Long Service Recognition

Long Service Recognition

Two team members of AS Mosley have been recognised for long service at a recent staff gathering.  Principal Analysis Engineers, Gordon Hay and Callum Methven, have been with the company for 12 and 11 years respectively.   They have grown with AS Mosley and have played a large part in its expansion over the years.

The pair were retrospectively congratulated for ten years of service, as part of a new scheme launched last year.

Andrew Mosley, Director of AS Mosley comments: “We are very lucky to have a loyal and enthusiastic team, who work hard to meet the demands of the business.  Gordon and Callum are no exception to this, and their commitment to the company and its clients is very much appreciated.  Not only are they diligent and professional in manner, but they both bring their own personalities to the team, and have a great attitude. They are supportive of their colleagues and they get on well with those around them.  Well done Gordon and Callum, and thank you for all that you do. We hope you’ll be here for another ten years!”

Relocation in the pipeline for AS Mosley

Relocation in the pipeline for AS Mosley

After three years of planning and sorting out legal issues, we are delighted to submit a planning application for a new office at Kingswells House, Kingswells. If successful, AS Mosley will be relocated and the new building will play home to our 16 staff, who work a hybrid model with 1 day in the office per week.

Steeped in history, Kingswells House goes back to the 17th century, as was  recently reported by the Press and Journal.  The building was previously owned by the Summerland Trust after being bequeathed by millionaire, Clark Findlay. The charity later moved out before the building was  purchased by director, Andrew Mosley in 2020.  The grade B listed building is now in need of major renovation which is required to stop further decay.

Since completion of the sale, Andrew has been working behind the scenes with Lippe Architects to plan the renovation of the building, adding a shiny new extension for the relocation of AS Mosley.  If successful at planning, works will start immanently, with the aim of completion over the next 18 months.

Andrew comments: "We've been looking to relocate for some time and been waiting for the right opportunity.  Kingswells House is a beautiful location set in 8.5-acres of land, which is ideally positioned for our staff and many of our clients.  The house has an interesting story behind it and it will be exciting to see the building brought back to life.  It will make an excellent workplace where the old and the new are brought together to create a vibrant space for all."

Planning has now been submitted and the outcome awaits.  Watch this space.

Oyne school car kit project success

AS Mosley recently sponsored Oyne School’s electric car kit project which saw them take part in the Grampian Goblins Race Day at Grampian Transport Museum last week.

Children taking part in Greenpower project
Oyne School car kit project

Oyne school children from P5, P6, and P7 took part in the project, where they competed against other primary school teams from across the North of Scotland.  It was the first time the school had taken part in the initiative, which is organised by Greenpower Education Trust.

Over a five week period, the children built an electric kit car from scratch, where they designed and built the body work, before driving their car at the final event on Friday 9th June.  Up against stiff competition, the school did well, narrowly missing out on third prize by just 0.21 seconds in the drag race section and making it to through to the semi-finals in the sprint race.

The project has been a great success for the school.  The children worked extremely hard and enjoyed every minute of the experience.

Over 5 weeks the project has involved curricular work in Literacy & English; Numeracy & Maths; Science; Social Subjects; Technologies; and Health & Wellbeing.  They have also developed the following 'Meta skills' important to Learning, Life and Work: Teamwork; Communication; Resilience; Self-management; problem solving; and creativity.

We loved being a part of this project and we're hoping it will inspire a few pupils to think about a career in engineering, as they progress in their learning journey.  We'll  look forward to seeing how next year's cohort get on. Well done to all involved.

We excited to be recruiting again for more graduates.  If you are about to graduate with (or currently hold) a bachelor’s degree in mechanical, civil, aeronautical engineering, naval architecture or related discipline, and are keen to embark on a career in analysis, then read on.

Farewell to Richard

Our team got together at  Thainstone House to say farewell to Richard Robinson, who recently retired.

We’re very grateful to Richard for the knowledge and expertise he has shared with us over the years. Although he has officially retired, we secretly hope he’ll keep his hand in and continue to support us on an ad hoc basis.

Richard, thank you for all your efforts over the years. We wish you a very happy retirement!

AS Mosley wins prestigious innovation award

AS Mosley picks up Business & Product Innovation Award at Scottish FSB Awards 2023

Callum Methven and Andrew Mosley, AS Mosley

We are extremely proud to have won an award from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) for Business & Product Innovation.

AS Mosley picked up the prestigious award yesterday (8th March) at the Voco Grand Hotel in Glasgow at a glitzy ceremony hosted by the FSB.

The award was given in recognition of developing WellScreen, and AS Mosley's involvement in Digital Twin technology.

WellScreen is a unique screening analysis tool that allows operators in the oil & gas industry to rapidly screen a number of wells at any one time. The tool tests for wellhead fatigue, and highlights wells needing more detailed analysis. The Digital Twin work was in collaboration with University of Strathclyde and Fugro, where we developed a methodology for a Digital Twin for Floating Offshore Wind Turbines.

Attending the event on behalf of AS Mosley, was Callum Methven (pictured), Principal Analysis Engineer, Andrew Mosley (pictured), Director, Eileen Cooper, Marketing Consultant of Limetree, and her husband, Andrew Cooper of Andrew Cooper Golf.

Andrew Mosley, Director at AS Mosley said: “This is fantastic news! We’re delighted to be recognised for the our innovative WellScreen tool, as well as our digital twin work.  WellScreen has taken over five years to get it to where it is today and it’s having a huge impact on our industry and literally saving operators hundreds of thousands of pounds. We are grateful to our clients, for giving us the inspiration and motivation to develop WellScreen. Thanks also goes to our Digital Twin partners and, of course, our staff and dedicated team of expert engineers, who have made this success possible.”

AS Mosley will go on to represent Scotland in the UK Final on 18th May 2023.
