A Danish-based company which specialises in cleaning technical fluids and their transfer systems for the global energy industry, has established its first UK division in Aberdeen in response to increasing market demand for its services from the UK oil and gas sector.

Established in Esbjerg in 1995, the Ocean Team Group of Companies now has seven divisions around the world. The new Aberdeen company – Ocean Team Fluidcare  – will particularly focus on servicing the offshore and marine sectors as well as onshore refineries and power plants.

It will be headed up by general manager Alex McBride who has more than 30 years’ experience in on and offshore, most recently as a general manager in the Southern North Sea. His particular specialisations include the handling of NORM material and decommissioning.

He said the Aberdeen company is anticipated to create up to a dozen jobs within the next 18 months.

Jens Peder Thomsen, Managing Director of Ocean Team Group, said that the decision to set up a division in the UK was in response to low oil prices.

He said: “We already work with clients in the UK market but establishing a base in Aberdeen to service those clients means we can offer them a more cost effective price. Combined with this are the solutions which we have developed and patented which mean we can clean systems online without shutdown achieving considerable time and cost savings for our clients.”
