Our people are our company

The best of the best: Highly skilled and motivated, with access to cutting edge equipment and new technologies, they will inspire you.


Our experienced coded welders consistently deliver to the highest standards, whatever the requirement. Working in all materials, from carbon steels to duplex and exotic materials such as Inconel and Hastelloy; the welders are fully engaged with our certified quality management systems (ASME IX, EN 9606, AWS D1.1 and AWS D3.6M).


For over 20 years, our highly skilled fabricators have helped build Ocean Kinetics reputation for first-class engineering, by offering a range of expertise in everything from fish processing systems to structural steelworks.


Based in Lerwick and Aberdeen, our divers are fully-qualified tradesmen providing a complete diving service: surveys (including NDT) and inspections, underwater welding, construction, demolition and salvage. We use cutting-edge technology and an inspection-class ROV, offering clients cost-effective inspections and surveys to a depth of 300m.


Our professional and highly skilled office team makes sure that Ocean Kinetics day to day business runs smoothly.


We have in-house CSWIP/PCN qualified (level II minimum) inspectors and technicians. From visual inspection, to traditional MPI & DPI; to radiography and ultrasonics; our inspectors have a comprehensive range of equipment and certifications to support your project.
