Suretank has completed delivery of a range of custom-made mud cutting skips to Augean North Sea Services (ANSS) in Aberdeen, UK.

The mud cutting skips were tailor designed to meet the operational requirements set out by ANSS, and this recent batch of 250 units takes Augean’s fleet to 750 units.

Mark Pett-Ridge, sales manager for Suretank, said: “Augean is a fast growing operation in Aberdeen. We’ve been delighted to be able to work closely with all its staff to produce an engineered solution that meets the requirements of the waste treatment services it offers to rigs and platforms in the North Sea.

“Taking into consideration the requirements for both onshore and offshore operations we match these to meet DNV 2.7-1 certification. This recent delivery demonstrates our commitment to engineering great products that meet operational, logistic and health and safety requirements.”

Suretank has also acquired a majority ownership in Louisiana, USA-based manufacturer AmGulf Fabrication, LLC. The company has been rebranded as Suretank USA.

Having acquired a minority shareholding in 2013, Suretank has developed a strong working relationship with AmGulf offering its range of DNV 2.7-1 certified offshore tanks and cargo carrying units (CCUs) from the company’s facility in Houma, Louisiana.
