MEMBER NEWS: Nucore Group continues expansion plans with new Dundee office

Nucore Group, a specialist engineering company which provides safety products and services for hazardous environments, has opened new offices in Dundee to support its ongoing company growth and diversification.

The Dundee facility, which will create up to a dozen new jobs, is an important next step for the Aberdeen-headquartered company which operates across a number of sectors including renewables, marine, oil & gas, petrochemical and the public and private sectors.

Combining the knowledge, expertise and best practice of both OTEAC and HVAC & Refrigeration Engineering, Nucore Group provides safety critical products, services and support from design, manufacture and maintenance to installation and commissioning.

From its base at Prospect 11, Gemini Crescent, in Dundee’s Technology Park it will deliver a range of services including Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, Fire, Safety & Security solutions.

“Dundee is an increasingly important player in the energy industry, and we look forward to supporting companies across the region operating in sectors such as offshore wind, oil & gas and marine as well as businesses working in fast-growing sustainability sectors such as hydrogen,” said Mike Bryant, CEO Designate and Director, Nucore.

“There are exciting opportunities ahead and we’re committed to playing our role in the energy transition and actively seeking to transfer our decades of oil and gas experience and know-how into renewables and new markets overseas.”

Nucore Group recently completed a restructure and refinancing deal with Beechbrook Capital to bring in fresh investment to support an ambitious growth strategy which will see it move into new sectors and geographical markets.

It is currently finalising plans for a third UK office in the North-east of England to service the renewables sector and it will increase its global presence by targeting further opportunities in the renewables sector and in Australia and Africa.

Nucore Group’s strategic growth will also see it invest in people, R&D, systems and its rental fleet.

The company has recently achieved Carbon Neutral status.

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.
