The quayside facility allows for creation of large scale composite components such as subsea and wellhead protection, wave energy structures and manifold covers for the offshore energy sector.

 Balmoral already provides protection products (fatigue, impact and abrasion), buoyancy (mooring and cable) and tethering solutions (clamps) to the offshore wind sector. The new manufacturing site at the Port of Montrose will allow the company to deliver its large advanced composite products direct from shore to ship as the sector expands in the waters off the coast of Scotland and further afield.
