OEM Group appoints engine expert Malcolm Christie

August 2017

OEM Group has appointed industry veteran Malcolm Christie in a senior technical support role in response to growing its UK and international business.

Mr Christie has more than four decades’ experience in the marine, and the oil and gas industries and joins OEM Group from 41 years at Turner Engine Powered Services where he latterly held the position of technical estimating manager for nine years.

Mr Christie is a time served experienced engineer who started his career as an apprentice diesel engineer before going on to hold roles including service engineer, workshop foreman and technical engineer. He has also worked internationally on oil and gas projects in the Middle East, Asia, Far East and the United States.

He has experience in leading a number of large-scale global projects which have harnessed tangible results including projects on drilling rigs which required the main engines and generators to be upgraded to increase power output, with no increase in footprint. This also included upgrading and replacing associated ancillary equipment. Mr Christie successfully achieved this goal while increasing power by up to 50% for each marine package. These projects were completed on time and in accordance with Class rules and strict emission regulations.

Based at OEM Group’s Aberdeen headquarters, Mr Christie will be responsible for all levels of the tendering process, providing technical assistance to OEM engineers and customers. He will also carry out cost analysis and technical quotations for large projects.

Mr Christie said: “OEM has seen some fantastic growth in the last few years, despite such a difficult operating environment. This really demonstrates the robust plan and reliable products and services they are providing to clients all over the world. Working for such a vibrant and experienced team was something I really wanted to be a part of.

“I look forward to helping this international specialist in the oil, gas and marine services firm company build on its existing success.”

Barry Park, OEM Group managing director, said: “Malcolm’s breadth of experience and knowledge of the oil and gas industry is invaluable and we are thrilled to welcome him to be an integral part of OEM Group’s future.

“He has a successful record in this sector has already hit the ground running helping us with several engine and fuel maintenance tenders. He knows an incredible amount about engines and the most efficient ways of operating them whether on land or offshore. He is a huge asset to the team and we look forward to seeing the results we know he will produce.”
