UES Seanic, a new company made by merging Aberdeen-based company Underwater Engineering Services (UES) and Houston-headquartered Seanic Oceans Systems, has won its first contract since the merger.
The company said on Thursday that the newly formed business would support Oceana Subsea on a decommissioning campaign in Tunisia, a country in which UES and Seanic never previously operated in.
The new company was formed on January 1 this year with 11 people based in the UK and a further 43 in Houston. The company also operates in Singapore and has distribution centers in Australia, Norway, China, and Brazil.
The merger itself was a result of a merger between their parent companies ATR Group and Centurion Group last year.
The company said that the Aberdeen office would manage the scope of work which entails the supply of an ROV launch and a recovery crane, ROV operable hydraulic breakers, as well as ROV tooling manifolds, hydraulic power unit, and jetting and dredging equipment.
Centurion Group chief executive, Keith Moorhouse, said: “The combination of both subsea equipment design and manufacturing companies has vastly extended our capabilities.
“This first contract award with Oceana Subsea reflects our capabilities to design and build bespoke equipment for specific projects as well as our vastly expanded ROV tooling hire fleet.”
