EnerMech Invests In Second Norwegian Base
The new base and workshop in Bergen was selected to be closer to Norway’s largest shipyards and to offer a rapid response service to existing and new clients.
EnerMech will target the Process, Pipeline & Umbilicals (PPU), hydraulics, cranes and rental equipment markets and will be able to offer clients a more reactive service for on-site mechanical provision and general customer support.
The expansion will take EnerMech’s headcount in Norway to 50, and the company expects the new base to grow in line with its Stavanger operation, which has seen annual growth of between 50-80% over the last four years.
EnerMech general manager in Norway, Trond Møller, said: “After four years of steady growth in Stavanger, opening in Bergen is a natural fit as the city is an important centre for Norway’s oil, gas and subsea industries.”
“This will give us access to Norway’s largest yard market and we are confident there will be a strong demand for our cranes, rental equipment, hydraulics and PPU services. Bergen has always been important to our long-term objectives and this expansion shows we are committed to Norway for the long term and that we will continue to invest in infrastructure to meet client expectations.”
EnerMech Ltd was formed in April 2008 and specialises in the supply, maintenance and engineering of cranes, lifting, valves and hydraulic equipment, equipment rental and the provision of training and specialist personnel to the energy industry. In August 2010 EnerMech invested £4 million to acquire its 16 acre headquarter site in Aberdeen. A further £840,000 is being spent on refurbishments and the construction of new workshops, while another £2 million has been invested in setting up a new Valve Care division which will target the valve supply, testing, inspection and maintenance sector. In December 2010 EnerMech acquired Aberdeen Valve Supplies Ltd and its subsidiaries LG Ball Valves Ltd and Valve Paint Shop Ltd.
