Innovative Approach Leading Growth

An Aberdeen engineering and design business’s innovative approach to delivering maintenance and modification projects has led to it securing a major contract and expanding into other industry sectors. Step Change Engineering has been awarded engineering and support services with Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited. The agreement cements Step Change Engineering’s ambition to become a major tier 2 contractor in the North Sea oil and gas market.

Organised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen section, the Offshore Achievement Awards celebrate the significant contributions made by a wide range of businesses to the UK offshore energy sector.


Improvements in Engineering and Design in an Offshore Environment

Step Change Engineering has been invited to speak at the forthcoming Energy Institute monthly meeting in December. This event will focus on the historical approach to engineering and design of Offshore facilities, and ways in which significant improvements can be made in terms of costs and schedules. These improvements are essentially around Organisations, Behaviours, Workflow/Data Management, and Materials.


Industry Cost Reduction Need Driving Step Change Engineering’s Growth

The oil and gas industry’s need to reduce capital expenditure costs is driving growth at an Aberdeen engineering and design business. Step Change Engineering, established eight months ago, has secured a clutch of new orders in the last two months as a result of its ability to deliver significant cost and schedule savings to clients by efficient use of engineering systems and new technology.


Growing Engineering Business Delivering North Sea Cost Reduction Need

An Aberdeen-based engineering and design business is seeing rapid growth as it changes the way oil and gas engineering projects are delivered, whilst providing the industry with significant cost savings at a time when cost efficiency is taking centre stage. Established six months ago by Colin Bruce, an experienced chartered engineer in the oil and gas industry, Step Change Engineering is taking an innovative approach to delivering design and engineering projects for clients.


Offshore handheld scanning success

Step Change Engineering has recently used a handheld IR scanning device on an offshore FPSO capturing point cloud data. When used in conjunction with AutoCAD Plant 3D, the data captured has proven extremely successful for piping layout and structural design as well as for the production of fabrication isometrics. Scans can take between 5 and 15 minutes and are typically accurate to 0.5%. For further details and to see how the use of the handheld scanner may benefit your operations, please contact Step Change Engineering at info@stepchangeeng.com

Business Gateway Growth Pipeline

Step Change Engineering is delighted to announce that they have been selected for the Business Gateway Growth Pipeline. The Growth Start-up Team from Business Gateway provides support to businesses that have the potential for accelerated growth. We are proud to be chosen by Business Gateway. The funding comes at a time of rapid growth for the business as we focus on providing our clients with reduced costs and schedules for implementation of repair orders and minor modifications.


Intelligent application of handheld 3D scanners

Step Change Engineering is currently working with tablet based hand held 3D scanners to maximise the benefits of these tablet-based devices for clients with onshore and offshore assets. Combined with our technology, the tablet-based 3D scanners are simple to use and provide a means of instantly capturing data and performing detailed surveys on areas that are traditionally difficult to access. The benefits are multiple: Not only is there a reduced need for helicopter seats and beds offshore, the scanner can also eliminate the requirement for scaffolding and overside/underdeck working.
