The newly merged Underwater Engineering Services (UES) and Seanic Oceans Systems has secured its first contract in Tunisia.
As part of the merger between their parent companies ATR Group and Centurion Group last year, the newly formed business of UES Seanic will support Oceana Subsea on a decommissioning campaign in Tunisia, North Africa.
UES Seanic was formed on January 1 this year with 11 personnel based in the UK and a further 43 in Houston. The company operates with locations in Aberdeen, Houston and Singapore with distribution centres in Perth, Norway, China and Brazil.
Personnel in the Aberdeen office will manage the scope of work which includes the supply of a ROV launch and recovery crane, ROV operable hydraulic breakers, as well as ROV tooling manifolds, hydraulic power unit and jetting / dredging equipment.
Centurion Group chief executive, Keith Moorhouse, said: “The combination of both subsea equipment design and manufacturing companies has vastly extended our capabilities and strengthened our position to be able to offer a complete ROV and intervention tooling range and design expertise to our existing clients and also to the wider international marketplace.
“The oil price may have stabilised over the past few months but this hasn’t changed our attitude towards maintaining cost effective solutions to help our clients with their complex subsea operations. This first contract award with Oceana Subsea reflects the experience and sector knowledge held within UES Seanic, our capabilities to design and build bespoke equipment for specific projects as well as our vastly expanded ROV tooling hire fleet. We look forward to working with Oceana Subsea.”
