NORSEA UK has taken arrival of its first ever grain and coal vessels which will see the company venture into new sectors.
NorSea UK’s Peterhead facility recently received the vessels with the firm saying it reflected important new markets opening up after a multi-million-pound investment in diversification.
Whilst still focused on the provision of traditional services to project vessels operating in the North Sea, the recent work further underlines the multi-purpose capabilities of its Merchant Quay base where the removal of the old fish market building significantly added to the space available.
Karen Russell, NorSea UK country manager said: “During these challenging times, it is more important than ever for us to find strength through diversification and tapping into these new markets is an excellent way of fostering sustainability.
“Investment in our Peterhead facilities makes us correctly positioned to service the needs of a wide range of industries, using a local supply chain to fulfil our long-term commitment to the town.”
NorSea UK operates from its headquarters in Aberdeen’s Altens Industrial Estate and facilities at Peterhead’s Merchants and Smith Quays.
