From hot work zones to sub-zero undersea temperatures, from battering North Sea storms to transporting heavy hazardous loads – the energy and renewables industry demands the toughest of tarpaulins and covers to keep projects on track.
Being based in the Highlands of Scotland, where we’ve produced tailor-made tarpaulins for more than 35 years, our team at Tom Morrow Tarpaulins know exactly what it takes to make protective and containment coverings that stand up to the harsh, and sometimes brutal, exigencies of the energy sector.
When it comes to designing, manufacturing and supplying tarpaulin products to the oil, gas and renewables energy we know that failure is not an option. If our products don’t come up to scratch valuable machinery and equipment – and even lives – could be put at risk.
It’s a responsibility we are bear with confidence, because we know we provide the best crafted products fabricated with unbeatable materials by our expert team.
Like all our tarpaulin products, we custom-make tarpaulins, covers and containers for the energy sector to order, according to the client’s specifications. After close consultation we’re happy to take on and meet any challenge and find solutions no matter how complex the situation or how inhospitable the environment.
Some of the more regular commissions we receive for bespoke products in the energy and renewables sector in Scotland and around the world listed below.
Probably the most frequently stipulated requirement is for customised snug fitting covers to protect valuable machinery from the elements and salt water. We can add company branding and hi-vis HSE livery to our custom heavy duty PVC products too.
Our heavy-duty watertight PVC wind turbine end covers are designed and manufactured to withstand the demands of transportation and long-term storage of the towers, nacelles and blades of these cumbersome devices when they are vulnerable to damage from the elements and sea air.
