UTEC has reinforced its presence in Scotland with the opening of new regional headquarters in Aberdeen.


The purpose fitted building comprises over 3000 sq. ft. of modular office accommodation and 4000 sq. ft. of workshop/warehouse space, enabling further development of the range of services available to clients at home and overseas.  UTEC’s Aberdeen base provides services in the North Sea and West Africa and supports operations in the Mediterranean and North Africa in conjunction with the company’s Naples office. UTEC expects revenues from Europe and African operations to more than double during 2012, which in turn has led to a 60% increase in staff.


“This facility supports UTEC’s vision for the region which includes additional growth of our core capabilities; construction support, AUV, geophysical and geotechnical services,” says Kevin McBarron, UTEC’s Aberdeen-based Managing Director.  “This new building also provides our valuable staff with a safe, comfortable working environment including a dedicated training facility providing more in-house training and specific lunch and learns events for clients.”

 

UTEC is one of the world’s largest independent offshore survey companies providing a wide range of survey services including offshore positioning and construction support, geophysical and AUV surveys, dimensional control surveys, laser scanning and modeling and geotechnical sampling.  UTEC has offices located around the world including: Houston, Aberdeen, Rio de Janeiro, Calgary, Perth, Singapore, St. John’s, Naples and Dubai.
