The investment comprises new office and workshop premises adjacent to the existing FMS headquarters in Aberdeen.

Offshore moorings firm First Marine Solutions (FMS) has made a six-figure investment to strengthen the firm’s survey and positioning service.

Mr Lafferty joins FMS with more than 14 years’ experience of the on and offshore energy industry, having most recently overseen the project management function at Fugro.

Mr McGruther previously held roles within Seatronics and Saipem.

FMS managing director Steven Brown, said: “This investment allows us to fit the final piece of the puzzle, positioning FMS as a fully integrated mooring and marine service provider, offering marine consultancy services, equipment supply and rental, and survey and positioning services across various sectors around the globe.

“The appointments of Carl and Marc are a fantastic addition to the FMS team, and I have no doubt that their extensive knowledge and expertise will not only strengthen our survey and positioning service but bring improvements to the whole business.”
