Enermech will invest £3million in boosting its Norwegian workforce and equipment, the company today confirmed.
The move comes after the company appointed Stian Urke as its sales manager to strengthen the firm’s PPU division in Norway.
Enermech will increase its employee numbers from 60 to 75 which will include senior positions in both the hydraulics and equipment rental divisions as it expands in both Bergen and Stavanger.
The Aberdeen-based company also recently appointed Halliburton’s senior boss as its regional director for the Middle East and Caspian region.
Dave McLeod joined Enermech after a 30-year long career at Haliburton, where he held various positions in the UK, USA, Gabon, Nigeria, Kuala Lumpur, and Australasia.
Trond Møller, general manager, said: “One of our main objectives wherever we work in the world, is to have local facilities staffed by people with local knowledge and with our own equipment on the ground.
“This sends out a strong message that we are fully committed to Norway and it will help us secure further work.
“We have a strong heritage in cranes and the excellent work carried out on the BP Skarv project enhanced our reputation for PPU services and we are making in-roads in to the hydraulics market.
“We aim to build on this and we have several live tenders which if successful would be the platform for showing our true potential in providing integrated services which others providers struggle to match.”
