Independent subsea engineering and training company Jee yesterday celebrated moving into bigger offices that will allow the firm to double to size of its Aberdeen workforce.
The Tonbridge-headquartered firm’s new “subsea corridor” premises are more than double the size of its previous Westhill office, with the capacity for 60 staff, and can provide project office support for operator or contractor personnel. Dr Jonathan Lindsay, head of the Aberdeen office, said: “Having outgrown our previous office, moving to these new premises will enable Jee to increase staff numbers 110% in Scotland.
“Jee moved away from being a niche pipeline engineering consultancy some time ago to become a fully integrated service provider.
“Aberdeen, as a subsea centre of excellence, has become the hub of this business activity, from which we market our subsea engineering expertise, as we increasingly win engineering projects around the globe.”
Malcolm Webb, chief executive of trade body Oil & Gas UK, officially opened the new office.
He said: “Jee’s growth as an independent firm is truly impressive.
“It opened a new London office earlier this year and is expanding in Aberdeen.
“I am particularly impressed by the company’s investment in a portfolio of specialist subsea engineering training courses.”
