Interocean Reinforces Significant Growth with New Premises

Interocean Marine Services (Interocean) has announced its expansion into new Aberdeen and Glasgow premises, reinforcing significant growth for the maritime experts.

Coordinated by FG Burnett, the new Aberdeen warehouse and workshop facility—which are located in Aberdeen’s City South Business Park—will act as an operational base for 45 of Interocean’s commercial, operational, finance, and support personnel. Developed by Dandara, the City South business park occupies 40 acres of land in Europe’s energy capital.

Targeting team growth of 20% over the next year, the Aberdeen expansion further strengthens the company’s position within the industry following the opening of a new Head Office in Glasgow in late 2023. Located in Glasgow City Centre, the new office situates Interocean in the heart of Scotland’s maritime and renewables hub.

Graeme Nisbet, Director and Head of Agency at FG Burnett, commented, “I was delighted to assist Interocean with its office and industrial requirements. Understanding Interocean’s brief was paramount to secure not just an excellent commercial deal but also to marry its operation with suitable premises. Although there were a few options available across Aberdeen, most required a compromise, and I believe that what City South offers as a whole provides an excellent platform for Interocean’s growth profile.”

Claire Bathgate, Head of Sales at Dandara Aberdeen, said: “It’s wonderful to see businesses like Interocean move into our premises at City South, which is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after business parks in the Aberdeen area. With offices and business units available, relocating to Portlethen offers the flexibility of expanding your business whilst still being centrally located, as City South sits just five miles south of Aberdeen city center and less than a minute from the AWPR.”

This announcement follows Interocean’s successful Elios 3 UT drone demonstration on the VALARIS Viking jack-up rig earlier this year. Committed to providing leading visual, conventional, and advanced NDT inspections, Interocean is one of the first companies in the world to offer this technology.

Reflecting on the company’s recent growth, Interocean CCO Alex Clark, added: “Over the last year, we have committed to significant investment in our technology and infrastructure to ensure we continue to deliver leading services across the energy and maritime industries. In line with our company values, it was important for our new Aberdeen facility to meet the highest quality standards, with a particular focus on sustainability and energy efficiency, so we are delighted to have worked with Dandara and FG Burnett to ensure these requirements were met.”
