Dron & Dickson, specialist in design, supply and maintenance of hazardous area electrical equipment, has opened an office in Brazil creating the potential for future work in the area.

The new base follows on from £10 million of contracts being secured in the region. Dron & Dickson Servicos de Equipamentos Electricos Ltda. will be the company’s first registered office in South America, located in Rio de Janiero.

The company has a history of work within the region, including ongoing contracts to perform electrical inspection and maintenance, as well as rope access work, on assets offshore Brazil.

Dron & Dickson employs more than 300 people both off and onshore and has a network of bases in Aberdeen, Hull, Lowestoft, Stirling, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
