About us

MSB trading as Sea Power Ltd. was founded in 2019. The engineers in the company have been involved in providing mechanical and structural design services since the parent company formation in 2008. Previous works included complete design and build of a floating power station deployed in Co. Galway, design and build of test rigs and ancillary hydraulic and electrical systems, complete loads analysis for structures, FMECA for complex machines,  LCOE studies for the renewable energy sector, subcontracting with larger companies such as ARUP international, Romax Technologies, SEAI, Wave Energy Scotland, and Universities. 

MSB can provide on-site Project Engineers, Project Managers, or Mechanical or Structural Engineering roles into other client's projects as subcontracted staff, as required. We also provide 3rd-party evaluation and inspections. 

If you are in the private sector, use MSB to out-source your mechanical design engineering tasks.
