Aberdeen Services Company to Grow Workforce to 2020
Well-Safe Solutions, the Aberdeen-based well abandonment specialist, has confirmed its commitment to grow its workforce to 400 people in the next three years.
The company has already secured its first contract after launching in July, and is on track to have 30 employees by the end of this year at its Aberdeen headquarters.
In addition to its employment pledge, Well-Safe revealed that it has chosen to locate its onshore marine base in the Port of Dundee.
The company has secured two acres of quayside facilities with access to 40,000 square feet of covered space at the Port of Dundee for its marine assets.
“This marine support base in Dundee will play a crucial role in supporting our rapidly growing business,” said Phil Milton, chief executive of Well-Safe Solutions, in a company statement.
“We have chosen the Port of Dundee because of the critical mass of decommissioning companies already based here and the facilities on offer. We are looking forward to fostering a strong partnership with Forth Ports,” he added.
Stuart Wallace, chief operating officer of Forth Ports Limited, which owns and operates the Port of Dundee, said Well-Safe Solutions will be a huge asset to the port, providing an economic boost to the area.
“Decommissioning activity in the North Sea basin is increasing and we are excited to welcome Well-Safe Solutions, who are bringing innovation and expertise to the challenges of well abandonment,” said Wallace in an organization statement.
