There are ‘real signs’ that the upturn the industry has been anticipating is materializing, with investment in training and new technology coming forward across the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).
That is the view of Alex Duthie, Dräger Safety UK’s sales and marketing director, who made the comment after Dräger secured new contracts worth more than $4.2 million (GBP 3 million) following its diversification into new technology and training service areas focused on upstream and downstream operations in the North Sea.
The marine and offshore safety equipment supplier, which has supported operations in the UKCS from its base in Aberdeen since 2011, said it boosted its North Sea presence by winning several contract awards from operators and oilfield service providers in late 2017 and early this year.
“There are significant growth opportunities for Dräger Safety across the UK and further afield,” Duthie said in a company statement.
“By working closely with our clients and partners, we will continue to develop new, and evolve our existing, market-leading technologies to support industries’ commitment to achieving continuous improvement in safety,” Duthie added.source: rigzone
