Flowline Specialists forms service and maintenance unit
Scottish energy equipment manufacturer and service provider Flowline Specialists has launched a new service and maintenance division.
It will operate from the firm’s existing workshop facility at its Oldmeldrum headquarters and utilise existing personnel.
The firm will use its expertise to service and refurbish cable spooling and deployment products that are owned by other companies.
This includes the oil and gas, subsea, decommissioning and marine renewables sectors.
In addition to repair, refurbishment and overhaul work, Flowline Specialists will offer an equipment rental service.
The company has been developing the new division for about a year, investing around £50,000 to set it up.
Creating the new division is the latest step in the firm’s strategy to diversify its business.
Initially focused on the oil and gas and subsea sectors, Flowline Specialists entered the offshore renewable energy market nearly a decade ago
Since then, the company has provided cable handling and deployment equipment to multiple projects.
Ross Whittingham, CEO of Flowline Specialists, said: “For several years, we have taken active steps to build a diverse business offering and our new service and maintenance division is further evidence of this.
The company anticipates strong demand for servicing and maintaining electrical, hydraulic and mechanical spooling and deployment equipment.
To that end, as demand for this service grows, it plans to increase staffing levels as required.
