Highland firm Global Energy Group sets up Norway base
Date:15 May 2012
Highland-based offshore engineering and fabrication firm Global Energy Group is establishing its first permanent base in Norway.
Subsidiary Global Project Services (GPS), which has been operating in the country for the past seven years, has secured premises near Bergen. The base will support work already being undertaken for oil operators in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. First Minister Alex Salmond announced the move during a visit to Norway. GPS has supported a range of projects in Norway including work on the Statoil Hammerfest liquefied natural gas plant and the development of the Statoil-Alstom carbon capture prototype at Mongstad, north of Bergen. It has also supported the construction of semi-submersible drilling platforms for Aker Solutions.
