Production Begins at Appomattox
The Appomattox floating oil production system operated by Shell started production on Thursday 17th May, several months ahead of schedule. The development is a joint venture between Shell (79%) and CNOOC (21%) and is one of the largest projects to have recently launched in the Gulf of Mexico. The platform is expected to produce 175,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day from its position 80 miles southeast of the Louisiana coastline. Wozair manufactured a range of dampers and spares and offered various support services for Appomattox from September 2015 to December 2016, all of which were manufactured at their US facility in Houston, Texas. The factory, which opened in 2006, was one of four new manufacturing facilities that formed part of an international expansion by Wozair, who has since acquired two new businesses in the UK. Last year, Shell announced a new discovery near Appomattox that can be further drilled and developed through connections to the platform called the Dover discovery, which will prevent the need to build a new platform in the future. Since approving Appomattox in 2015, Shell has said that it achieved cost reductions of 40% as part of their commitment to drive down costs through efficiency improvements during execution. Wozair USA are pleased to have been part of the cost-saving project that has since led to new discoveries in the first large-scale production off the Gulf of Mexico. Photo Credit : Shellread more

Time Lapse – Louvres Installation
The Veotec Group are a UK based subsidiary of The Wozair Group with a strong presence in the USA. Here is a 10-minute time lapse of the Veotec Americas team installing their ESFH Fluid Heated Louvres at Augsburg University, Minnesota. SEFH fluid heated air intake louvers combine the superior water removal efficiency of Veotec SE1 vane separators with heat exchanger technology to de-ice the inlet and heat or chill the air stream. The anti-icing properties effectively removes snow, ice, hoarfrost, drift, fog, mist, and rain from the air stream. Snow bounces off and through most cold louvers, hoods, and drift eliminators until it finally builds up on the filters or on the eliminator. Veotec SEFH fluid heated louvers melt snow and prevent icing. Snow flakes instantly melt into water droplets where we effectively drain the coalesced droplets away. SEFH fluid heated louvers are optimally spaced for first stage water removal for inlets and filtration systems so there is no need for pre-filtration like normal coils. In many cases these louvers can be bolted in place of hoods. If required, the louvers can be sized to fit inside of most hoods. Inlets already using coils can benefit from an added boost in performance.read more
Oil Flows from Clair Ridge
Oil from BP’s major Clair Ridge development which is expected to produce for the next four decades begun flowing on the 19th November. The Clair field was discovered in 1977 and is estimated to contain 7 billion barrels of oil and gas. The export has already been increased from 8,000 barrels to 19,000 barrels per day with a further flowline expected to be onstream hopefully in December.

New Temporary Building
New temporary building provides more testing space at Wozair.
Wozair has constructed a new temporary building situated in the lower section of the rear yard in Gillingham, following demand for more space after securing a large project. After a competitive tendering process, Warwickshire based Smart Space were appointed to build the temporary facility at the head offices, which now provides additional space for testing large Air Handling Units (AHU’s). AHU’s are designed to provide conditioned air that is filtered, cooled, heated, humidified or dehumidified according to customer requirements. Each unit must go through rigorous testing before it is packed and shipped to the client. Previously, the workshop had capacity for testing only one unit at a time. With the addition of the temporary building multiple units can now be tested simultaneously, resulting in shorter lead times. Wozair are thrilled to have had the option to extend their factory space to meet growing demand. Smart Space designed the 30m x 15m structure which stands 6m tall with a sloped roof providing extra height. The independently owned and British based company employs over 30 staff working closely with their customers to ensure all regulatory standards are met. Wozair initially planned to retain the unit for 3 months to assist with current projects; however, if demand for more space continues this may be extended.read more

BTA for the Jules Horowitz Reactor
Wozair Limited have been selected to manufacture Blast Protection Dampers for the Jules Horowitz Reactor (RHJ) which is currently under construction at Cadarache in Southern France. The RJH is a Material Test Reactor (MTR) named after the 20th century French nuclear scientist Jules Horowitz and is expected to begin operation in 2021. The reactors construction was recommended by ESFRI as a replacement for the European Union’s existing materials testing reactors, which were all built in the 1960’s, and are expected to reach the end of their service lives by 2020. Blast Tube Array (BTA) will be provided for the programme in both single and modular sizes of up to 2440W/1300H and 2500W/1000H. The dampers are located on the MVK and MVL backup networks between the external AHU and between the exhaust fans and external fans. Blast systems will also be included on the fresh air ducting and exhaust of cooling units EIS2. The Wozair BTA is a technical revolution in blast protection, addressing several technical challenges whilst providing improved safety and protection.

Wozair (USA) Accreditation
Wozair receive Buy American and Buy American accreditation at their USA facility in March this year
Wozair are delighted to have received Buy America and Buy American accreditation in March this year at their USA facility, enabling them to bid and win their first project under this scheme for designing and manufacturing of bespoke heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) components for the Staten Island ferries in New York City. The project consists of manufacturing a range of Fire Dampers, Blast Dampers and Control Dampers for 3 x 320ft vessels. The compliance has created a host of opportunities for the company who also have manufacturing facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, the USA as well as their primary base in the UK. The Buy America Act is the name for a group of domestic content restrictions that attach to specific funds administered by the American Department of Transportation (DOT) and is part of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982. Separate and distinct from the Buy America Act is the Buy American Act, passed in congress in 1933 which only applies to “federal” procurement. It does not apply to DOT funded state/local projects because, while the source of the money for those projects is federal, such purchases are not made directly by the federal government. Both Acts seek to increase transparency and ensure federal agencies prioritise purchase of American-made goods in compliance with the existing law. It enables Wozair to bid for jobs directly on the US government portal. The penalties for non-compliance are serious and include civil or criminal False Claims Act Violations, suspension or debarment. Wozair are currently bidding for a number of exciting projects under the legislation which they are hoping to win and expand their client portfolio.read more

Wozair has completed its latest project for the Arabian Gulf with the delivery of a Package Air Conditioner Unit (PACU) for a Total platform, a first for the international company. This exciting first major project with Total represents many more exciting things to come for Wozair, with the opportunity for many more units of this type in the future. The first unit was delivered to Abu Dhabi and built to exact specifications and requirements supplied by Total to withstand the extreme conditions that offshore platforms endure in the Middle East, including high temperature and humidity in a salt-laden atmosphere. These conditions would see other supplier’s standard units failing to achieve their required task of supplying clean, conditioned air. The unit was fully painted and designed to withstand +50°C and 100% humidity. Total, as a global integrated energy producer and supplier, knew that Wozair would be the ideal fit for the design of this unit. Total focus on delivering economic, social and environmental benefits with their products across 130 countries worldwide. This commitment was the reason that Total knew Wozair was the best fit for the job and was sure to provide something that not only worked but exceeded expectations. Chris Cherrington, Commercial Director, Wozair, says: "Our company was chosen to complete this project thanks to our reputation for delivering high-quality units that are designed to last, something we have been doing within this region for the past 20 plus years. We think this latest project further cements that we're willing to go the extra mile to achieve our client's goals and produce something that works every time. Even with the challenging conditions that our unit will face, we're more than confident that it can do the job – high-integrity HVAC is what we do." As a privately owned international HVAC equipment manufacturer, Wozair specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of a variety of HVAC products, including heavy-duty heating, ventilating and air conditioning products. They employ a full-time, highly skilled team to develop new products and improved systems to ensure they're always on the leading edge of the market while remaining fully compliant with all certifications and international requirements.
