Aberdeen-based specialist container and tank rental firm, Conserve Oilfield Services is investing more than £1.5m in new equipment to support international growth.
Conserve Oilfield Services, part of Centurion Group, is an established market leader in the rental of DNV and EN certified offshore containers, tanks, cargo carrying units, associated equipment and services for the global offshore oil and gas industry. The major investment sees the addition of more than 200 units to the firm’s existing fleet of equipment, expanding its range and ensuring it is well-placed to support its global customer base.
This month, Conserve took delivery of the first batch of the new units from manufacturers Rotherham-based Acorn Container Company and Irish firm Suretank.
The investment covers a range of equipment, including step-change baskets, half heights, IBC carriers, rigging stores, 10ft workshop containers, subsea baskets and Conserve’s uniquely designed safety chemical tanks. Conserve is extending its capabilities, providing new opportunities for the firm, by expanding its rental portfolio with the introduction of rigging stores and heavy-duty, extra wide open top containers.
These heavy-duty, extra wide – 9ft 6in compared with standard 8ft – open top containers are capable of taking loads up to 20t and feature a swing top rail for easy loading.
Managing director Chris MacPhee said: "This is a substantial investment and commitment in delivering new and additional equipment to our client base. We still have a confidence in the global market with the demand for our products and services continuing to grow both at home and overseas in conjunction with our group company, Centurion.
"We already have one of the youngest tank and container fleets in the North Sea and this investment adds further new units, enabling us to grow the business and offer increased availability and an extended range of equipment in the market."
