Glacier Energy announces further appointment to grow inspection business

Glacier Energy, a leading international provider of specialist products, services and engineering solutions for energy infrastructure, has appointed Mark Finnie as Operations Manager & Technical Authority within its Inspection Services division.

Mark, who has over 18 years’ experience specialising in non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques and services, started his career as an NDT Technician at Professional Testing Services (PTS), which was acquired by Glacier Energy in 2014.

Since, he has held various other senior technical, operational and project management roles across the oil & gas and renewables energy sector and prior to joining Glacier Energy worked as an NDT Technical Manager for Bilfinger Salamis.

Commenting on Mark’s appointment, Tom Gollan, Director of Glacier Energy’s Inspection Services division, said: “We are delighted to have Mark on board as he brings with him a wealth of experience that will supplement the knowledge and expertise of our existing and highly specialised technical teams.

“To date, we have delivered over 400 NDT & inspection projects world-wide and we intend to continue growing our inspection capability and strengthening our market share across the oil & gas, renewables, petrochemicals and power generation industries.”

Mark added: “Glacier Energy’s Inspection Services division has an excellent reputation and track record across the energy sector, and I feel privileged to join the team at this exciting stage in the company’s development.”

At the core of the Glacier Energy brand, is the company’s deep-rooted capability amassed through the acquisition of some of the most technical and reputable brands in the industry. Formed in 2011, the company’s mission was to create a fresh alternative in energy services, providing customers with world-class technologies, exceptional service and enhanced value, all from one integrated provider.

In 2014, Glacier Energy acquired Professional Testing Services (PTS), an industry-leader of non-destructive testing and inspection services. This acquisition complemented Glacier Energy’s existing range of services and opened up new opportunities both for repair & maintenance, and in the support of new-build fabrication and assembly projects, in the oil & gas, renewables and power generation industries.

Today, Glacier Energy is made up of 4 divisions – heat transfer solutions, welding solutions, onsite machining solutions and inspection & NDT services. Operating throughout the UK, the company has a growing international presence with strategic partners operating in the Middle East, Caspian and USA.
