Marine Production Facilities

Our experts have been providing blast and paint solutions to international marine customers for five decades.

Airblast AFC is able to produce world-class blast and paint facilities for leading manufacturers in ship and submarine building, gas and oil component manufacturing, and offshore wind energy.

Marine Conditions

Careful maintenance is crucial at sea, where tough conditions have a highly detrimental effect on marine structures and equipment. Valuable assets at sea are vulnerable to material degradation, flash rust, paint blistering, and delamination.

As the sophistication of marine coatings increases, so too does the demand placed on surface preparation. All our marine blast and paint facilities incorporate climate and humidity controls. These enable accurate environment management for faster production times and higher quality results.

The sophistication of marine coatings continues to increase, which places increasing demands on the quality of your surface preparation. That’s why our marine blast and paint facilities incorporate climate and humidity controls, enabling accurate environment management for faster production times and higher quality results.

Our experts have created marine facilities for the UK, USA, Canada, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Each facility is delivered to the highest technical standards and is supported by our first-class service.

Offshore Wind

Airblast AFC experts have experience in designing and building large, environmentally controlled facilities for leading offshore wind turbine blade manufacturers. Our largest to date accommodates a 260’ long turbine blade and utilizes an advanced air recirculation system to meet the exacting requirements of the paint specification. The facility is fitted out to work both as a paint spray facility and a cure facility.

Marine Vessel Blasting and Coating

Airblast AFC also offers facilities for the marine transportation industry. These feature climate-and temperature-controlled rooms that are ideal for both blasting and painting. These facilities can be supplied with a rapid recovery elevator capable of moving up to 30 tons of metallic abrasive every hour. They also feature a vacuum recovery system for blasting within vessel sections, as well as ventilation and climate control equipment. Airblast AFC can design and build these climatically controlled blast and paint rooms for the marine, oil, and gas industries.
