Consistency and Quality Are Hallmarks of Ecosse Subsea Systems’ Growing Engineering Division

Energy technology company, Ecosse Subsea Systems, (ESS) has increased the size of its engineering division in response to client demand for specialist engineering packages.

Aberdeen-based ESS specialises in trenching, deepwater installation and subsea lifting technologies for the oil and gas, marine and renewable industries, and has a range of patented technologies in development.

The new division will complement ESS’ well established consultancy service and will  be headed up by chartered engineers David Hunt and Faris Lutfy.

Mr Hunt has extensive experience in subsea construction and operations and was previously in a senior role with Flexlife and Acergy Group. Mr Lutfy has worked on major EPIC design, manufacture and installation projects while employed in senior roles at Subsea 7 and DOF Subsea UK Ltd.

Ecosse Subsea Systems managing director, Mike Wilson, said: “We have been listening to our clients and recognised there was a requirement for a service which could combine first class engineering with extensive offshore installation experience.

“Our engineering division will see a project through from conception to execution and final installation and will offer consistency and quality which is to some extent lacking in the current market. We can take on precommissioning and decommissioning projects and anything in between, from installation of risers to platform, pipeline and umbilical installations.”

Mr Wilson added: “We think there is real value for clients to be able to call on hands-on engineers who can take their clever solutions from the drawing board and carry the project all the way through to completion.”
