Glacier Energy Services is expanding its industrial facilities in Scotland in support of ongoing growth in the energy sector, investing £1million and creating an initial 10 jobs with the opening of a new workshop and warehouse facility at Dalgety Bay, Fife.
The oilfield service provider has moved into a 15,000 sq ft facility at Dalgety Bay, bringing the capabilities of its offshore division closer to clients carrying out new construction and existing asset refurbishment and maintenance projects in the area.
And the group has already won new contracts, worth £1million across the supply chain which are being delivered from Fife, where recruitment for additional engineers and technicians is expected to continue during the year ahead.
Glacier's offshore division, headquartered in Aberdeen, provides complementary specialist technical services in support of inspection, repair and maintenance activities on existing assets, and new-build capital projects in offshore exploration and production.
Its industry-leading heat exchanger business Ross Offshore, pipe-cutting equipment manufacturer Roberts Pipeline Machining and technical support provider Site Machining Services will each operate from the base.
The facility, at St David's Business Park, is Glacier's second major investment in central Scotland following its purchase of Methil-based NDT specialist Professional Testing Services in February.
