In addition to new equipment and facilities, UES has recruited eight key staff members, including design engineers, and workshop and project delivery personnel. The Group has also invested in additional training for its 400-strong employee base and bolstered its apprenticeship scheme.

UES focuses on marine and subsea project support equipment and project management to the survey, ROV, and diving markets. It is one of the Group’s newly restructured divisions alongside ATR Lifting Solutions (formerly Cosalt), ATR Power Solutions, ATR Equipment Solutions, and ATR Marine Solutions.
