Offshore staff

GLASGOW, UK – Engineering company PD&MS Energy and fabrication and engineering firm Harlen plan to invest £2.5 million ($4.2 million) toward a new rig repair and subsea fabrication facility in one of Scotland’s ports, the Port of Dundee.

The 3,600-sq-m (38,750-sq-ft) facility on Princess Alexandra Wharf at the Port of Dundee is expected to house up to 50 full-time personnel (rising to 260, including contractors, during specific projects) and to manage offshore asset service works in excess of £8 million ($13.3 million) in its first financial year.

Previously based in neighboring Prince Charles Wharf on a short-term lease, the new, larger facility is optimized for rig repair and upgrades, vessel repair and mobilizations, large fabrications, and general work across other energy sectors.

Bruce Gill, managing director of Harlen, said, “This facility increases not just our physical capacity and capability in supporting PD&MS in the rig repair market, but its quayside location will also allow Harlen to extend its offerings in subsea equipment, topside module, accommodation modules, and large-scale fabrication sectors.”
