New Aberdeen base is opened by Great Yarmouth energy company 3sun

The rapid growth of Great Yarmouth energy company's order book in the North Sea has prompted it to open a base in Aberdeen.

3sun Group, which was founded in 2001, has recently won contracts worth �7m in the North Sea and expects its turnover to double to �15m by the end of the year on the back of higher volumes of offshore work.

The company, which employs 175 people, recently opened a new operational centre in Bergen, Norway, and it is currently looking at other UK and overseas locations.

As well as supplying high-tech products such as chemical injection units, 3sun also provides inspection services and site services such as installation and commissioning work on and offshore. It also provides engineering.

The North Sea contracts are for major engineering, production, installation and commissioning work.

Graham Hacon, managing director at 3sun Group, said: 'Our aim is to establish our presence in key strategic locations in the UK and Aberdeen is a core location for the continual growth of the company.

'By opening our office in Aberdeen, we are ensuring that we are available to our clients in the region at short notice.'
