MatthewsDaniel, a global provider of specialist services for the marine and energy industries and applicable insurers, has announced the opening of a new office in Aberdeen.

The commitment to Aberdeen will allow MatthewsDaniel, which is a Bureau Veritas Group company, to enhance its offering to North Sea clients, providing them with the solutions they need while many make their way through the energy transition.

David Cox, MatthewsDaniel CEO, says, “We see this move as one that will enable us to not only better serve our valuable North Sea clients, but also grow the organisation in an important market. Aberdeen and the North Sea have a rich oil and gas history, and we are excited to play a part in the next chapter of that story as organisations look towards field and asset decommissioning, as well as renewable energy.”

“The focus of this new office will be on the execution of our North Sea and European marine warranty surveying (MWS) and risk assessment operations, with the region possessing the expertise required to deliver rapid solutions to our clients in this key offshore energy hub. These are exciting times for the North Sea, and opening this office is an investment in the industry and the skills that the workforce here have. I have no doubt our new office in Aberdeen will enhance our already strong relationships with our existing clients, as well as future ones,” Cox continues.

The new office is based in Tullos where MatthewsDaniel staff will work alongside colleagues from Bureau Veritas and Bureau Veritas Solutions Marine and Offshore, giving them access to a greater depth of resources, including engineering and maritime assurance expertise.

Operating since 1962, MatthewsDaniel’s experts are world-renowned in conducting specialist technical reviews both onshore and offshore for critical project phases and activities, employing a well-researched and quality-assured approach to identify and advise on measures to mitigate and minimise risk.

The company was acquired by world-leading testing, inspection and certification company Bureau Veritas in 2014.
