EnerMech Secure £10 Million Marathon Oil Crane Contract

EnerMech Ltd has won a contract worth an estimated £10 million ($16.5M) to provide crane operations and maintenance for Marathon Oil UK Ltd.

The contract covers Marathon’s North Sea platforms, Brae Alpha and Bravo and East Brae, and runs for five years with an additional five year option.

The Aberdeen-based mechanical services company will also provide Marathon with crane maintenance, mechanic and operator crews, supply and store crane spare parts and lifting equipment inspection services.

The workscope also includes the supply of lifting equipment, engineering and technical support and provision of onshore support staff.

EnerMech managing director, Doug Duguid, said the company’s vision and the multi-million pound investment in developing a single site facility in Aberdeen, was beginning to pay dividends.

Mr Duguid said: “This is the first significant crane services award we have secured in the UK from a new customer since we established the EnerMech group, although we have had a number of renewals of important contracts we inherited with the acquisition of SMS.”

EnerMech say they will create an additional 10 jobs as a result of the Marathon contract win which starts with immediate effect.
