Ecosse IP


Ecosse IP (EIP) is an innovative provider of tooling and solutions for challenging offshore installation requirements. The company design, develop, build and operate a range of subsea equipment for offshore energy markets.

EIP was established in 2016 by Chairman Mike Wilson, an offshore installation expert with a track record in developing fresh and pragmatic subsea solutions to reduce risks and costs.

EIP was spun out of Ecosse Subsea (ESS) in 2018, after ESS was successfully sold to Oceaneering International along with the SCAR plough product family.

Targeting rapid growth, with offices in Brathens Eco Business Park in Aberdeenshire, as well as a modern R&D workshop and a yard for technology trials, EIP works with a range of global operators and supply chain companies. 

Ambient Lifter
Ambient Lifter allows accurate and safe subsea lifting. It can be deployed with vessel or platform cranes to increase their capacity, or with ROVs to multiply their lift capability by a factor of 20. Ambient Lifter Lite with an ROV can lift 10 tonnes and be configured for use in high current areas.

The PREP Pipe-Lay system can be used with lower cost vessels to lay pipe avoiding the fleeting tower arrangement normally required for pipelay vessels.

Deep-Lay is based on the same concept of Pipe-Lay, but enables cost savings for EIP customers via the deployment of lower grade pipe into ultra deep water.

Olympics Spoolbase
A modular spoolbase system for fabrication, storage, loading and transpooling of pipelines. Built close to the field location, it can save multiple days’ sailing to the deployment zone.

EIP’s patented technology allows cables to be laid more efficiently in between offshore wind turbines, particularly applicable to those further from shore.

Wave and Tidal
Wave and tidal technologies have been developed by EIP to generate power from tidal or freshwater flow and harness energy from the flow, rather than the outright velocity.
