With 13 years in module manufacturing and installation and nearly 35 years of overall oil and gas experience Mr. Christie’s previous roles include technical and project management.
 



Both Mr. Hirst and Mr. Christie join eastern hemisphere operations after a strong 2012, a period that saw considerable growth for HB Rentals in its key market areas and significant investment in its operations with the opening of brand new £1million facilities in Sauchen, Aberdeenshire.



HB Rentals operate a fleet of more than 400 A60 units comprising a wide variety of two to 12 man accommodation cabins, galleys, laundry, recreation and mess rooms, gymnasiums, heliports, offices, laboratories, MWD, mudlogging and well-support cabins as well as other custom fit-outs as specified by its worldwide customer base.
