An Aberdeen-based service company is on track to grow its headcount to 20 by the end of the year as it presses on with a strategy of growing core business whilst exploring diversification opportunities.
At the beginning of this year, Centrifuges Un-Limited was acquired by Linton Investments Limited and, since then, more than half of business secured has been won on the international stage with Norway leading the charge in emerging markets.
With a raft of Norway-based heat exchanger projects already under its belt, Centrifuges Un-Limited is now poised to launch to the Norwegian market its mechanical separation service. It offers NORSOK-approved equipment specialising in fluid cleaning solutions for diesel fuel management, oily water separation for platform decommissioning, rig drains treatment, pipeline cleaning, well testing activities and well completions.
As part of their mechanical separation service Centrifuges Un-limited offers a flexible, integrated slops treatment system which cleans waste fluid streams at source in various onshore and offshore environments. This reduces the costs associated with transporting and handling waste between these locations and environmental centres, ultimately reducing the overall carbon footprint. The process focuses on the liquid part of the waste and uses specially-developed mechanical separation techniques which have been fine-tuned during the system's decade-long development to clean waste sufficiently for it to be discharged in accordance with environmental legislative requirements. The service is currently deployed in the UKCS on a decommissioning work scope and has recorded impressive results to date.
Commenting on the company's Norwegian aspirations, James Scullion of Centrifuges Un-Limited said: “The company has a long association with Norway because its first ever project took place there back in 2001. Since that time, the region has continued to play an important part in operations and now is the right time for us to test the market with our mechanical separation portfolio.
John Dick added: “The majority of our workshop and offshore staff have now returned to work following all necessary guidelines and, whilst volumes are not at forecast levels, we are pleased that we are still working and that we have people and equipment offshore.”
“Deeper exploration of opportunities in Norway, and the opportunity to work with a local company, will further sharpen our focus on creating a diversified income stream by refreshing our global footprint in the oil industry and other sectors.”
