£85m orders for EnerMech

Aberdeen-based mechanical engineering group EnerMech has seen orders upwards of £85m after winning a series of international contact wins, extensions and renewals.

The cranes services provider has strengthened existing networks, as well as extended its global reach by winning new work in the Gulf States, Far East and the Caribbean.

In Azerbaijan, BP Exploration has renewed a contract held with EnerMech since 2010 for a further five years.

The contract now includes crane operations, maintenance and inspection services for 16 BP offshore pedestal cranes and two new platforms on the Shah Denix 2 project.

EnerMech has also agreed to employ an Azeri-only nationalised workforce for the contract term, which includes the provision of spare parts, repair and refurbishment, and training.

In Qatar, EnerMech has secured exclusivity for the provision of crane maintenance services to the Al Shaheen Field.

A three-year deal to provide crane operation and maintenance services to Daewoo International E&P on the Shwe Gas field in the Bay of Bengal, marks EnerMech’s first long term contract award offshore Myanmar.

EnerMech has also been awarded a crane operation and maintenance contract in Trinidad & Tobago with an international operator.

Closer to home, the engineerinh group has grasped a five-year contract in the North Sea with Nexen Petroleum UK, covering the Buzzard, Scott and Golden Eagle platforms.

EnerMech’s international mechanical handling services director, John Morrison, said: "It has been an excellent 2016 to date for our cranes and lifting services division with key contracts renewed by major clients alongside winning work in new markets and extending our market share. This is quite an achievement in today’s competitive environment.

"Extending contracts in Baku with BP and in the North Sea, winning our first crane contracts with Nexen, Daewoo and in Trinidad & Tobago, while securing extra workscopes in Qatar, all indicate that our cranes and lifting expertise is highly regarded across the oil and gas producing world.

"We will continue to seek out more efficient methods of providing crane and lifting services to clients which are capable of being integrated with our other business lines. The energy industry is demanding more collaboration to counter the downturn in the oil price and this is an approach which has been championed by EnerMech since the company was founded."
