New Global Services Facility For GE Oil & Gas
GE Oil & Gas recently celebrated the completion of US$5 million in upgrades to its European drilling and production equipment repair, maintenance and refurbishment global services facility in Montrose, Scotland. The renovated facility consolidates GE’s previous drilling and production services operations in Aberdeen, Scotland, into one, central technology location.
The new site includes extensive warehouse facilities and a new production control systems (PCS) building. The 20,000 sq.ft. (1860 m2) PCS building houses a clean room, test and assembly bays and is fully equipped for all testing and flushing requirements on PCS equipment. It also houses a real-time diagnostic data link to GE Oil & Gas’ U.K. subsea production controls center of excellence, or SmartCenter, at Nailsea, near Bristol. The new 30,000 sq.ft. (2790 m) warehouse is fully racked and offers enhanced consolidation and protection for customer-owned and rental stock.
