The Aberdeenshire-headquartered STATS Group opened a new intervention engineering and technical support hub and recruited two pipeline intervention services team members.
STATS invested in a new facility in Kendal, Cumbria, (UK) which will be the focus of its technical and operational support, coupled with research and development work for its hot tap and BISEP product lines.
Martin Wilson heads the 2500sq ft office and research base up in the newly created post of director of intervention services. Dr. Mark Burton, technical director of intervention services, supports him.
Wilson spent 23 years with Furmanite, working predominantly in the pipeline intervention and integrity sectors in a variety of roles. During that time he led Furmanite’s UK design team, was technical group manager and latterly global technical support director for pipeline intervention, supporting the development and expansion of the company’s US$70 million pipeline intervention service line.
Burton hold a Ph.D in mechanical engineering and is a former lecturer at Southampton University’s faculty of engineering and applied science. Over a period of 21 years he has held various senior engineering positions with the Furmanite Group, including UK engineering manager and most recently global director of engineering.
STATS recently invested US$1.6 million (£1 million) in training centers located in Kintore and Inverurie.
