‘Adding’ Peace of Mind to Global Energy Consultants

Add Energy

About the client

Add Energy – Asset and Integrity Management in Aberdeen offer integrity management and maintenance optimisation of offshore production plants and facilities, power generation plants, FPSOs and drillships. The company was established more than 30 years ago and now has offices located across Europe, North America, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. The leading energy provider has enjoyed a period of significant growth, expanding its offices across the globe to meet continued demands of the business, with a significant increase in workforce, and three new offices in Aberdeen.

Client objectives

As a fast-growing and forward-thinking organisation, Add Energy required an IT solutions company who could not only offer fully managed support, freeing Add Energy’s internal team from managing the IT ‘help desk’, but also meet their security requirements, which involved processing large amounts of confidential data and information every hour. Having been let down by a previous supplier, Add Energy approached Nimbus Blue for this support and were pleased to hear that a locally-based company could offer all of the above, with opportunities to adapt and grow along with them

Services provided

The Nimbus Blue team developed a coherent IT support strategy for Add Energy that would give the global company the confidence to move forward with its growth, safe in the mind that its IT is managed securely and proficiently. This included:

  • Pro-Cover IT Support
  • Remote support
  • Backup
  • Cloud services

Add Energy were hugely impressed by David and his team’s ability to support them across the globe with cyber security measures. This meant adopting the right controls, supported by meaningful policies, and enforced through effective procedures, standards and baselines. This included:

  • Security audits
  • Security awareness training
  • On-going risk monitoring and management

Outcome & results

The adoption of Nimbus Blue as its IT partner has provided Add Energy with the capacity to grow and develop its service offering across the globe, providing a trusted and safe network across its IT systems, with an additional stream of security for data and cyber procedures. Peter Adam, Add Energy’s EVP of Asset & Integrity Management, said:

“We are thrilled to have expanded our global presence and offering across three new offices. David and his team’s expert advice and wealth of knowledge has been invaluable at this crucial time of our growth, and has allowed us to move forward up-scaling opportunities with ease and peace of mind. As we continue to evolve, we look forward to a continued relationship with Nimbus Blue.”
