operation, especially for situations where work must be carried out onsite.

A full surface coating quality pack was produced for the client.

Surface Preparation & Painting included:
