Moorfield Group, the owner and landlord of Aberdeen Energy and Innovation Parks, has recently agreed lease renewal terms with subsea technology company Sonardyne International Ltd.

Sonardyne has been based at the Energy Park since 2011 and has agreed a new five-year lease on Units 12-14 at the Technology Centre in Bridge of Don. The space extends to 3,628 sq ft.

Sonardyne is a leading independent and global provider of underwater solutions for the offshore energy, defence and science sectors. The company was founded in 1971 and has built up solid application knowledge and engineering capacity over the past fifty years.

The space at Aberdeen is used for sales, training, equipment servicing and distribution. The company’s UK headquarters are based in Yateley, Hampshire, with a dedicated sea trials centre in Plymouth.

Barry Cairns, Vice President – Europe, Africa & South America of Sonardyne said:

“The Energy Park has been our home in Aberdeen for the past 10 years and we remain thrilled with the location and facilities which provide the perfect base for our on-going business activities.

“We’ve been impressed by the flexible approach taken by the landlord and parks management team to help conclude this deal.”

Hugh Canham, Head of Asset Management at Moorfield Group added:

“The pandemic has forced all occupiers to think again about the quality and flexibility of their property, so concluding this deal with Sonardyne is particularly pleasing and reflects the calibre of the asset we have here at the Energy and Innovation Parks.”

Aberdeen Energy & Innovation Parks comprise 200,000 sq ft of multi-let office and industrial space for more than 80 companies and a workforce of nearly 2,000 employees in the Bridge of Don area of Aberdeen.
