Marine Technical Limits (MTL) has increased its headcount as part of a £400,000 investment in the organisation.
The Kintore-based firm, a specialist for the integrity management of FPSOs (floating production, storage and offloading) and other marine vessels, has taken on six new recruits.
It comes as the firm, which now employs 44 people, targets turnover of £4.8million this year.
Three of the new workers are software developers, joining to further develop MTL’s PYXIS management system which allows clients to manage and track maintenance, inspection and repair of their assets.
Other appointments have included two new CAD (computer-aided design) designers and an equipment technician.
Projects director Calum MacLean said: “We are delighted to welcome these six new recruits. Investing in our employees and bringing onboard young talented people is part of our ethos at MTL.
“Their employment comes as part of a £400k investment this year. We are extending the features of our Pyxis integrity management software to external users and furthering expanding our inspection planning for UAV and ROV surveys.”
Mr MacLean and fellow director Matthew Lewin founded the business as a two-man consultancy in 2003 and gradually grew the headcount.
MTL supports FPSO integrity management and on-station repair work in regions including the UK North Sea, Newfoundland and West Africa.
