A Switzerland-headquartered asset integrity firm has moved into a new base in Aberdeen.
Rosen Group hopes the new office on Queen’s Road will help the company grow its North Sea footprint.
The company said it was already working with a number of major operators in the UK continental shelf, providing pipeline integrity, asset life extension and corrosion management services.
The new base will be headed up by technical manager Bryn Roberts, who has worked in the sector for a quarter of a century.
Rosen intends to increase its Granite City headcount to 20 from four over the next two years.
Mr Roberts said: “Rosen’s decision to invest in Aberdeen creates a powerful team of local integrity experts focused on North Sea projects.
“The whole team has significant operational and consultancy experience, supported by the 160 strong Newcastle based office.
“In this respect, we are unique in the city, providing our clients with a highly strategic, highly flexible, holistic integrity management service.”
While Rosen is a relatively new name in Aberdeen, the business has been providing integrity consultancy services in the north-east for years through Macaw Engineering, which is part of the group.
Rosen employs 3,000 people across more than 120 companies.
