Cape Industrial Services Ltd has awarded EnerMech a three year contract for the provision of plant and equipment support.
The contract, worth an estimated £4.5 million, covers the rental and supply of power generation and blasting, tooling, lifting and rigging equipment for Cape’s UK and Dutch North Sea offshore contracts, which has base locations at Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth and Den Helder in the Netherlands.
Aberdeen-based EnerMech will provide non-specialist plant hire for Cape’s main disciplines of coatings, insulation, access and cleaning in addition to options for servicing maintenance of Cape-owned plant and equipment.
EnerMech say its investment in high-end management systems, including EnerMech LIVE ® which gives clients clear visibility of costs and online access to safety certifications and equipment management, was a factor in winning the award.
EnerMech was able to demonstrate its use of industry-leading equipment, systems and procedures would ensure the highest safety standards are maintained and believes a strong alignment between both companies, but without any overlap in services, will strengthen the working relationship.
Up to six new jobs will be created by EnerMech, including engineering, lifting and service technician and admin posts.
EnerMech business development director, John Wingfield, said: “Cape were looking for more than just a supplier-client relationship and with our business strategy model similar to their own, both companies were viewed as a good match.
“We clearly demonstrated our ability to invest in new equipment and technologies and in our facilities and people and that proved an important factor in winning this tender in a competitive process.
“Both companies are keen to work collaboratively to bring forward innovative technologies and equipment which will improve safety and efficiency and we have identified opportunities to conduct reciprocal business.
“We have worked with Cape on an ad-hoc basis but this important award takes our relationship to a new level and we are looking forward to working together in a mutually rewarding partnership.”
Cape is an international leader in the provision of essential non-mechanical industrial services focused on the energy and natural resources sectors. With over 19,000 people in 28 countries, Cape reported revenues of £655.1 million in 2009.
