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.
Note to Editors
EnerMech Ltd was formed in April 2008 and offers a safer, more customer-focused, responsive service with lower costs in the mechanical services sector within the energy industry, while delivering a much greater level of engineering and technical support than competitors can offer.
The company specialises in the supply, maintenance and engineering of cranes, lifting and hydraulic equipment, rental of hand tools and zoned equipment and provision of training and specialist personnel to the energy industry.
With the acquisition of Specialist Maintenance Services Ltd and A1 Safety Training Consultants Ltd, EnerMech is now a leading international provider of offshore crane and lifting operations, crane personnel and safety training. EnerMech also has a significant presence in Norway following the acquisition of Bjørge ASA’s crane division in October 2008.
In April 2009 EnerMech extended its presence in the Middle East with the acquisition of UAE free zone companies Pavitt Energy Limited and Scotia Oilfield Trading FZE which has since been integrated in to the EnerMech group. Investment totaling £5.1 million ($7.5M) has been made in equipment stock rental, a new base in Ras al-Khaimah and existing facilities in Jebel Ali and Doha.
EnerMech employs 350 staff at its Aberdeen headquarters and bases in Great Yarmouth, Stavanger, Dubai, Qatar, Ras al-Khaimah, Singapore, Indonesia, China and Perth, Australia.
EnerMech’s five director-owners are backed by private equity firm Lime Rock Partners and together have in place a £30 million plus funding package to support organic growth and further acquisitions.
