Proserv has invested in a new purpose built technology centre for subsea controls and communications in Great Yarmouth, UK.
The new centre is set in a new 65,000 sq ft Beacon Park site in Gorleston-on-Sea which will feature manufacturing and yard space and provides the flexibility to add a further 20,000 sq ft of workshop capacity. The new centre is expected to be completed by March 2018.
David Lamont, Proserv CEO, said: “Consolidating operations into a modern purpose-built site will make us leaner, more efficient and better placed to deliver for our global customer base, whilst creating capacity for future expansion. The centre will serve as a global hub and Centre of Excellence for our subsea communication and controls activities and ensures we remain at the forefront of our field."
Iain Smith, Proserv region president for UK and Europe, added: “The energy industry continues to seek new solutions that can enhance production and extend asset life and the technical developments in subsea controls and communications being made by our team in Great Yarmouth helps deliver those crucial efficiency gains.
The announcement of the new centre comes at a time of strong growth for Proserv after the company recently secured over £12 million in contract awards for its new-build, after-market and decommissioning services.
