RotoJar invests ahead of global commercialisation in 2021
RotoJar is pleased to confirm it has furthered its ongoing intensive R&D investments with substantial key capital investments and appointments, enhancing business capabilities and preparing for international business success in 2021.
As a dynamic, fast growing technology and manufacturing business, we have made a further multi-million investment to strengthen and enhance our Research and Development, production engineering, assembly and testing facilities following a number of successful international field trials in 2020.
This investment provides the business with outstanding new headquarters in Dyce, centred in the heart of the global energy hub of Aberdeen. The bespoke facility will house state-of-the-art business facilities including a best-in-class engineering production workshop and an exceptional full-scale R&D testing facility, both of which will support our in-house technology, manufacturing and commercial development.
In the production workshop, investment into new leading-edge Mazak CNC turning and milling centres and a long-bed Colchester CNC lathe will allow the team to respond instantly to the demands of research and development testing and customer product support alike, with a focus on the rapid manufacture of precision components. This underpins our market leading capability to design, manufacture and test our revolutionary rotary technologies in-house to the highest of quality standards.
A research and development test facility investment sees the addition of a 5,000psi, 585 gallon-per-minute, 1000HP Gardner Denver flow loop to our already market leading, fully instrumented, 500 tonne rotary test rig, ensuring that full scale operational conditions can be replicated in the in-house test facility.
The in-house workshop facility has been further enhanced with a state-of-the-art Forum AMC make-up/break-out torque machine to allow RotoJar to respond around the clock to the needs of the offshore service business.
In addition to the investment in our facilities, there has also been significant growth within the team, doubling head count in the past 12 months and securing senior expertise and talent. The new positions strengthen the company’s management, production, and technical support teams. This additional experience will bolster RotoJar’s capabilities of development, manufacturing and testing of our rotary technology, products and services as well as providing exceptional support to our customers operating in the most challenging of environments.
Adam Ubhi, RotoJar’s Chief Technical Officer, said “The recent investments will fundamentally transform our ability to rapidly deliver design, manufacture and testing in-house. The financial rewards for our customers from gains in operational efficiency and expediency delivered by RotoJar are now unrivalled. We are really excited about the positive impact this will bring to the business and our customers over the coming period.”
Emma Kilner, Chief Financial Officer, added, “This significant investment marks a key milestone in RotoJar’s strategic growth plan and as a team we are looking forward to moving confidently into our next phase of growth with an expert team and industry leading facilities”.
Peter Moyes, Chairman, concluded, “We are very excited to now be ideally placed to build our global reputation of being first choice for pioneering rapid extraction technology, products and services in the well plug and abandonment and remedial fishing sectors.”
