Drillers Attend Launch of New Facility 12/02/2014
The partnership with Cromarty Firth Port Authority (CFPA), owners and operators of Scotland’s leading rig upgrade facility, was revealed last month, confirming Semco Maritime would invest £5million in the Invergordon Service Base.

The event was attended by the industry’s leading oil & gas drilling companies, including Transocean, Dolphin Drilling, Odjfell, Awilco Drilling and Atlantic Marine.  Those present had the opportunity to learn more about the two firms’ integrated approach to providing rig repair and marine expertise.

Bob Buskie, Chief Executive of CFPA said “The launch has been a fantastic opportunity for the market to learn first-hand about what this means for their operations.  By working together both companies will offer an integrated approach to rig inspection, repair and maintenance work from the best deep water port in the UK.

Bob adds “We are keen to ensure customers have greater choice in the Port of Cromarty Firth so this has been an ideal opportunity to showcase the services that are now available directly from the Port, including the provision of logistics and agency services”.

Senior Vice President Hans Peter Jørgensen, Semco Maritime, commented “Our rig repair facility in Invergordon fits well with our facilities in Norway and Denmark, helping to secure Semco Maritime’s role not only within the North Sea sector, but also worldwide.

Andy Dodds, UK General Manager of Semco Maritime said “As we develop our position as a prime operator on the Invergordon Service Base, we are able to introduce innovative solutions for clients, covering the complete range of our products and services.   We can also offer our customers dry dock alternatives, which we know will be of great interest to them for certain projects.

A further event is to be held in Invergordon aimed at supply chain companies based in the Highlands and Scotland.
