SHIPPING and offshore services company Clarksons Port Services (CPS) has moved into new, larger premises at Aberdeen Harbour’s Matthew’s Quay.
A wide range of onsite plant and machinery, along with access to a heavy lift pad, 1,600m2 outdoor storage space and 2,000m2 of customs bonded warehouse, is available at the new location.
The business said the move underlined “ongoing commercial success and a commitment to its sustainability strategy”.
The ability to mobilise and operate cranes, plant and labour will allow for large-scale mobilisation and de-mobilisations to take place on the agency’s doorstep.
Innes Cameron, CPS director, said: “Faster vessel access will, of course, bring significant client benefits as our 24/7 turnkey solutions are provided via one central location.
“The opportunity to be based within Aberdeen Harbour, amalgamating our office, warehouse and yard facilities, very much reflects our commitment to the highest-possible level of client service, whilst providing us with the capacity for future expansion.”
CPS’ new premises will also play a key part in the company’s objective to reduce its global carbon footprint. Locally, the increased proximity to the vessels it services will reduce fleet city centre travel, cutting current tCO₂e by 16%.
Matt North, Aberdeen Harbour Board chief operating officer, added: “We welcome this strategic move by CPS to relocate inside the port, further underpinning our position as the port of choice for offshore energy and adding depth to the immediate supply chain.
“We share CPS’ vision to deliver the highest-possible level of customer services and look forward to working closely with Innes and his team.”
