Graeme will provide customers with technical support covering equipment rentals and custom engineered packages, for survey and ROV operations worldwide.

Based in Aberdeen, Graeme’s role has been created in response to increased customer demand for outsourced integrated technical support from initial pre-bid stage through to offshore execution, ensuring projects are delivered on time and within budget.

Allan Pirie, chief executive of Ashtead Technology, said: “We understand that selecting the right technological solution, with 24/7 support is critical to the success of our customers’ subsea operations. We will continue to expand our technical support team in response to current market challenges.

“Our customers are increasingly looking to their suppliers for ways to minimise technical and operational risks and drive down costs. Graeme will be integral to driving this forward, supporting our existing customers, developing new business opportunities and growing our service offering.

“Graeme’s extensive industry experience, coupled with his in-depth knowledge of survey and ROV equipment, will provide additional value to our customers.”

Commenting on his appointment, Graeme said:

Ashtead is a company with a clear vision and a highly skilled team who have helped shape the company into the industry leader it is today. I look forward to playing my part in the next phase of the company’s growth, as it looks to enhance its range of value-added services to support customer projects globally.
