SC Innovation brand launches at Advanced Engineering delivering high spec equipment for challenging environments03-11-2015
The new SC Innovation brand is being launched at Advanced Engineering to offer cross sector customers high specification equipment for challenging environments and value-added Engineering Services. At the show SC Innovation is highlighting its proven capability on projects ranging from the RNLI Lifeboat Launch & Recovery System to Bloodhound’s high performance all-terrain support vehicles.
SC Innovation is the new brand for delivering engineering solutions to non-defence customers of SC Group, formerly known as Supacat. In September the company rebranded under a new SC identity take the company forward in its expansion into new markets and provide a clear customer focus for its products. The Supacat name remains in place for the company’s defence business.
The company had outgrown its brand by successfully applying its rugged engineering expertise in high mobility vehicles, notably `Jackal` operated by British Forces in Afghanistan, to solving high specification engineering challenges in adjacent sectors. The `springboard` has been the Lifeboat Launch & Recovery System, developed with the RNLI to transport the 18 tonne Shannon Class over the British Isles’ most demanding beaches.
Engineering Services form part of SC Innovation’s offering to customers and the RNLI project demonstrates the company’s comprehensive engineering capabilities; from innovative design to systems integration, modelling, trials and prototype development through to full production.
Also being showcased at Advanced Engineering are the BOLT 2 wave energy converter, which was engineered and built for Fred Olsen and the 6×6 High Mobility Transport support vehicles for The Bloodhound Project. The SMV 24 multi-purpose vessel highlights the company’s fresh thinking and is a new type of flexible support craft conceived to service the marine industry, including offshore wind farms. The first SMV 24 secured James Fisher Marine Services as the launch customer and has since undertaken a wide range of high value maintenance and operational roles.
“Over the last decade the company has become one of the world’s leading companies in developing bespoke handling and support equipment, both mobile and static, to operate in the harshest of environments, from marine to renewables, mineral exploration, oil & gas and emergency service vehicles, where high performance, reliability and safety are paramount”, said Joe Wilcox, Head of SC Innovation.
