Nessco doubles its turnover following a successful year

Oil and gas telecommunications company Nessco is set to double its turnover this year to £34m following a number of global contracts.

The Aberdeenshire-headquartered company has created more than 40 jobs this year and has plans to expand its 130 strong workforce by at least another 20 in 2012.

The company, which specialises in telecoms systems integration and services, has secured a number of key contracts in the last three months in the North Sea, Iraq, West Africa, Brazil and the Middle East worth more than £23m.

The work includes systems for both upstream Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessels (FPSOs) and downstream plants.
