The Ullrigg Drilling and Well Centre has a well equipped machine shop. With competent inhouse mechanics and engineers we can offer very short delivery times for building up test facilities and equipment. Inhouse competence and short distance to local equipment and material suppliers are key factors that reduce the overall project costs.

The main objectives for the work shop are to build, commission and maintain test equipment for all the test facilities at IRIS, but we are flexible and offer necessary modifications to customer supplied equipment and tools.

Some of the available machinery:
  • Several lathes in various sizes, up to: 
    • turn lenght                                             2800mm
    • centre height                                            315mm
    • stem ID                                                        70mm
