offices around the world
research papers presented at technical conferences
We are a team of highly skilled engineers from a variety of disciplines with a proven track record in solving the most challenging problems; applying unparalleled domain expertise, top notch analytical skills and a practical understanding of hardware and installation to design inventive solutions for energy infrastructure.
This has seen us enhance operations in late life oil and gas, transfer our expertise to create efficiencies in fixed and floating wind, and pioneer leading edge initiatives to support decarbonisation.
Technology innovation is what drives us. Finding new commercially viable solutions to industry challenges is something we have been doing for decades. With the real threat of climate change, we are playing our part by using this expertise to develop technologies to help secure a sustainable energy future.
We like to get to know our clients and that often means being close to the action. As our business has expanded into new regions, so have we, and we now have teams in many of the major offshore energy hubs around the world.
Our offices are set up to enable seamless operation across all locations. This means we can offer clients access to all of our talent and experience globally, a resource pool of over 200 engineers. This allows us to build the optimal project team with the right mix of local and technical expertise for the job, no matter where they are located.
At the heart of everything we do is the belief that we should operate in such a way that we can provide a sustainable, safe and great place to work while delivering services and products to our clients which exceed their expectations. We strive to be “best in class” and our ability to deliver on this is driven by all aspects of QHSE – it is a cornerstone of our business.
2H was named after its two founders Hugh Howells and Steve Hatton back in 1993 when they established the company in the UK. What started as a two-man business in a spare bedroom is now one of the largest specialist engineering companies in the energy business. Take a look at some of the key projects and milestones that have shaped our growth through the years.
