The new base, which currently employs five staff, will look to further employ 5 people within 6 months and look to increase to a team of 30 - 40 staff within two years.

The new facility, which is based close to Wick John O’Groats Airport, is in prime position to access the local skill base developed over the last 50 years at Dounreay. The organisation will also be running with both the Apprenticeship and Graduate programmes which they currently run at their Aberdeen head quarters. 

The location will enable PSS to diversify into the renewables market for wave, tidal and wind energy. Located just off the east coast of Caithness, the development of the Smith Bank and Beatrice offshore renewable wind energy sites presents opportunities for investment to support this emerging industry. A new PSS office in the North of Scotland would be well placed to provide engineering services and long-term maintenance and support for all renewables projects in the North as well as expanding our service offering to the Oil & Gas industry.
