Centrifuges Un-Limited, the Aberdeen-headquartered oilfield services firm, is increasing its headcount as it targets growth in Norway.
The 25% increase takes total staff up to 20, six months on from being bought by Linton Investments, owned by the family behind Ferguson Group.
Centrifuges is launching its mechanical separation service into Norway, which is where it has won more than half of its business since January.
The company did not disclose targets for turnover from the Norwegian business.
Director James Scullion said: “The company has a long association with Norway because its first ever project took place there back in 2001.
“Since that time, the region has continued to play an important part in operations and now is the right time for us to test the market with our mechanical separation portfolio.”
Fellow director John Dick added that the firm is ready to get back to business following the Covid-19 outbreak, with the majority of ts workshop and offshore staff having returned to work.
He said: “Whilst volumes are not at forecast levels, we are pleased that we are still working and that we have people and equipment offshore.”
