Ecosse Subsea Systems doubles workload on Baltic wind farm project

Ecosse Subsea Systems (ESS) has doubled its workload on a Baltic Sea wind farm project, the Banchory-based engineering firm said today. Italian company Prysmian Group last year subcontracted ESS to carry out pre-cut seabed trenching for Wikinger, a planned 70-turbune wind farm off Germany. ESS has now agreed to take on the route clearance and seabed preparation work on the Wikinger development, which has been led by Spain’s Iberdrola since 2010.

Aberdeenshire engineering firm reaping benefits of renewables switch

A Banchory-based engineering firm is making its work in the renewable energy industry pay after diversifying from the oil and gas sector. Ecosse Subsea Systems (ESS) said more than half of its projects are now in renewables. Yesterday it confirmed that the decision to branch out into the sector has played a big part in tripling the firm’s profits. ESS, which performs seabed clearance, trenching and cable laying work, said revenues hit £15million for the year ending March 2014, an 88% increase, while operating profits went up to £3.4million from £1million.
