Ocean Kinetics was established in Shetland in 1992 by John Henderson to specialise in marine engineering solutions.

The History of Ocean Kinetics

Born in Shetland, we have expanded to become the local engineering experts in fabrication, energy, renewables and fishing and aquaculture.

Ocean Kinetics’ first purpose built buildings were opened in 1998 in Lerwick, Shetland. As the company grew, an extension was added in 2000 and additional stores built in 2002.

To meet the demand from the energy industry, Ocean Kinetics moved into a brand new custom-built building in 2012, based in Lerwick. The new building gave Ocean Kinetics the opportunity to invest in cutting edge technology for the workshops, as well as a comprehensive stores open to trades and the public.

Ocean Kinetics are now able to provide complete turnkey engineering services, with a dedicated team of project managers, designers, engineers, trades and support staff.
