The business also supplies a variety of camps to the oilfield market. The skid-mounted camps it provides come in a range of specifications dependent upon regional usage and the client’s preferences; the primary design requirement is for the camp to be hardwearing so it can cope with constant transportation in off-road areas.

These include a comprehensive range of modular buildings, which are used in all oil applications from geophysical exploration through to drilling and on to downstream refining. Built with the harsh environment of an oilfield in mind, the buildings are of the highest standard suitable to the conditions they will be subjected to.

The key to the success of these projects is build quality; Specialist Services’ staff has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the safety rules and regulations relating to the offshore oil industry, which ensures the highest quality. The organisation’s well-trained and highly qualified engineers and modern manufacturing facility mean itis in the best situation to provide cost effective services and the construction methods conform to the specifications set by Safety of life at Sea (SOLAS) 1974 regulations, which were implemented by various standards organisations such as the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Lloyds, Det Norske Veritas and Bureau Veritas. The company’s health safety and environmental (HSE) policy has the objective of preventing all accidents, near misses, property loss, industrial health related illness and to minimise environmental damage that may be caused as a result of Specialist Services’ projects. Periodic reviews ensure that the policy is being successfully implemented and that it is suitable and effective.

Understanding the importance of tackling environmental issues and maintaining the high level of quality that sets it apart from its competitors is key to Specialist Services’ future success, but it is just one way in which the company is looking to progress. Specialist Services is constantly looking at ways to lead the industry and guarantee it is consistently providing its customers with quality and value.
