Marine and offshore engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore has opened a new office in Aberdeen, Scotland, as it seeks to expand. The firm, which already employs 222 employees in 15 offices across the world, expects its Aberdeen to grow quickly and plans to add experienced consultants to the office.
Aqualis is a specialized consultancy that focuses on shallow through to deepwater offshore segments of the oil and gas sector. Located on the site of the Grandholm Mill, the firm's Aberdeen office is intended to consist of a mix of offshore-experienced mariners and engineers.
Aqualis's core services include: concept, FEED (front-end engineering design) and basic design engineering for upgrades and conversions of jack ups, FPSO vessels and rigs; the transportation and installation of floating production units and integrated decks using third-party equipment; marine warranty; dynamic positioning; construction supervision; and due diligence services.
The company also offers rig moving services, inclining experiments and deadweight surveys, decommissioning (floating and fixed), mooring design/integrity expertise as well as experience transfer for marine renewable energy systems.
Aqualis CEO David Wells commented in a company statement:
"We know that job cuts currently is a common theme in the oil industry, but we are taking a long-term approach. Entering Aberdeen was the obvious next step of our expansion strategy. The city is the oil and gas center of the UK and packed with oil companies, rig operators and oil services players who constantly need support from senior engineers and mariners for challenging offshore projects and integrity problems. That is exactly what we offer."
