Acergy Opens Shop in Moscow

Acergy has opened a new representative office in Moscow, Russia.

The seabed-to-surface engineering contractor for the global offshore industry, which is celebrating its first anniversary following a major re-branding campaign, set up the office in the Russian capital to oversee and manage prospective opportunities in the region.

Peter Sellen will become Vice President Acergy Russia, and Denis Prikazchikov will take on the role of Business Development Director.

Sellen said: "The move into Moscow underlines our commitment to Russia's established oil and gas industry and expanding offshore market. As a leading contractor in the subsea sector, Acergy will play an integral role in its growth and development by capitalising on new opportunities and technologies. Our track record in Europe is unrivalled and as a company we are continuing to evolve. Our expansion into new premises in Moscow is part of that evolution."
