Since its incorporation in December 2018, Aberdeenshire-based start-up Legasea has grown from a concept into a fast-growing business, that is leading the oil and gas sector in how it manages waste. Having recognised that a linear system is no longer a viable or sustainable option.
Legasea utilises a circular economy system, which sees one company’s waste being refurbished and reused elsewhere. Specialising in production systems and controls, and offering a range of electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical engineering systems, Legasea operates across a wide range of markets, including subsea oil and gas production, drilling, topsides, and renewables.
The company’s key objective is to act in a sustainable manner, and their overall strategy is to provide a ‘shore to store’ service to the oil and gas industry, taking subsea equipment that is no longer required, and finding routes to refurbish, recertify, remanufacture and reuse it, keeping as many components as possible in use.
