ADC’s role in the Energy Transition

This was the vision of our chairman and Managing Director Douglas Hay when he founded ADC in 1985.



Working in a leadership position for a rig owner Douglas observed major shortcomings compromising the assets’ performance and crew safety.

He felt a duty to challenge the status quo to ensure real assurance was given. Most importantly protecting the safety of the crew, whilst improving the efficiency and environmental performance of the asset.

Today rigs and vessels remain critical to Energy projects as we transition to net zero. 

Be it deploying rigs or specialist vessels in Oil and Gas, Geothermal, CCUS, or WTIVs to build wind farms of the future, we are committed to ensuring these assets operate safely and efficiently with minimal environmental impact. In short our independent audits and inspections make this a reality.

We look forward supporting clients old and new as we evolve to play our part in the Energy Transition.

Our holistic approach

Undoubtedly maximising your investment whilst protecting your people and reputation.
