Survival Craft Inspectorate Expands North Sea Ops

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Aberdeen-based marine safety specialist Survival Craft Inspectorate is expanding its UK operations to meet demand from oil and gas clients operating in the Southern North Sea sector.
 
The company is investing $1.2m in staffing and equipping new premises on the Harfreys Industrial Estate in Great Yarmouth. The site comprises a large workshop, extensive storage facilities and offices.
 
Survival Craft — which has its headquarters at Aberdeen’s Findon Shore — has more than 20 years’ international experience in the manufacture, inspection, testing, and servicing of life-saving equipment. As well as operating from the UK and Norway, it has a global footprint comprising bases in Singapore, Malaysia, Western Australia, China, and the US.
 
Around 10 people will initially be recruited locally for the new Great Yarmouth operation, and this number is expected to grow to 20 during the first 12 months. Among roles to be filled are those of client co-ordinator, workshop supervisor, receptionist, and service engineers.
