Investment in Aberdeen

[ January 12, 2012   //   ]

Energy logistics specialist Peterson SBS is investing £1.5 million in its quayside operations at Aberdeen Harbour. The company has leased a further two berths from Aberdeen Harbour Board and has secured additional accommodation, including a transit warehouse for the receipt and containerisation of goods consigned for international distribution or offshore along with offices for its operations team. Half the transport fleet will also be upgraded this year.

Peterson SBS managing director Mike Porter said: “The international sea freight market is a key target for Peterson SBS in 2012 and to meet the needs of this sector we have increased our quayside operations by leasing two more berths at Waterloo Quay. We also anticipate 25% uplift in demand for these services from our existing North Sea clients. The addition of the two berths will bring the total number of private berths we operate at Aberdeen Harbour to five.” Peterson SBS says it is the only oil and gas logistics contractor with its own private berthage in the port of Aberdeen.

Peterson SBS has since 2008 been part of the Dutch logistics group Peterson Control Union , which specialises in inspection, quality management and logistics.
