Bridon to open new technical, commercial office in Aberdeen
ABERDEEN, United Kingdom -- Bridon International is launching a new operation: Bridon Aberdeen. Bridon Aberdeen will offer technical advice and support for companies operating in deep waters, providing strong and reliable ropes to be used for lifting and lowering equipment in the North Sea.
Bridon’s new Technical and Commercial office will become operational from December 2013. Major oil and gas operators are seeking lighter, longer and stronger ropes that perform highly in greater depths and more challenging conditions, and Bridon’s return to Aberdeen is geared towards meeting this need.
Bridon Aberdeen will increase the reach of Bridon’s Technical Centre where the most advanced offshore ropes are tested and developed, and Bridon Neptune Quay where the world’s largest and most complex offshore ropes are manufactured. It will also support recent investments in facilities, stock availability and offshore services from Bridon’s supply chain partners.
Bridon Aberdeen will allow customers quick and easy access to Bridon technical experts and ensure that Bridon is always on hand locally to support customer operations; be that through advice with rope selection, handling and installation, or offshore support with rope inspection, maintenance and troubleshooting.
As North Sea operations become more technically challenging and time critical, Bridon’s presence in Aberdeen will offer a significant advantage to clients involved in ongoing drilling and construction operations, as well as the technically demanding de-commissioning work which is becoming more and more a part of North Sea activities.
