Magma, which provides specialist offshore commissioning and start-up services, has grown from a business employing six people in 2011 to one with an 85-strong team today, many based on site at client projects.
It has moved from small city center premises to new offices at the Spires Business Park, that can accommodate around 60 people.
Magma, which invested more than £750,000 in the move to the new 4,000 sq ft offices, is currently looking to recruit around 20 engineers due to the prospect of securing further projects by the end of the year.
Magma has carved out a niche in the area of commissioning and start-up, the process of introducing oil and gas to projects whereby checks, inspections, certification and tests are carried out on components and systems before handover to the operator or duty-holder.
Additionally, Magma has developed a technology-led system to enhance safety and efficiency during key phases of offshore oil and gas production projects. The Completion Hand Over Management System (CHOMS) is a web-based tool designed to capture all completion and certification data for all parts of any individual project. with
