Jobs and investment on the way as Stork Technical Services Subsea scoops new contracts


Stork Technical Services Subsea, the subsea division of the leading global provider of knowledge-based asset integrity management services for the oil and gas, chemical and power sectors, today announces it will create 10 new positions and invest £2million in its vessel fleet after securing a raft of new contracts.

The contract awards, which total more than £10 million, will see Stork Subsea deliver a range of IRM (integrated inspection, repair and maintenance), light construction and pre & post survey activity for a number of major operators in the UKCS and Mediterranean. The services will be delivered from a combination of bespoke dive ‘intervention craft’ and the company’s dedicated diving support vessel, The Adam’s Vision.

Stork Subsea will add two crafts to its fleet with the new investment, taking the total number of vessels the company operates to seven. The crafts are equipped with a range of advanced technology, such as a bespoke diver recovery system and advanced dive management systems, that have been specifically designed to provide a safe operating environment for the divers and crew onboard.

The new positions, which will be based in Aberdeen, UK, include project managers, project engineers and diving technicians, and will ensure that Stork Subsea is well placed to manage the ongoing increase of activity it is delivering on a global basis.

Roddy James, Director of Stork Technical Services Subsea, said: “We are delighted to have secured this new business and it is testament to the skills and expertise we deliver both in the UKCS and internationally. We are one of the most experienced air and nitrox dive contractors in the industry and this, coupled with our extensive fleet and excellent onshore and offshore teams, means we are experiencing significant demand for our services.

“We always strive to deliver our services in a safe, efficient and cost-effective manner and investing in our dive intervention craft are an excellent example of this. The craft allow us to provide a safe, field proven alternative to using DSVs to deliver IRM in areas that may be hard to reach or situated close to a rig. Our existing fleet has been utilised across the globe and we have already had enquiries on availability for the new crafts once delivered.”
