We take a close up look at Regional Economic Development (RED) grant recipient Integrity Engineering Solutions, which is among the companies working globally from the South West. Lifestyle is one of the attractions for the Dunsborough based engineering firm…
From its base in the coastal town of Dunsborough, a niche engineering consulting firm with specialist knowledge is quietly solving problems for some of the world’s biggest companies.
Clients dispersed around the globe are calling on the expertise of Integrity Engineering Solutions when they need help getting to the bottom of potentially catastrophic issues.
For Managing Director and Principal Mechanical Engineer Warren Brown, it’s not only about solving problems no one else can. It’s also the ability to make a difference through contributing to safe workplaces and environments.
Dr Brown and his team determine the risk, identify the problem and decide a solution – before a leaking bolted joint, a corroded pipe or crack in equipment can cause harm.
The cutting-edge engineering analysis techniques used by the consulting firm ensures the integrity of fixed assets for clients across a range of industries including renewable energy, oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, minerals processing and mining.
They also develop software that performs calculations for bolted joints and are commencing full scale commercialization of a load indicating bolt system (RT-Bolt).
With the support of a Regional Economic Development (RED) Grant through the South West Development Commission, the consulting firm is set to expand its offerings further.
IES will develop the JOINTEGRITY Bolted Joint Quality Assurance System.
“The software we have at the moment does calculations,” Dr Brown said.
“What we want to do is to take it from calculations to then also cover quality assurance and bolted joint assembly in order to address the full life cycle of bolted joint integrity. The RED grant is greatly helping with the first phase of the planned software development.
“You don’t expect to come to Dunsborough and find a world leading specialist company.
“It’s a nice place to live and you can get a lot more from your life here. Since you don’t have to commute, you spend less time in traffic and more time enjoying life.”
We’re pleased to support business growth and innovation in the South West through the RED Grants.
