The Briggs Marine Group is expanding with the opening of new office premises within the Port of Montrose on the East Coast of Scotland bringing opportunities to the local area.
The offices will be shared with Briggs’ sister company ARB WIND and will provide strategic access to the North Sea’s expanding renewable energy market which Briggs has been operating in throughout the last decade.
With the proximity of the Forth and Tay cluster of Offshore Wind Farms (including Inch Cape, Neart na Gaoithe (NNG) and Seagreen), Briggs and ARB WIND are ideally placed to continue supporting existing customers whilst also offering strong local content options to other developers and operators based in the North Sea.
Briggs Managing Director, Collieson Briggs commented,
“With Briggs’ strong track record in Port & Vessel Management and Subsea & Environmental Services, we hope to add value to the port and help boost the local supply chain. With a growing portfolio of Offshore Wind projects including Balance of Plant and Engineering Project Management services, we are pleased that we can offer first-class local content for Scotland’s offshore wind industry.”
ARB WIND’s Managing Director, Arran Bell elaborated,
“In addition to Briggs comprehensive marine services offering, ARB WIND’s experience in Statutory Inspections, Maintenance Services and Construction Support has potential to bring new employment opportunities to the area.”
Tom Hutchison, Chief Executive Officer of Montrose Port Authority commented
“We are delighted to welcome both Briggs Marine and ARB WIND to the Port. We have worked closely with Briggs for many years and know they will be a welcome addition to the local supply chain.”
Briggs Marine’s 50 year history has seen steady growth over the years and currently employs over 800 staff. Since joining the group in 2021, ARB WIND has been using its onshore wind experience to support the offshore wind industry.
