Swift Anchors unveiled plans to more than double its workforce during 2023, spurred by the company’s current work program and a growing commercial interest in its technologies.

The company, recently acquired by Aquos, a subsidiary of its largest shareholder and long-standing partner Schottel, is currently working on marine energy projects on both sides of the Atlantic, and is pursuing a number of other project opportunities, in particular within the floating offshore wind sector.

Swift Anchors is developing a suite of cost efficient, rapidly deployable and environmentally sensitive anchoring solutions for the global offshore energy, including floating wind, floating solar, tidal and wave, as well as aquaculture industries.

In this first phase of recruitment, the company is looking for a senior geotechnical engineer, a systems engineer and a mechanical design engineer. The roles are based in Edinburgh, though working overseas is likely, Swift Anchor said, with a second round of recruitment – for engineering and operational roles – planned to commence shortly. 

David Ainsworth, managing director of Swift Anchors, said: “We need to expand our team if we are to meet the growing demand for our anchoring solutions this year and in future years. There is a clear and unrelenting market need for renewable, ocean-based energy across the world which can only be met if reliable and cost-effective anchoring and mooring systems can support them.

“We are strengthening our team now and over the next 6-12 months in response to the growing number of project opportunities that we see in UK and international waters.”
