An Aberdeenshire Energy sector service organisation has recently moved to a new purpose built facility to help with growth and high levels of efficiency. The business has moved to a bespoke new facility on 2.5 acres of land in Midmill Business Park, Kintore which offers extra yard, office and workshp space plus new large capacity overhead cranes.

Rigrun Europe Ltd and Brimmond Group plus sister divisions Preffered Marine and Pump Solutions cover the manufacture, rental, test, refurbishment & repair of a wide range of equipment and services including:

    Diesel and eclectic Hydraulic power units
    Umbilical reel and spooling winches

    Centrifugal and Wilden Pumps
    Flushing Units
    Motion compensation equipment and services
    Marine riser and guide line Tensioners
    ROV & umbilical services
    Bespoke design and manufacture

Established in 1999 and 1996 respectively, Rigrun Europe and Brimmond Group employ 25 highly skilled staff from a number of disciplines and fully support the Scottish modern apprentice scheme, with a number of established employees coming through this method.

Other divisions within the group are Preffered marine which holds the renowned Effer Crane franchise for the UK and Ireland region and Pump solutions, providing pumping equipment for all standard and turnkey requirements.

The new premises has test facilities allowing pressure tests and load tests of up to 1000 tonnes for Cranes, LARS and winch systems as well as storage facilities for clients to help create a one-stop shop  facility for many clients.

Alistair Murdoch, Managing Director for the group said: "Moving to this new facility has been the product of hard work by all staff and loyal customers, with this now being our third relocation to larger facilities due to steady growth over the years.  This new facility will now open new areas and plans for growth with both current and new potential clients.

"With the current testing conditions in the marketplace, we remain positive that we can now deal confidently with the challenges ahead due to both our new facility and extensive capabilities.
