Rolls Royce deal secured

A WA engineering company has sewn up a five year deal with Rolls Royce worth at least $20 million over the next two years and potentially up to $125 million.

Barclay Engineering, which specialises in noise pollution control, is creating acoustic enclosures for Rolls Royce Industrial Power Systems.

Barclay managing director and major shareholder Terry Barclay said his company would be supplying up to six Trent gas turbine acoustic enclosures this year with fifteen enclosures to be supplied next year.

Each acoustic enclosure is worth around $1 million.

The deal is the culmination of two and a half years of negotiation.

Mr Barclay said his company’s design and construction approach helped it beat the other ten companies that pitched for the deal.

Barclay will manufacture the enclosures in kit form in WA and ship them to wherever they are needed.

Mr Barclay said an enclosure kit could be made from scratch in twenty-two to twenty-four weeks and shipped out in a shipping container.

The company is planning to employ an extra twelve people in the immediate future and another thirteen to eighteen people next year.

Delivery of the first enclosure is expected in March.

It is hoped the company will pick up spinoff orders as RRIPS markets its turbines to the marine industry.
