Cape has been supporting installations in the UK offshore region for over 30 years. We currently employ around 1,200 people in the region in management, support and on-site roles, and offer a full range of specialist fabric maintenance services, including access, painting, insulation, industrial cleaning, inspection, and deck operations including helicopter landing officers - for clients such as BP, Total, Shell Northern Plants and Perenco.

Cape works closely with UK Oil and Gas, the Offshore Contractors Association (OCA), the Health and Safety Executive and several other leading industry bodies, to ensure safe working practices across its operations, particularly important when working in the northern North Sea's low temperatures, high winds and rough seas. We also work with the UK Decommissioning Forum to establish safe and environmentally friendly ways to decommission offshore.

In addition, Cape Environmental Services is our industrial cleaning arm, and brings over 40 years' experience and industrial cleaning expertise to a wide range of offshore oil and gas clients in the UK and beyond, including BP, and Nexen. Safety, efficiency and environmental impact are key considerations, and we work to internationally recognised ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.

Our services range from high-pressure water jetting and chemical cleaning, to high airflow vacuum and waste management, often in hostile, potentially hazardous working environments. Our specialist management team works with clients to establish achievable goals and reduce unnecessary impact on the environment, and wherever possible, we look into ways to provide our services more efficiently and to higher safety standards.

Across our offshore portfolio, we establish, develop and maintain excellent relationships with our clients by keeping in close and regular contact, aligning our expertise and experience with their key objectives, and continuously looking into fresh, forward-thinking ways to improve safety, reliability and efficiency in the work we conduct for them.
