BISHOPSTOWN, UK – Core Grouting Services is a new addition to Acteon’s company portfolio. Core provides grouting for foundations on oil and gas platforms and offshore wind farms.
Acteon says Core’s grouting capability allows Acteon to offer a complete suite of offshore foundation installation services – from drilling, driving and lifting, to grouting.
John Paul O’Sullivan, engineering manager, and Colin Barrett, equipment manager, will drive the company’s growth from its recently opened global headquarters in Cork, Ireland.
Core expects to grow to approximately 50 employees by the end of 2015 as the company extends its project range and expands its capabilities.
Bernhard Bruggaier, executive vice president of operations at Acteon, commented, “We selected Cork as the location in which to launch and base the business because of the availability of excellent quality engineers and technicians locally to support the company’s growth. Core will continue to recruit talent from the construction trades and will train a workforce for deployment on offshore construction projects.”
