The offices will be shared with Briggs’ sister company ARB WIND and will provide strategic access to the North Sea’s expanding renewable energy market in which Briggs has been operating over the last decade.
With the proximity of the Forth and Tay cluster of Offshore Wind Farms (including Inch Cape, Neart na Gaoithe (NNG) and Seagreen), the companies are ideally placed to continue supporting existing customers and other developers and operators based in the North Sea.
Collieson Briggs Briggs managing director, said: “With Briggs’ strong track record in port and vessel m anagement and subsea and environmental services, we hope to add value to the port and help boost the local supply chain.
