Customer Testimonials


TWI Ltd
Eddie Watts - Laboratory Group Manager
“TWI has been working with KW Designed Solutions for many years to develop unique solutions to enable delivery of our projects. These projects have ranged from High Pressure Hydrogen testing vessels with mechanical loading capabilities to test a range of materials in Hydrogen from sub-zero temperatures up to elevated temperatures through to pressure vessels for environmental exposure testing with sour gases. 

Recently KW Designed Solutions have designed and delivered a suite of complete machines to test in sour gas environments from 0 to 2000 Bar and temperatures up to 300°C these machines incorporated mechanical testing for slow strain rate testing and stirrers for agitating the solutions.”


Siemens Subsea
“KW Designed Solutions have been delivering bespoke pressure test vessels and associated ancillary equipment to Siemens Subsea for the past ten years, to meet both Production and Qualification requirements. Delivered solutions range from large capacity, high pressure test vessels complete with media agitation, temperature control and tilting functionality, to pressurization modules with automated control.

KW Designed Solutions and Siemens Subsea have worked very closely and effectively throughout complex design phases to achieve robust, cost effective, state of the art pressure testing equipment. Manufacture, installation and commissioning phases have been executed thoroughly and after-sales support has been excellent.”


Aker Solutions
“Your engineers have been very professional, they are efficient and professional and see every challenge as an opportunity to shine. Willing and dedicated throughout the installation and training, demonstrating a real ‘can-do’ attitude. A real credit to KW and from a customer perspective they have provided excellent service. I couldn’t have wished for any better.”


Applied Acoustic Engineering
On behalf of Applied Acoustic Engineering, I purchased a 690bar pressure test system from KW Design Solutions Ltd in December 2008. The system was assembled and delivered on schedule. It was installed and commissioned into our new factory in a very quick and effective manner.

Since the installation just over two and a half years ago we have had virtually no downtime and any additional assistance has been available at a phone call.
I would highly recommend the service provided by the gentlemen at KW Designed Solutions

Yours Sincerely

Production Manager


Astech Projects Ltd
During 2010 and 2011, KW Designed Solutions worked closely with Astech Projects to jointly develop and manufacture two types of precision components for an advanced and novel automated petroleum research system. Initially, KW Designed Solutions produced prototype units for evaluation and then manufactured multiples of each unit to the full design. KW Designed Solutions provided excellent engineering support services and produced high quality components and sub-assemblies.

All equipment was supplied in project schedule together with all necessary supporting design, certification and test documentation. We found KW Designed Solutions to be an excellent company to work with and we are very impressed with their approach. We would not hesitate to work with them again.

Mechanical Engineering Imperial College London
KW Designed Solutions were asked by me to manufacture a pressure vessel to contain high temperature and pressure gases for investigation of diesel sprays. We have been pleased with the design, quality and service of the KW Designed Solutions Fuel Test Rig and when the time comes, sometime next year, we shall be approaching KW Designed Solutions once again.

Yours sincerely
Alex Taylor
Professor of Fluid Mechanics.


Teledyne Oil & Gas
Teledyne Oil & Gas has purchased two pressure vessels from KW Designed Solutions. We have been satisfied with the vessel design and manufacture, including the quality and customer service provided. We would have no hesitation in using KW Designed Solutions for our future pressure vessel needs.
