Aker Solutions Signs Up Aberdeen for Another Decade

Aker Solutions is redeveloping its manufacturing site in Aberdeen to strengthen its capabilities in the UK.

The company has signed a new 10-year lease for the Kirkhill Avenue site in Dyce, Aberdeen, which has served as a joint subsea equipment manufacturing and subsea services facility for Aker Solutions since 1993. It is now being developed to include a multi-product services area and electronics labs that should expand the company’s subsea services offering in the UK.

“We are making a step change in our UK business to better meet customer needs at an increasingly challenging time for our industry,” said David Clark, Aker Solutions’ regional head for Europe and Africa. “We have since the late 1970s pioneered subsea controls technology in Aberdeen, delivering more than 1,000 control modules to customers in the UK. The redevelopment will enable us to service these assets swiftly and effectively at a world-class facility.”

The revamp will include new office accommodation with enhanced welfare facilities for employees at the site. It comes after the company last year moved its main office in Aberdeen to a new complex near the city airport.

“This is a long-term investment for us that reinforces our commitment to Aberdeen and our customers in this important market,” Clark said.
