MEMBER NEWS: Sustained growth prompts a move to a new home in Aberdeen’s Energy Hub for Cegal

November 21, 2023

Cegal, a leading global provider of cloud services, IT consulting and software solutions for the energy industry, is delighted to announce a significant milestone in its move to a spacious, modern office premises within Aberdeen’s award-winning Prime Four Business Park.

This strategic relocation comes as a result of the company’s sustained growth in the UK – achieving 23% revenue growth in 2022 coupled with above-target EBITDA earnings – reflecting their ongoing commitment to delivering top-tier services and technology solutions for their client base in the UK, and globally.

“We are thrilled to announce our move to a larger office in Prime Four Business Park,” said Mitch Sutherland, Managing Director at Cegal. “This expansion underscores our relentless focus on delivering world class service for our industry, and our subsequent growth within the UK market. We are delighted with the quality and comfort of the new space, which provides increased proximity and visibility to our customers. We are well on our way to hitting the 100-staff mark in the UK, making us the second largest entity in the Cegal Group.”

Reflecting on a string of recent contract awards, most recently from Ithaca Energy and Anasuria Operating Company in the UK and Petronas in Malaysia, Sutherland explained: “Cegal has a unique opportunity to provide significant value to the energy sector, which is seeing a growing commitment to value realisation through digitalisation and technology adoption. Cegal’s expertise in cloud, IT operations, tech consulting and software, coupled with our extensive domain knowledge in oil and gas and renewables, gives us an advantage in delivering for our sector, but to do that we needed the space to allow us to continue delivering the high levels of quality that our customers have come to expect, and to grow.”

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.
