Yuken’s 2023: A Year of Innovation and Expansion

2023 has been an incredible year for Yuken, filled with exciting projects that showcase our commitment to excellence and innovation. From contributing to the University of Manchester’s renowned School of Engineering, to expanding our workshop at Yuken HQ, we’ve been at the forefront of transformative initiatives. In this blog post, we’ll delve into some of the highlights of our endeavours in 2023.

Elevating Academic Excellence at the University of Manchester:

The University of Manchester’s School of Engineering is a hub of academic excellence, dedicated to advancing engineering knowledge and addressing challenges of industrial and societal importance, and Yuken had the privilege of working closely with the university on the fit-out of their hydraulics department. Our contribution to these world-leading facilities aligns with our commitment to supporting institutions that prioritise the civic benefits of engineering research. The school boasts a diverse range of experimental facilities with unique capabilities in thermal hydraulics, coupled with in-depth expertise in various flow and thermal diagnostic techniques. Yuken’s involvement in enhancing these facilities underscores our dedication to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in engineering research.

New Projects on the Horizon:

Looking ahead, Yuken is excited to learn about two ground-breaking projects that will leave a lasting impact. Firstly, the construction of the New Mersey Ferries in Merseyside. Yuken has played a part in previous project with Mersey Ferries where they have supported in the upgrade to the ferry terminal in Seacombe.

We are also thrilled to hear about the transformation work being carried out at the iconic Littlewoods building into the most exciting film production campus in the UK. Yuken would love to become involved in this venture bringing our unique expertise in creating customised hydraulic solutions in ever-diverse applications.
