The Wood Group and the Magma engineering consultancy have agreed to work together to offer enhanced capabilities and greater efficiencies in delivering commissioning work.

Headquartered in Aberdeen and specialising in the field of commissioning and start-up, Magma’s services and software system will complement Wood Group’s global commissioning experience.

James Crawford, Managing Director, Wood Group PSN, said: “Through construction to close-out, Wood Group has extensive global experience of delivering commissioning services, which will be further strengthened by this new collaboration with Magma.  

“We recognise the niche Magma has carved out in the arena of commissioning and start-up, with a robust process, which complements our own capabilities to manage all the checks, inspections, certification and tests that need to be carried out on components and systems before handover to the operator or duty-holder.

Established in 2008, Magma has offices in Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth and Bucharest.

Paul Rushton, Managing Director, Magma Products, said: “The collaborative agreement creates a cradle-to-grave approach for projects and is an exciting proposition for everyone involved.

“Our expertise in start-up and commissioning, aligned to Wood Group’s broader scopes and greater capability, provides integrated cost-effective solution for clients; one built on a track record of project delivery.”
