Skeye targets North East business growth at the Innovation Centre

AM Sci Tech, a subsidiary of Hurstwood Holdings, the new owners of Aberdeen Energy and Innovation Parks, has secured a new occupier at the Energy Park, in Bridge of Don.

Skeye, an aerial survey and inspection company, has agreed a three-year lease on Unit 3 at the Innovation Centre.

The company was established in 2013 and currently have offices in England and the Netherlands. Skeye offers worldwide geographic data acquisition, industrial inspections, and high-end aerial imaging solutions. The team of pilots, data processors and project managers conduct manual and automated flights in challenging environments, using drone automation and AI, to minimise asset downtime.

With a global partner network and advanced technology, Skeye provides safe, cost-effective surveys and inspections, boasting global reach and local expertise, both onshore and offshore.

Jeanette Sturla, Business Director of Skeye said:

“We are focussed on targeting growth opportunities in Aberdeen and the north east from our new base at the Innovation Centre. The location offers everything we need to provide our team with a quality base and a positive working environment.”

Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Park Estates Manager, Cherry Paton added:

“The Innovation Centre offers Skeye top tier office space and we’re delighted to contribute to the growth plans of such a dynamic company. This is also a great outcome for our landlord and we’re confident the Innovation Centre is an ideal location for a company of Skeye’s calibre and we look forward to watching them grow even further.”

The Parks offer a varied mix of office solutions, including leased offices, serviced offices and coworking space, catering to the needs of occupiers of all sizes. They are conveniently located approximately three miles north of Aberdeen city centre and close to the Third Don Crossing.

The Innovation Centre is a bright, modern purpose-built office building in the attractive setting of the Energy Park on Exploration Drive. With recently refurbished spaces in a range of sizes set around a central, open-plan atrium, it makes the ideal headquarters for a growing company.

Elsewhere on the Energy Park, leading specialist in the decommissioning waste sector, Pheonix Decom has agreed a two-year lease extension on Unit G5 at the Enterprise Centre.

An Energy Park occupier since 2020, the company has strategically located licensed operational quayside outlets at the ports of Aberdeen, Peterhead and Lerwick, as well as large facility in Dyce.

Knight Frank and Ryden are joint agents for Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
