A U.K. offshore services firm has invested £1.7 million ($2.4 million) in specialist equipment to meet demand from clients across the globe.

Motive Offshore Group headquartered in Boyndie said it has added 22 items to its range of equipment during 2017.
The investment included the biggest Spooler (350Te) built by the company to date, which is being sent to Brazil for a long-term project.
Other key additions, which were built for specific client projects during 2017, included three specialist deck cranes designed; hydraulic power units, including the largest diesel unit manufactured in Motive history to date; various spooling winches; a traction winch designed for installing steel wire ropes up to 160mm diameter; and several space-saving stackable 7.5m subsea baskets, suitable for any type of debris recovery.
James Gregg, director at Motive Offshore Group, said, “Motive Offshore recognizes the importance of sustaining a competitive portfolio. Even when things get tough, Motive is committed to investing time and money to grow their fleet, guaranteeing the range on offer is meeting demand and presenting clients with a host of choices. 
“Despite 2017 proving a busy year for bespoke manufacturing projects for clients, we made the decision to ensure a plan was in place to safeguard time for work on new rental fleet additions.”
