Sembmarine SLP Invests for Future

Offshore engineering, construction and support services specialist Sembmarine SLP said it is investing for the future with the establishment of additional facilities in Lowestoft and Aberdeen.


In Lowestoft the company's Offshore Services Group has just moved into new premises at Newcombe House. Offshore Services has wide ranging service capabilities and typically becomes involved at the very early stages of a contract award, identifying the scope of works, building the high level plan and generating the construct/deconstruct work packs.


This group is currently responsible for two major on-going offshore projects and, with a number of new contract awards expected over the coming 4/6 weeks, the new base will provide sufficient room to accommodate additional personnel who will be recruited for these new projects.


Additional accommodation is also being created by Sembmarine SLP at its Hamilton Dock and load-out quay in Lowestoft in readiness for the further expansion of its skilled engineering and construction work force which will be required to support new contract successes.


In Aberdeen the company has identified a growing number of opportunities to provide a comprehensive front-end engineering design [FEED] service to the offshore oil, gas and wind energy sectors, and is planning to open an office in early 2014 to provide this service. FEED is increasingly being used by the operating companies which have rights and licences to develop or enhance major offshore infrastructure projects as a way of quantifying project risk.


Sembmarine SLP Managing Director Paul Thomson said, "With over 40 years of engineering experience in offshore energy, we are planning to take advantage of the many opportunities which are currently coming to the fore in the North Sea. My colleagues and I believe the investment in these new facilities in Lowestoft and Aberdeen will play an important role in the company's continued growth."
