Motive Offshore Group, specialist in marine equipment fabrication and rental, continues to consolidate its position as the leading provider of back-deck services, announcing a major contract win.
Awarded by TechnipFMC, a global leader in subsea, onshore/offshore, and surface projects, the contract represents the largest win to date for the Motive’s Spooling and Inspection division. With a workscope comprising global offshore inspection and wire rope services, the initial three-year contract includes the option for two, one-year extensions.
Division Managing Director, Ally Forbes explains the strategic importance of this latest award: “Since launching in late 2016, Motive Spooling and Inspection has consistently grown in reputation and activity.
“This contract reflects not only our expert inspection and wire rope services, but also our fundamental aim to continually internationalise our business.”
Motive Offshore Group Chief Operating Officer, James Gregg continues: “Our track record and continuous investment in capabilities via personnel and facilities has inspired industry confidence on a global basis.
“Working across 16 vessels world wide during this contract, our existing Spooling and Inspection team is now set to increase, with at least eight additional roles being created.”
Motive is a leading global solutions provider for the back-deck and beyond, specialising in the manufacture and rental of high-capacity winches, umbilical deployment, specialised subsea equipment and associated services to the onshore and offshore oil and gas and marine industries.
Launched in 2010 by James Gregg and Dave Acton, Motive Offshore Group is headquartered in Boyndie, Banff, Scotland, with additional offices in Aberdeen, Houston, Norway and the Middle East.
