MEMBER NEWS: EODEX expands operations at Moorfield’s Aberdeen Energy Park

Green unexploded ordnance disposal company grows operations at the Enterprise Centre

EODEX, which specialises in the safe and environmentally friendly removal and disposal of unexploded ordnance (UXO) around the world, has expanded its operations at Aberdeen Energy and Innovation Parks in the Bridge of Don, having agreed a new two-year lease with Moorfield Group, the Parks’ owner and landlord.

Having been based in the Innovation Centre for just over a year, EODEX has now relocated to a larger office suite in the Enterprise Centre on the Energy Park in Bridge of Don. The business has taken the ground floor Unit G8, which can accommodate up to eight people and offers additional meeting space. The business has the option to upsize further as required.

EODEX has experienced strong growth over the past year, growing its headcount from three to eight in Aberdeen, with hires expected over the coming months.

The company supports offshore and underwater projects by offering the very latest in world-class capabilities to deliver safe UXO disposal solutions and also provides precise explosive cutting systems for underwater decommissioning projects. Its #StopSeaBlasts campaign has been spearheaded by actress and environmental campaigner Dame Joanna Lumley.

Bernie Morrison, Executive Director of EODEX said:

“As the UK and global economy transitions from oil consumption to renewables energy development, we have seen a rapid growth in demand for our sustainable technologies. Having started with just three employees in Aberdeen last year, our team has more than doubled and we anticipate further growth over the next year.

“We were keen to grow our business on the Energy Park and our new, larger office space in the Enterprise Centre is ideal for our business requirements.”

Hugh Canham, Head of Asset Management at Moorfield Group added:

“This deal is great news for the Parks and for Aberdeen’s economy in general. It is yet another boost for our reputation as a key business location within Aberdeen and the North East region.

“The Enterprise Centre offers the ideal workspace for a forward-looking, ambitious and hard-working business like EODEX and we are delighted to see them continue to grow and develop with us.”

Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks comprise 200,000 sq ft of multi-let office and industrial space for more than 80 companies and a workforce of nearly 2,000 employees in the Bridge of Don area of Aberdeen.

Set at the entrance to the Energy Park on Exploration Drive, the Enterprise Centre is the park’s flagship office building and offers a variety of flexible office solutions, including serviced offices, co-working space and virtual offices, with generous car parking directly opposite Grub café. It is conveniently located, approximately three miles north of Aberdeen city centre and close to the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.

Knight Frank and Ryden are joint agents for Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks, which is managed by Avison Young, with the Park Manager being Cherry Paton.

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.
