Ian Griffiths, Global Marine Systems


Whatever the challenge, be it assessing fitness-for-purpose of a field component, establishing the root cause of a crane failure, designing a power cable, or dissecting a failed component, we pride ourselves in providing the critical technical information in a clear and comprehensive manner. Our excellent reputation has been forged through many years of service to our clients, providing conclusions and recommendations which give valuable insight and allow effective next steps to be planned.


Risk Assessment

BPP-TECH have extensive experience in providing qualitative and quantitative risk assessment services to support the owners of valuable assets. Applying the diverse forensic and testing experience of our engineers to “close the loop”, brings the lessons learnt to front-end design and operational procedures. This approach brings improved reliability of assets and avoids repeat incidents. FMEA, FTA and HAZOP techniques are used to profile risks systematically. Proactive or observational onsite visits can be carried out.


ABAQUS™ and OrcaFlex™ are tools our experienced engineers use to carry out analyses on a wide range of physical systems. 3D non-linear time-domain finite element capability is used to predict the global response of complex systems. e.g. fatigue limit state analyses, ultimate limit state analyses and installation analyses are routinely carried out. We analyse a wide range of components and equipment under environmental loads and externally imposed motions to give owners and users the comfort of reduced risk and increased certainty.


Workshop/Laboratory Investigation

In-depth investigation of failed components, prototype testing of innovative designs, the BPP workshop/laboratory is available for use. The fully equipped facility provides a flexible and cost effective resource for clients’ projects. Our engineers’ practical expertise can be utilised in this managed and safety controlled facility.

Component Delivery Management

Critical stages of component manufacture require engineers with the detailed knowledge of specifications, design and applications. BPP-TECH mobilises engineers with the knowledge and experience to be your eyes and ears during manufacture. Your team working with BPP engineers and inspectors will ensure cost effective delivery of your equipment to specification, to the required quality and on schedule.

Increasingly, our clients benefit from using our cost-effective modes of service delivery through web based tools and portals. These can meet the diverse needs of our clients e.g. by deploying integrated virtual teams, using time-sliced accounting, point of sale client representation or agency representation. These delivery modes allow our clients to get the most out of our people and expertise.


The Virtual Team Environment

Clients can effectively have their own multi-skilled, virtual engineering, technical and IT departments by integrating BPP-TECH’s expertise and people into their organisation as a virtual web based team. This can be achieved at a surprisingly low cost.


Time Sliced Service Delivery

Few organisations can afford to keep specialist staff employed full time and use them only part-time. We can offer engineering, technical and IT expertise to clients both physically and via the web on a ‘time sliced’ and pay as you use basis. The aim is to reduce cost and yet give a more wide-ranging technical support service.


Multi-Site Point of Sale Presence

BPP-TECH’s UK and USA presence is available to clients as a basis for multi-site “point of sale” presence through provision of knowledgeable senior engineers, either badged as BPP-TECH staff or badged as the client’s own staff. Our head office in the City of London is particularly suited to support a point of sale presence for financial, insurance and legal services to The City.


Agency and Purchasing Support Services

Our virtual teaming, time sliced mode of service delivery, combined with our physical offices in the UK and USA, are well suited to provide cost effective agency and purchasing support, for both service and manufacturing companies.

BPP-TECH’s traditional modes of delivery of our consultancy services remain available. Tell us your requirements by submitting the form at the bottom of this page. We will offer a cost-effective solution and a mode of delivery which suits you.
