GE Oil & Gas has invested £4m into its subsea manufacturing facility in Aberdeen, Scotland, leading to the creation of 20 new jobs across 2014. This follows the recruitment of 30 new employees at the site last year, with the investment also expected to contribute to an increase in output, allowing the organisation to meet the growing demands of customers and their global subsea projects.
Rod Christie, CEO-GE Oil & Gas Subsea Systems, said: “As a centre of excellence for the manufacture and testing of subsea tree systems, our Bridge of Don site is pivotal to the sustained success of our organisation. Enabling us to meet the growing demands of our customers, this latest investment provides the plant with significant capability improvements, enhancing test and assembly activities along with allowing important safety and technology upgrades. It also allows us to generate new employment opportunities for the region.”
