EnerMech Looking Long-Term In Norway
As the price of energy continues to fall and talk turns toward pulling the plug on select offshore energy projects, mechanical engineering company EnerMech seems to be bucking the trend in Norway, announcing plans to boost its workforce by more than 20% in the coming year, expanding its offering in Stavanger and Bergen from 60 to 75 staff, with additional plans to invest more than $4m in new equipment.
Based in Aberdeen, EnerMech provides integrated service to the oil and gas sector, including cranes and lifting, process, pipeline and umbilicals (PPU), hydraulics and equipment hire.
“We are recruiting high quality managers and technicians to add to our 60-strong Norwegian team and next year will make a significant investment in new equipment and infrastructure,” said Trond Møller, EnerMech General Manager in Norway. ““We believe the service industry needs to be patient and with market indicators for the medium to longer term looking promising, EnerMech is fully committed to Norway and prepared for an upswing when the market corrects.”
EnerMech recently strengthened its PPU division in Norway with the appointment of Sales Manager Stian Urke and this will be followed with other senior hires in the company’s cranes and lifting, hydraulics and equipment rental divisions.
EnerMech has office, workshop and storage facilities in Stavanger and Bergen and is looking at the potential for a third Norwegian base.
