Aberdeen based Specialist Access firm, AquaTerra, has reported year on year growth since its inception in 2004 and is on track to achieve 10% turnover growth to £12million in its current trading year.

Managing Director, Peter Robinson, said 2014 had started strongly with high volumes of work secured for both their specialist access project management and their offshore rope access works, predominantly in the legs of offshore concrete structures. 

The companies training division is also thriving after securing a clutch of international contracts in West Africa and the Middle East.

2014 also marks the tenth year of business for AquaTerra and with further growth underway the company intends to capitalise on its celebrations by recruiting a number of key personnel.

Mr Robinson said the anniversary year is set to greatly increase the companies profile through a variety of events, a selection of advertising campaigns and a host of other activities across the region.

He added: “The market conditions are encouraging and we’re in a great position to continue offering our clients an exceptional service based on our specialist experience and our outstanding safety record. 

We’ve worked with major operators such as Shell since our inception and continue to have a very strong working relationship with all our clients.  As market conditions improve, so too does our activity level and it’s critical that we continue to secure highly qualified and motivated personnel to maintain and enhance our strong business performance.”

Originally launched as an offshore rope access company, the organisation has extended its service offering and now boasts three separate business divisions: Specialist Access, Health and Safety Training Services and a Work and Rescue Equipment division.

A decade in business has seen AquaTerra achieve a number of milestones including safe and successful completion of more than 9,000 projects across multiple industry sectors worldwide from their bases in Aberdeen and West Africa. 

The company is currently in negotiations for several new significant contracts to the value of £10million over the next three years.  AquaTerra Training Division alone has now delivered training and competence assurance to more than 20,000 delegates internationally taking the companies turnover during its ten years to more than £75 million pounds.
