Integrated solutions specialists EnerMech is bringing forward a robust growth strategy for its UK operations after securing a string of new contracts in the first few months of 2021.
The Aberdeen-headquartered company has a strong pipeline of work for the year ahead with eight projects awarded in the last three months. The campaigns are a combination of new and extended contracts and will be split across its bases in Aberdeen, Scotland and Great Yarmouth, England.
The new awards include a first campaign for the onshore utilities market. The five-year multi-million-pound deal will see the company deliver crane lifting services to a significant onshore petrochemical facility based in Southern Wales. Other wins include a frame agreement extension with TechnipFMC for pre-commissioning services, delivery of shutdown and small bore tubing services for Chrysaor and the supply of rigging equipment and crane management services for Petrofac’s Duty Holder assets in the UKCS.
Ross McHardy, regional director for Europe & Africa said: “We have started the year with huge momentum behind our UK operations, delivering diverse lifecycle services for both new projects and long-standing customers. Our team has shown great resilience in maintaining safe operations across our regions and our approach to maintaining the highest standards while always seeking efficiencies has been recognised. Our work, particularly on pre-commissioning is a barometer of the sector, so it is encouraging to see new projects coming on stream and developments restarting.”
EnerMech was also awarded a two-year extension with leading Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) operator BW Offshore. A specialist team will supply equipment and crane services in addition to small bore tubing and flexible hose inspections for the Catcher FPSO following a successful two years on the project.
EnerMech is investing in a range of new technology as well as its specialist integrity and inspection team MInteg. The company recently appointed Steve Jones as its new Southern European general manager to help the business grow and diversify into wider energy and infrastructure markets from renewables and nuclear through to petrochemicals and rail.
Mr McHardy continued: “Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we are seeing renewed opportunities with upstream, downstream and midstream projects as well as emerging developments in the fast-growing renewable sector that we are well placed to support. We look forward to continuing to deliver operational excellence and expanding our footprint across the region.”
