EODEX opens first Scottish base at Moorfield’s Aberdeen Energy Park

EODEX, which specialises in the safe and environmentally friendly removal and disposal of unexploded ordnance (UXO) around the world is opening its first Scottish base at Unit 2 of the Innovation Centre and has agreed an initial one-year lease.

The firm operates worldwide and whose main UK operational base is in Portsmouth, supports offshore and underwater projects by offering the very latest in world-class, capabilities to deliver safe UXO disposal solutions, to support any offshore or underwater project.  It also provides precise explosive cutting systems for underwater decommissioning projects.

EODEX’s Aberdeen base will concentrate on projects in the North Sea and Scottish waters. It will serve as a hub for three employees initially, but this is expected to increase as the UK and global economy transitions from oil consumption to renewables, a shift set to increase the demand for EODEX’s sustainable technologies.

Bernie Morrison, executive director of EODEX, said: “Green energy is the way forward and seabed operations to locate, classify and safely dispose of UXO’s has grown considerably following the increase in global demand for renewable energy development.

“The growth in the renewables sector in Scotland and globally brings enormous potential for our business to grow and develop from our Aberdeen base.

“The new office provides the perfect location and has everything we need to provide our team with a positive working environment together.”

Hugh Canham, head of asset management at Moorfield Group, added: “This deal is yet another boost for our reputation as a key business location within Aberdeen and the North East region. It is testament to the quality of our workspaces that dynamic new occupiers like EODEX recognise the value in the flexible office solutions that we have available here at the Parks.

“As pandemic restrictions start to ease, we anticipate increased occupier demand for space at the Parks. We provide occupiers and their staff with the perfect safe office solutions within a spacious and green environment, ideally suited to support health and well-being, the vital importance of which has been highlighted over the past 18 months.”

Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks comprise 200,000 sq ft of multi-let office and industrial space for more than 80 companies and a workforce of nearly 2,000 employees in the Bridge of Don area of Aberdeen.

The Innovation Centre offers occupiers a modern serviced office centre that provides a mix of two to ten-person serviced office suites on highly flexible terms. The park offers ample car parking and electric charging points. It is conveniently located, approximately three miles north of Aberdeen city centre and close to the Aberdeen Western Periphery Route.
