Signs Express (Falkirk) have completed the manufacture and installation of 124 sign panels for Burntisland Fabrications Ltd (BiFab). The signs for this highly prestigious project are used on the company’s 30 off-shore wind farms.
Taking into account the extreme environment conditions the signs will have to endure, the Signs Express team spent a lot of time working with BiFab to source the best products to meet with their specifications. Each panel measures 4000 x 1000mm and were produced on 3mm marine grade aluminium, faced with 3M high intensity reflective sheeting and 3M graphic film text. Even the fixings systems took careful consideration due to the adverse weather conditions the signs face.
BiFab currently operate 3 fabrication facilities in Scotland; Burntisland in Fife targeting oil & gas projects, Arnish on the Isle of Lewis which deals with renewable energy projects such as wave and current and Methill in Fife which also targets the renewable energy but specifies on wind energy. When complete, the wind farms will generate up to 500 gigawatt hours of electricity every year.
