Asset lifecycle support services provider Bilfinger has secured a multimillion pound contract with Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij B.V (NAM) and Shell UK, creating over 30 jobs.
The contract award will see Aberdeen-headquartered Bilfinger Salamis UK work with Bilfinger Industrial Services NL to provide topside inspection engineering and non-destructive testing services on the companies’ onshore and offshore assets in the UK and Netherlands.
Bilfinger Salamis senior operations manager Craig Taylor says, “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract which will allow us to support Shell UK and NAM with the delivery of enhanced inspection services. Securing this long-term contract was a major strategic target for us, and it is great to once again be working with Shell, who we have worked with extensively in the past.”
The initial award is for period of 3 years, with options to extend for a further 2 years.
The scope includes offshore work covering 53 satellite platforms in the Southern North Sea (both in the UK and the Netherlands); onshore facilities in the UK, including Bacton; onshore facilities in the Netherlands, including Den Helder, and the Kroonborg maintenance vessel for supporting offshore work.
“Working across Northwest Europe on onshore and offshore assets, this award consolidates our position as a leading international industrial services provider to the energy industry,” says Craig.
“It is fantastic to be able to introduce our advanced inspection engineering experience to the Netherlands, complementing our sister company Bilfinger Industrial Services’ extensive service range.”
