INDUSTRIAL service provider BIS Salamis has hailed an innovation day it held yesterday at its skill centre in Broadfold Road, Bridge of Don, as a great success.
The Aberdeen-based firm demonstrated its latest technologies and innovations for the oil and gas industry to about 100 clients and contractors, focusing on how companies can use new technologies to reduce costs and improve efficiencies.
Among the technologies on show were alternative access techniques, specialist blasting and coating methods, and inspection, environmental and industrial-cleaning services. Also highlighted were training courses offered at the skill centre.
BIS Salamis said that in recent years it had made a conscious move away from its core trades of painting, blasting and scaffolding. It has extended its service range to include inspection, architectural, specialist cleaning, decontamination and alternative-access solutions such as tension netting, lightweight aluminum system scaffolding, rope access and specialist cradles.
Operations manager Sandy Bonner said: “With the summer painting programmes about to start, the innovations day was also an ideal opportunity for us to demonstrate some of the latest protective coating products and techniques available, including single coat systems, high-temperature products and specialist fire-proofing.”
BIS Salamis is an international service contractor which first established a presence in Aberdeen in 1973.
It now employs about 120 onshore and up to 2,000 offshore staff worldwide.
