Together with its long-established branches in Aberdeen, Leith, Shetland, Invergordon, Orkney and Grangemouth, GAC UK said the new office enables it to better respond to its offshore and renewables client base in Scotland and beyond.

Adrian Henry, GAC UK’s general manager – oil, gas and renewables, said: "The strategic location galvanises our local coverage while guaranteeing first-class service to the burgeoning oil, gas and renewables market across the Firth of Tay.”

Investments at Dundee has seen the port become increasingly involved in the project logistics activities that are associated with the construction of offshore wind farms as well as the decommissioning activities in the UK Continental Shelf.

According to GAC UK, the potential upsurge in project work in the area was an important factor in deciding to open a port-based office.
