Boost for Dundee decommissioning

[ March 20, 2019   //   ]

A new alliance of businesses in the North Sea Oil & Gas decommissioning sector has been launched in Dundee. Forth and Tay Decommissioning includes ABB, Augean North Sea Services, COES Caledonian, Forth Ports, John Lawrie Group, Offshore Decommissioning Services and Well-Safe Solutions.

Founding partner, Charles Hammond, chief executive of Forth Ports said: “Dundee offers a highly-skilled local workforce, with access to major transport links for easy commuting and streamlined logistics, while the Port of Dundee’s strategic location, ample dockside, and portcentric infrastructure make it the ideal domestic hub for decommissioning.”
