Proserv has bolstered its position as a global-leading specialist in energy production services after unveiling a new subsea test and assembly facility that doubles the company’s capacity and harnesses the fast-growing market demand for its services.
The facility, which spans more than 27,500ft, is believed to be the first of its kind in the UK in terms of its size and industry-leading capabilities. Complete with large test pits, the new facility has 100 per cent capacity for the design testing, maintenance and installation of subsea equipment including system integration tests, factory acceptance tests, tree assembly and blow-out preventers re-certifications prior to deployment offshore or subsea.
David Lamont, chief executive officer at Proserv, said: “The new Birchmoss facility strongly positions Proserv for accelerated expansion and signifies its increase in capabilities and expertise, particularly in the drilling, production, subsea and decommissioning sectors. As one of the few service companies in the world able to provide this integrated service and now double the capacity, it significantly enhances Proserv’s response times and improved operational performance and productivity, whilst maintaining the highest standards of safety, quality and reliability.”
