Our offices cover 5,000 m² and are located next to our workshop. We have a full in-house service (a unique combination of project management, engineering, fabrication, procurement, QA/QC and all supporting services). We have 200+ employees and additional contract staff depending on the work load.
The Geldof fabrication area covers 60,000 m² with crane service, with the workshops accounting for 20,000 m² of that space. We are fully equipped to handle all grades of carbon and stainless steel, heat resistant and low temperature materials, special alloys, and clad and weld overlaid materials such as Inconel, Monel and Hastelloy. The preparation bays have conventional and CNC machining equipment installed and state-of-the-art machinery for flame cutting, rolling, pressing and weld preparations of plates. The large assembly bays are equipped with powerful overhead cranes, turntables and rotators and are efficiently organized in dedicated job shops. The most suitable welding techniques and equipment are employed for every weld. SAW, GMAW, FCAW, TIG, GTAW, PAW, ESW and SMAW are familiar techniques for Geldof’s skilled work force. The integrated mechanical engineering, material management, quality control and state-of-the-art surface treatment and paint shop guarantee a full in-house service to the highest standards.
Subassemblies, pre mounted skid built units or finished items can be completely fabricated off-site (on our premises or elsewhere) and shipped for simple installation at the job site.
The off-site construction of storage tanks, in Geldof’s controlled work environment, can offer numerous advantages:
- Reduced delivery time
- Limited interference with normal site activities
- Guaranteed performance in delivery, quality and safety, meaning durable solutions using sustainable methods
- Economic gains in terms of reduced CAPEX and risk
Geldof disposes of a highly competent and powerful site organization equipped with the most advanced erection and assembly tools.
Our own teams of site management staff and skilled labor can be strengthened by our strategic partnerships, key supplier relations and local subcontractors.
Geldof is based in Harelbeke, in western Belgium. Geldof’s facilities are located alongside the Leie River with direct access to the port of Ghent, Antwerp and other seaports.
