The energy division of Servelec Group has been handed a deal to provide a range of services on the National Grid’s gas transmission system.
Servelec Controls, which has four UK bases, including one in Aberdeen, will install new equipment and carry out maintenance work on what is a key piece of infrastructure in Britain.
All gas used domestically passes through the system on its way to people’s homes.
The contract is for an initial five years with the option of a two-year extension.
Servelec managing director Andrew Mills said: “This award demonstrates National Grid’s confidence in our continued ability to support their critical national infrastructure and builds on the positive relationship Servelec and National Grid have shared for many years.”
Sheffield-headquartered Servelec Group, a specialist in technology and software, saw its share price plunge in June after issuing a profit warning due to a drop off in demand for its services from oil and gas sector customers.
