LOC Aberdeen, part of LOC Group, the premier international marine and engineering consulting firm, is pleased to announce it has been awarded two distinguished oil and gas contracts this year, cementing LOC’s position as a leading provider of Marine Warranty Survey (“MWS”), marine and vessel assurance and marine engineering services across the Scottish North Sea Energy developments.
The two new contracts, which will take place off the coast of Aberdeen, follow several other vessel assurance contract wins and a busy year supporting offshore wind projects in the region, some of which include service delivery across several countries.
In response to new technical challenges and travel complexities brought on by COVID-19, LOC Aberdeen has developed robust remote procedures, where applicable, for delivering vessel assurance and suitability surveys of project vessels to minimise time onboard and reduce the risk of COVID transfer to the project. LOC has also drawn on the extensive network of pre-vetted specialised consultants across over 200 locations worldwide, to ensure project milestones and objectives are met on time.
Furthermore, LOC Aberdeen has been awarded contracts supporting local, national, and international businesses in energy development projects including on-hire vessel inspections, FMEA and FMECA services, DP trials, GAP analysis services amongst others.
Adrian Torry, LOC Aberdeen Managing Director, LOC commented:
“We are delighted with the scopes of work LOC Aberdeen has been contracted in, both across offshore oil & gas as well as the renewable industry, in 2020 to date. The contract wins reflect our growing expertise and our positioning within the industry. They are also a reflection of the sustainability and agility of the group, to meet the changing complexities brought-on by the pandemic, without compromise to our technical know-how or delivery.
As we look ahead to 2021, we are excited to continue our progress as we strive to provide the highest level of tailored services; meeting the exact needs of clients and projects.”
