Consultant Mechanical Engineers

Multi-Disciplinary Mechanical Engineering Services

MSB is a private Irish company (SME) providing a comprehensive service
across a wide spectrum of mechanical engineering design, and renewable energy projects. 

Engage us for any mechanical & structural engineering & CAD tasks you need. E.g. detailed design of any load bearing structures & large or small components.  We also provide LCOE calculations for the Renewable Energy Sector,  FMECA for complex systems, and Life Cycle Analysis for all kinds of products.  We have experience with electromechanical machine subsystem layouts and design. We also engage in minor mechanical engineering challenges such as bolts sizing and patterning, catenary chain and rope sizing, plate and structural steel sizing, and specifications for procured mechanical equipment.   We fully engage in detailed calculations, professional reporting, and all CAD requirements. We are located in the west of Ireland.
