Maritime Developments appoints Operations Director

Maritime Developments, the back-deck equipment specialist for the energy industry, has appointed a new operations director and added another 15,000 sq ft to its operational base.

George Mackintosh has joined the business as operations director, switching from a similar position he held with a Peterhead based international energy and engineering services business.

George, who has more than 21 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, said: “The prospect of a new challenge with the opportunity to introduce innovative solutions to an ever-changing market was extremely appealing.

“Maritime Developments is a full-service business, from design and manufacture to installation and maintenance. There are exciting times ahead for the business due to the demand for our services and with the constant drive to enhance the safety of people working on vessels.”

Maritime Developments has also announced it has acquired a workshop, office and yard facility next to its main base at Wilson Street in Peterhead. The additional space will be used to house its rapidly-expanding electrical services division.

The subsea industry business also expects to grow from a team of 20 to 30 in the next year, with experienced staff and apprentices to be recruited.
