ABERDEEN subsea services company Orca Oceanic Systems Ltd (OOS) has opened a new operations facility in Burntisland after securing a “significant contract”.
The facility, at the former Burntisland Fabrications (BiFab) site, will be the focal point for the refurbishment, modernisation and commissioning of dive systems and associated equipment.
The expansion for the Portlethen-based business comes following the winning of the contract from Well-Safe Solutions for the provision of Dive System Support and Engineering Services.
Mike Masson, Orca Oceanic Systems managing director, said: “We are delighted to finally be in our new Burntisland facility. The ex BiFab location, its facilities, and the surrounding area’s engineering capabilities makes the location uniquely suited to execute our current and future projects and contracts.
“Work has already begun at the new facility with our clients’ (Well-Safe Solutions) Saturation Dive System which arrived from Singapore two weeks ago. The system will undergo a comprehensive modification, refurbishment and commissioning scope prior to being installed on the Well-Safe Guardian, Well-Safe Solution’s bespoke plug and abandonment asset
“We would also like to thank Forth Ports for their ongoing support with our activity at Burntisland.”
Phil Milton, Well-Safe Solutions chief executive officer, said: “Executing this MSA with Orca Oceanic Systems will ensure the continued delivery of our bespoke plug and abandonment asset, the Well-Safe Guardian, giving our customers the best-in-class service from a single unit.”.
