A world-class name in specialist industrial services, specialist waste management services and process decontamination has reached an important milestone and announced the completion of its first contract in Dubai.

Denholm Environmental Limited has collaborated with fellow Denholm Energy companies Relay Engineering, SST-NDT and Petrasco Energy Logistics to complete the specialist cleaning of a FPSO slops tank – the company’s first-ever project in Dubai and its 30th FPSO tank cleaning contract worldwide.

In addition to 11 rope access specialists from SST-NDT in Bahrain, two ultra-high pressure jetting units and ten personnel were sent by Denholm Environmental from the UK, providing a turnkey solution which also has an enviable reputation for deep cargo tank cleaning to an increasingly global client base.

The news from Dubai represents another important extension of Denholm Environmental’s global reach and demonstrates the scope which has been added thanks to recent strengthening of UK foundations, including the acquisition of Carlisle-based specialist industrial services experts, Andidrain Ltd. The third acquisition in as many years, this took the company-wide headcount to 200 across Denholm Environmental’s Aberdeenshire headquarters in Inverurie and operational sites in Carlisle, Grangemouth and Invergordon, positioning the company for exponential growth at home and overseas.

Brian Ritchie, Managing Director of Denholm Environmental comments, “Our unrivalled capabilities in the hazardous waste sector were key to securing this contract in Dubai and we were delighted to assist our client with a carefully balanced combination of state-of-the-art equipment and market-leading expertise to successfully complete the scope of work in a safe, timely and efficient manner.”
