An Aberdeen-based subsea engineering and project management firm has won £2 million worth of new orders since the start of the year, and hired 12 new staff members.
PDi, a subsidiary of Tattva Group, has also beefed up its offering, with the addition of concept and front-end engineering services, initially focusing on subsea tiebacks.
Michael O’Sullivan, chief executive of PDi, which now employs 70 people, said the company decided to expand in response to demand from new, independent North Sea operators.
In February, the company was awarded its first concept development work for i3 Energy’s Liberator field development in the Moray Firth area.
Mr O’Sullivan said: “The company has grown its workforce to meet rising demand for its subsea engineering and decommissioning services.
“We have also recently completed a rebranding exercise, which we believe is timely given we are entering an exciting expansion era in the company’s history.
“We have always had the ability to attract high calibre people and we’re delighted to have such a tried, tested and most importantly trusted team launch our concept and FEED offering.
“Our aim is to build on our success to date and establish ourselves as one of the leading independent engineering houses throughout the international subsea industry, providing niche subsea services ‘from design to decom’.”
It had been part of UK subsea company Ceona, which sank into administration in September 2015.
