Following Monday’s announcement by Repsol Sinopec Resources UK that the company had awarded a batch of contracts for its North Sea assets, industrial lifecycle support partner Bilfinger Salamis UK has confirmed a multi-million pound contract award.
The contract award sees Bilfinger Salamis provide a full range of fabric maintenance, scaffolding and access services to Repsol Sinopec Resources UK’s Piper, Claymore, Tartan, Clyde and Bleo Holm offshore operated assets, as well as the terminal at Flotta.
The initial award is for period of two years, with options to extend for a further four years, and secures employment for over 200 Bilfinger operatives.
The announcement follows Repsol Sinopec Resources UK’s move to an asset focused organisational structure, and is one of a number of major new service contracts awarded which aim to underpin the company’s long-term transformation. This includes focusing on rationalizing and investing in the long-term integrity of its asset portfolio.
Bilfinger Salamis UK chief operating officer Sandy Bonner said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract which will allow us to support Repsol Sinopec Resources in their offshore operations in the North Sea.
“Securing this long-term contract with Repsol Sinopec Resources UK was a major strategic target for us. Adding a further six large assets to our portfolio of North Sea contracts consolidates our position as market leaders in fabric maintenance and industrial support services for the offshore industry.
“On the back of several contract wins we believe that the investment made in innovation, technology and our people over recent years is being recognised by the marketplace, whilst continuing to benefit our employees and customers.
