AVC Expands Offshore Service Provision

Aberdeen-based AVC Media Enterprises has expanded its offshore service provision with the introduction of Offshore and Security Services. AVC makes this expansion in line with its growth strategy, widening its audiovisual operations within the offshore industry.


This is a strategic move for AVC, which views this service expansion as a natural progression from current onshore and offshore audiovisual services. AVC follows this growth with the appointment of a dedicated and experienced manager for Offshore and Security Services, Craig Douglas. Craig will be responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of projects.


Craig joins the existing audiovisual team at AVC with almost 20 years experience in the offshore industry, having specialised in the offshore installation and maintenance of Satellite TV and radio Entertainment Systems and Hazardous Area CCTV Systems.


George Carnegie, Director for AVC Media Enterprises commented on the expansion of his audiovisual team's offshore service provision, "I am delighted to welcome such an experienced offshore engineer to our audiovisual team. By expanding our audiovisual service provision of offshore security and satellite entertainment systems, we are widening our service offering to fit with our long term growth strategy. AVC will now be able to design, install and maintain a host of equipment such as Gyro Stabilized Satellite (SeaTel) dishes on offshore vessels, including ships and semi subs.


AVC has already experienced high demand for offshore services, with service contracts already in place with two major North Sea operators. Craig continued, "AVC has experienced a rise in demand for these types of installations, particularly when operators require technological updates or enhancements. We have the ability to design a bespoke package to meet individual offshore requirements. From satellite TV systems to CCTV systems with down rig leg applications, we will meet any challenge head on.


"AVC is offering a first class service to the offshore industry, not only personally installing equipment, but also maintaining technologies to ensure longevity. In my opinion, companies that go that extra mile for the customer will prove themselves as market leaders, which is the type of service we intend to provide. I am extremely confident AVC will continue to expand its client portfolio in this area and look forward to the challenges my new post will bring."
