JBS Fabrication Ltd is our leading engineering solutions & fabrication division specialising in the structural & pipework fabrication in a range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials to UK & Worldwide Codes & Standards.
Our independent machining, piping and structural steel fabrication workshops accommodate an extensive range of materials and processes.
The breadth and depth of completed contracts has elevated JBS to an industry leader for repair order, minor modification, metal fabrication services, and finite element analysis (FEA).
We use the best available technology, a dynamic, flexible approach, and our wealth of experience in both structural fabrication and design engineering, to ensure a strong track record backed by a flexible competitive commercial model.
JBS Fabrication Ltd provide qualified welding, fabrication installation & commissioning engineers globally with experience on jack-ups, FPSOs, Platforms, various drilling rigs and onshore facilities. We have grown from working in the North Sea to doing jobs all over the world.
JBS carries out OEM equipment installation along with repairs and modifications for the Energy, Space, Defence and Renewable industries, often mobilising personnel and equipment at short notice.
With the backing of our onshore engineering and fabrication services, the division can provide impeccably integrated jobs from design to delivery to meet the project’s needs.

- Structured Steel Fabrication
- Electrical Engineering Mechanical Design
- Offshore Welding, Fabrication & Repair
- Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
- Stainless Steel Fabrication
- SuperDuplex Piping
- Carbon Steel Piping Fabrication & Modification
- Compex Electrical, Hydraulic & Instrumentation Installation
Environmental Recovery System (ERS)
JBS manufacture the ERS system for sale or lease, we also provide operation and maintenance services. The objective of the ERS fluid treatment system is to enhance the environmental profile and reduce the volume of waste materials at source. ERS minimises the waste by returning the treated water back to the environment. At the same time ERS recycles the solids and oil for re-use.
ERS is designed to separate the solids from the water and oil, pot ale, waste sludge, etc. Solids will be left as a powder for reuse or landfill recreation. With the contaminents removed the water is ready for safe disposal. Examples for the ERS include:
Whisky Industry – productively dewaters both the solid and liquid waste streams from the distillery process. The solids fraction, draff, generally contains up to 70% water and is processed and turned into animal feed and or food grade proteins. The liquid pot ale on the other hand, contains up to 95% water, this is processed to remove the water content to allow for safe environmental discharge.
Waste Water Industry – productively dewaters the residue known as ‘sludge cake’ to allow the water to undergo further treatment for reuse or discharge. The solids fraction (generally 18-35%) is processed and turned into pellet shaped granular fuel. This process results in renewable energy generation, helping to shape a lower carbon future.
Aquaculture Industry – ERS provides a method to process the waste products in an environmentally friendly way. ERS productively separates oily slops to recover valuable by-products including reusable oil, inert solids and clean water.
Oil & Gas Industry – designed to process the waste streams from drilling activities in an environmentally friendly way. ERS productively separates oily slops to recover valuable by-products including: • Reusable oil – for use in rig mud systems or as process fuel • Inert solids – for use in the construction industry and/or compliant disposal • Clean water – for disposal to onshore sewage systems or to sea.
