OEG Offshore Blown Away By Successful First All Energy Conference Participation
Oil services firm OEG Offshore (OEG) is celebrating a successful first exhibition at this year’s All Energy conference.
The Aberdeen-based firm – which specialises in the design, build and rental of cabins and cargo-carrying units for the offshore oil and gas market – was one of more than 450 companies showcasing its services and products on Wednesday and Thursday of this week at the UK’s largest renewable energy event, held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Senior management from OEG’s Aberdeen base attended the show to provide on-hand technical expertise and advice to delegates visiting their stand.
Earlier this week the company announced it had secured a £2.2 million deal with Siemens for the London Array project. Upon completion, it will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm scheme. OEG will deliver specialised equipment modules for use during the first phase, which will be located in the outer Thames estuary.
Craig Russell, OEG Offshore’s Commercial Director, said: “This was the first time OEG has participated in All Energy and we experienced a high level of interest in our services and products during the course of the event.
“Securing the London Array contract marks OEG’s continued growth into the renewable energy industry and demonstrates our ability to deliver on a large scale project that will have a significant impact on the UK’s offshore wind farm provisions. We recognise that renewable energy is a rapidly growing industry and the obvious synergies between it and the oil and gas sector has allowed us to transfer our skills easily into this market.
“The significant number of enquiriesabout our modules and containers at All Energy indicates a growing awareness of our business and services within the renewable energy market and we intend to establish the same kind of long-standing relationships within this sector that we have already formed in the oil and gas market.”
