ABERDEEN, UK – Emerson has broken ground on a new £20 million ($34 million) office and service center at Dyce, Aberdeen, UK, to support the North Sea oil and gas industry. The Aberdeen facility is one of a series of new regional service centers that Emerson Process Management is opening around the world
The facility will support a range of services and solutions from both Emerson Process Management and Emerson Network Power. A 2,600-sq-m (27,986-sq-ft) office accommodating sales and support will be linked to a 3,065-sq-m (32,991-sq-ft) service center, and will provide a customer collaboration suite and meeting facilities.
A lifecycle service center will support Emerson Process Management customers’ North Sea installations. In addition, an Integrated Operations (iOPs) center that uses a working model of a production enterprise, will help address customers’ needs for streamlined decision-making, easily accessible expertise, and the safe, collaborative collocation of essential personnel.
The facility will house Emerson Network Power’s global training center for industrial systems, as well as offer its sales, design, project management, commissioning, and maintenance services. The fully equipped training center will further enhance Emerson Network Power’s capability to manage and deploy accredited engineers for both planned and emergency offshore service support work.
Services available from the new center will include enterprise asset management, engineering and operations support services, products and systems training and education, total metering management, metrology consulting, and calibration and production data validation. For customers with urgent service needs, the center will also provide repair services and emergency spares.
The new facility will replace the existing offices located in nearby Kirkhill, Aberdeen, and is one of over 400 services centers that Emerson Process Management has worldwide. When fully operational in mid-2015, the facility will have a team of over 150 Emerson personnel.
