Engineering services firm ODE has opened a new Aberdeen office after scooping £20million in Southern North Sea contract awards.
The London-headquartered firm said the new office at The Exchange on Market Street will be used to further expand its operations and engineering division.
ODE, owned by Doris Group, was created in 1978 to provide engineering, project management and operations support services to oil and gas, marine and renewables firms in the North Sea.
The new premises will have capacity to grow to 20 staff in its initial months with “significant growth” planned thereafter, supported by bases in Great Yarmouth and London.
It comes after success in operations support and brownfield engineering in the southern sector.
The firm has also made key management appointments for the move, with Michele Eaves joining as regional projects director from Spirit Energy and Andrew Ferguson, from Petrofac, becoming regional operations director.
Director of Business Development, Gerry Miller, also previously of Petrofac before joining ODE last year, will be in the office with Ms Eaves and Mr Ferguson.
CEO Peter Godfrey said: “The new office and clients create an excellent platform for our growth within the asset management division, oil and gas sector and northern North Sea.
“These contracts will create opportunities for long-term strategic partnerships, and we are eager to work with companies who strive towards innovation, flexibility, and intelligent solutions – much like ourselves.
“Being the most agile, experienced and focused player, we bring a new, more efficient, offering to the market, ensuring the most economical way of achieving reduced costs.”
