A north-east company that specialises in protective coatings has completed a five-figure project on a “unique” well intervention system.
Davidsons Blast Services (DBS), a family-run business based in Peterhead that operates in the oil and gas, marine and subsea industries, was awarded the contract by Maritime Developments.
The firm was contracted to blast clean and apply topside paint to a new flexible pipe deployment and retrieval system developed by Maritime for subsea pipe manufacturer Magma Global.
Bruce Davidson, managing director for DBS, said: “Our premises in Peterhead were custom built six years ago and in that period we have concentrated our time and efforts on ensuring that DBS’ first-class facilities, together with our expert dynamic coatings team, are the best fit for today’s ever-changing innovative structures.
“Our purpose-built facilities offered Maritime Developments an ideal combination of a large blasting hall and a climate-controlled paint hall, ensuring optimum conditions for delivering a successful coatings project.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Maritime, having carried out a number of projects for the company in the past.”
