KenzFigee now has a market position in the UK and will provide its expertise, capabilities and support services from its hub in Aberdeen, Scotland.
The company has chosen to expand its services to the UK to cater for the growing demand for offshore equipment and support in the emerging markets of decommissioning and wind power. It aims to contribute to the success of its clients by providing specialist crane solutions, innovative offshore equipment systems and support engineering services, such as maintenance, refurbishments and fast response repair, locally.
KenzFigee offers a full range of services for new build installations, from design through to completion, which includes engineering, planning and project management, logistics, construction, and servicing.
KenzFigee CEO Jan-Pieter Klaver said: “Our position in the UK will provide an opportunity to work more closely and efficiently with our clients in this region.
“Positioning our products and services closer to our UK clients will enable us to enhance operational support and to further improve safety and productivity of our clients’ operations. KenzFigee UK operations will be led by Barry Stewart, who has over 20 years of international experience in various organisations across multiple industries and will further strengthen our presence as a specialist equipment and service provider for lifting and offshore equipment systems in this region.”
KenzFigee UK vice-president Barry Stewart said “This is an exciting time for energy in the UK, with tremendous opportunities across oil and gas operations, decommissioning and the growing wind energy markets. We will look to create openings to implement innovative bespoke integrated technical solutions to improve efficiency and enhance predictability.
“In short, we will partner with our clients to design fit for purpose engineering solutions to suit the specific needs of operators and asset owners. I’m looking forward to working closely with our clients and to assist with further improving their safety and operational efficiency. We are now in a time of the ‘next generation’ of energy companies and we should all be prepared to be innovative visionaries.”
