"3T Energy and Survivex now virtually indivisible..."
The boss at 3T Energy Group said the training and technology organisation had “nailed” the integration of Aberdeen-based survival training firm Survivex.
Group president Paul Stonebanks claimed his expectations had been exceeded by the impact of Survivex’s addition to the group, which already included energy sector training firm AIS.
UK-headquartered 3T launched at the start of a whirlwind 2018, when AIS was brought together with simulator developer Drilling Systems, with investment coming from private-equity house Blue Water Energy.
When the landmark deal for Survivex was announced in November 2018, 3T said one of the UK’s largest energy sector training providers was being created.
At the time, Survivex, established in 2011 by businessman George Green, ran nearly 250 training courses to AIS’s 450 skills and competency programmes.
Mr Stonebanks said 3T would grow into a group with more than 300 employees, revenues of around £50 million for 2019, and offices around the world, including in London, Houston and Dubai.
Nine months on, Mr Stonebanks said he had been true to his word in retaining Survivex’s 70-plus staff members and had even added about 20 new faces post-acquisition.
He said AIS and Survivex were “very aligned” and had the “same values and ethos”.
The two businesses’ footprints in north-east Scotland have been consolidated in Survivex’s base in Dyce, which is equipped with pools for helicopter escape training, and fire and helideck training rigs.
