Bilfinger Salamis makes long-term investment in North East Scotland with new operations centre


Maintenance, modifications and services contractor Bilfinger Salamis UK has opened a new 27,000 sq. ft. operations and logistics site in Aberdeen, marking a long-term commitment to the region.

The Core will operate as the company’s northern hub for all equipment, plant and materials logistics to service onshore and offshore sites throughout the UK.

The investment, which the company pledged in 2019, follows several key contract renewals in the second half of 2020, which included multi-year agreements to deliver fabric maintenance and inspection services for two major operators.

The new facility, which will have office space for 70 employees when Covid-19 restrictions ease, will house the Bilfinger Salamis’ technology and digitalisation hub, conferencing facilities and dedicated training rooms for delivering product trials and customer demonstrations on-site.

It will also include a unit for maintaining the company’s fleet of advanced inspection and rope access kit.

Sandy Bonner, managing director at Bilfinger Salamis said, “The Core represents an investment for the next 20 years, symbolising our commitment to supporting our clients in the North Sea with the maintenance, modifications and operations services they need, while creating new opportunities to accelerate and deliver our digital solutions.

“Like every business in the sector, we’re focused on growing our footprint in renewable energy and this hub positions us well to deliver the services energy companies and contractors need.”

Bilfinger Salamis, which has supported the UK’s oil and gas industry for almost 50 years, employs 1,800 people from bases in Aberdeen, Groningen, Esbjerg and Great Yarmouth.
