Morson Projects Limited (MPL) has significant experience supporting our clients in managing, maintaining and operating their facilities – our processes and systems have been developed through the successful delivery of numerous and varied contracts over the last two decades. During this time our knowledge and experience has evolved, allowing us to introduce and deliver a range of specific technical and design services aligned to our clients’ needs. These services are tailored to assist in the underpinning of ISO55001 (PAS 55) and support the full lifecycle management of their assets and facilities.
Our Technical Services division is primarily based in our Kelton House offices based on Westlakes Science and Technology Park in west Cumbria, with reachback support from multi-disciplined resources based at the MPL head office in Irlam. The Westlakes office has provision for 100 staff, our offices are equipped with their own ISO 27001 certified IT system. This office is List N accredited for handling Sensitive Nuclear information and has a direct link to one of our largest clients’ IT networks.
Our services support the legal requirements of implementation of the supply of machinery regulations and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER).
The Technical Services division’s safety performance has been recognised with a RoSPA Gold award for the last five years. We are a Gold Level Business Affiliate member of the Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators and a member of the Institute of Asset Management.

If you require further information or wish to discuss your requirements please contact our Kelton House office.
We provide project and contract management using the principles of PRINCE 2, and have APM accredited project managers within our team. Our contracts are managed using NEC3 principles and practices. We also have dedicated planners who utilise Primavera P6 and Microsoft Project software.
Our team have experience and expertise in design development and reviews in the process, mechanical and electrical fields for both new concepts and existing facilities. We specialise in the Nuclear, Infrastructure and Defence industries.
As part of our capability we will develop commissioning logic, robust programmes and plans to meet client requirements, supported by subject matter experts in the five engineering commissioning fields:
- Electrical power and distribution
- Control systems / Specialist instrumentation
- Process piping systems
- Heating Ventilation and Containment (HVAC)
- Mechanical handling
Plant Configuration Reviews
For any given system we can produce a Configuration Management Implementation Plan which will identify all the underpinning engineering documentation required to safely operate and maintain an asset for its anticipated life span. An analysis of this documentation will be undertaken to determine its suitability and where shortfalls occur we can, where necessary, update and resubstantiate the design to meets its current operating context.
Computerised Maintenance Management System Reviews
MPL has extensive experience in updating and maintaining Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS). Our services include the production of Master Equipment Lists (MELs), hierarchical analyses of the system structures and the population of the CMMS system with information including tag numbers, description, safety significance and maintenance periodicities.
Spares and Obsolescence Reviews
Client systems are assessed and critical spares are identified from existing MELs, CMMS inventories or relevant drawings. For each of the identified components, a Material Master is raised identifying the appropriate supplier, cost and lead times. Where a component is no longer available or near the end of its production lifecycle, MPL can identify suitable equivalents or replacements and liaise with the client to assess the impact of any changes.
Asset Condition Assessments
Asset Condition Assessments are carried out by our multidisciplined team of engineering inspectors. Surveyors assess, investigate and record asset condition detail, producing a schedule and report. Recommendations are made for any system defects, shortfalls or perceived engineering standard issues. The recommendations and data are used to trend and predict system failure, life expectancy and reliability.
As part of our services, MPL will assess the significance of an asset in order to determine the correct level of maintenance to ensure that it meets its requirements. Services provided include Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA), Throughput Reliability Availability and Maintainability cases (T-RAM) and Review of Existing Maintenance (REM) studies. MPL employs the Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) methodology which follows an FMEA approach to maintenance tasking and the determining of periodicities.
Operation & Maintenance Documentation
We have over 20 years of experience in producing Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manuals and plant based instructions, defining the requirements and procedures of a plant, its systems and equipment. Documentation includes Volumes A (overview Manual), B (systems manuals), C (operating and maintenance instructions) and D (vendor library). All O&M documentation is produced in accordance with BS EN 82079-1:2012.
Plant Specific and Supporting Documentation
MPL has a team of technical authors experienced in the production and modification of emergency instructions, proof test instructions, alarm response instructions, breakdown instructions and commissioning documentation.
MPL adopts a Systematic Approach to Training (SAT) to fully deliver an end to end training solution, which will follow the ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) process. We design and implement appropriate classroom, development rig/simulator and plant based training material for a variety of personnel including plant operators & maintainers (electrical, instrumental and mechanical).
