RentAir Offshore and ATR Power Solutions merge

Keith Moorhouse

RentAir Offshore and ATR Power Solutions have effectively merged to become one company, offering a broader service to the global energy industry. This follows the successful merger of their parent companies, Centurion Group and ATR Group, earlier this year.

The new combined business, which will trade under the Rentair Offshore brand, brings together the complementary expertise, products and services of both companies in the rental of specialist air compression, steam and power generation equipment to support oil & gas production, well testing, fabric maintenance and renewables.

Robbie Garden, Divisional Director of Rentair Offshore, will continue in this role, working alongside Commercial Director, John Cooper – formerly Divisional Director of ATR Power Solutions. George Mess, Operations Director, will continue to provide technical support to the business.

Mr Garden said: “Under this merger, the position of both businesses is significantly strengthened through enhanced and increased capability and capacity in what continues to be a very challenging market. A wider service and product range, with combined and complementary technical expertise delivered globally, offers greater efficiency and added-value to our customers as they continue to seek to rationalise the supply chain and drive down costs.”

Adding the complementary products and services of ATR Power Solutions to Rentair Offshore’s global reach through bases in Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth, Netherlands, Singapore, Australia and the United States of America opens up new opportunities for both companies. Equally, RentAir Offshore will benefit from being able to tap into the ATR Caspian business located in Baku, Azerbaijan.

In Aberdeen, ATR Power Solution employees are transferring to Rentair Offshore’s premises in Dyce from where the merged business will operate as of today, Monday 3 October.

Keith Moorhouse, chief executive of Centurion Group, said: “After only a little over eight weeks, we are already seeing the benefits from the merger of Centurion and ATR Group. The combination of two of our businesses, RentAir Offshore and ATR Power Solutions, builds on what has been achieved so far through a broader range of products and services available globally and delivering much more cost-effective solutions.”

Centurion Group and ATR Group merged on 27th July 2016, creating a global player in the oil and gas rental and services market. The combined group, headquartered in Aberdeen, has a turnover in excess of £100m and operates from bases in Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth, The Netherlands, Azerbaijan, Singapore, Australia and the USA.
