Norfolk-based oilfield and renewables service company ATAM Group has opened a new office in Aberdeen to launch three new product lines for the industry.

Set up last year Great Yarmouth, ATAM Group provides tools and software products for maintenance, cleaning and inspection.

Led by experienced industry professional, Mark Loades, the company has invested more than £100,000 into its new office in Dyce and in the launch of a range of pipe cleanliness and inspection tooling, unmanned magnetic ROVs and their unique software package for asset management and intelligence.

Loades said: “This last year has been an exciting whirlwind of new opportunities and future proofing for us.

“Having officially launched at the Southern North Sea Conference and Exhibition at the start of 2017, and then to go on to be a finalist at the EEEGR Innovation Awards for our work to date was an unbelievable achievement.

“Establishing ourselves amongst asset owners and operators in Aberdeen is our primary objective currently, but we have every intention to grow internationally and streamline our service offering for a number of other sectors including renewables and decommissioning.”

Meanwhile, Scotvalve Services, part of the Petrofac Group, has secured a contract for the provision of well-head maintenance services with a North Sea Operator.

From its workshop in Kintore, Aberdeenshire, Scotvalve will also manage repairs and the replacement of ageing infrastructure, through to the manufacture of new and bespoke parts.
