Vessel maintenance and standby
Two TechnipFMC Diving Support Vessels (DSVs) utilised the new Aberdeen South Harbour early in 2023. One vessel was in for her winter maintenance period and the other for a standby period. TechnipFMC was very satisfied with the port facilities and overall experience. The proximity to its office, client base and supply chain was extremely convenient. It meant the company was able to facilitate a number of value-adding engagement visits to both vessels.
“Based on this good experience, we plan to further use the Aberdeen South Harbour on an ongoing basis. It promises to be a tremendous asset to the Aberdeen area.”

We will continue to play a key role in the oil and gas supply chain by:
- Supporting existing and future oil and gas developments while the industry decarbonises in line with the North Sea Transition Deal and plays a vital role in energy security.
- Supporting energy operators’ transition to low carbon energy by maximising opportunities in offshore wind and hydrogen.
- Investing in green infrastructure such as shore power and future fuels to reduce the carbon footprint of the port and its customers.
