Marine & Offshore

Hutchinson Stop-choc is a specialist in the design and manufacture of mounts and mountings for use on offshore gas and oil rigs. This includes customised mounts which we design and build in-house for :

  • Accommodation Modules
  • Turbine Generators
  • Compressors
  • Propulsion Systems and Pumps.

We often design and manufacture mounts specifically to withstand extremes of temperature and to prevent contamination from fluids.

We can provide all-metal mounts, unaffected by contamination and providing extreme dampening capabilities. All metal mounts have no contribution to toxic emissions or fire risk. Our specialised metal mounts offer the benefit of a long life and low maintenance cycle and work well in extremes of temperature.

Using a unique all-metal resilient cushion to provide vibration isolation, and a sliding mechanism to allow for thermal expansion and structural movement, the design offers excellent isolation of gas turbine generators and rotating machinery. An alternative version of this system is also used for the isolation of accommodation modules.

We provide solutions to the most demanding of vibration and noise problems and carry out extensive finite element analysis on our products, providing you with the assurance that our mounts will deliver results you can depend upon.
