Maritime Developments, a leading provider of back-deck solutions for the global oil and gas industry, has appointed an electrical systems engineer to join its market-leading electrical department.

Richard Davies will be responsible for the design and development of controls for the company’s wide range of electrically-powered equipment, including reel drive systems (RDS), two- and four-track pipelay tensioners and winches.

The new appointment brings Maritime Developments’ electrical team up to eight, highlighting the remarkable growth of the division after it was established in 2012. The company is looking to add two further members of staff to the department in response to growing demand for its services.

Richard said: “Prior to joining the company, I had been working on Maritime Developments projects for a couple of years and really enjoyed what I was doing here.

“With time, I got more involved not only with the controls, which was my focus at the previous job, but also with the machine-building process.

“The company will have more control over what software goes into the machine and how it is configured, which will allow us to react more quickly if any changes are requested by the client.”
