Engineering services firm EnerMech is celebrating the award of contracts from clients at opposite ends of the world.
The Aberdeen-headquartered company has netted a three-year deal to provide maintenance services on the Norwegian Defence Estate Agency’s cranes and lifting equipment.
It will be the first time EnerMech has provided services in Norway to an industry other than offshore oil and gas.
EnerMech has also agreed to provide a range of pre-commissioning services on the Woodside-operated North West Shelf (NWS) projects Persephone and North Rankin Complex in Australia.
The Australian contract was awarded by Subsea 7.
The value of the two deals was not disclosed.
Trond Møller, EnerMech general manager for Norway, said: “Our reputation has been built in the oil and energy offshore market and we are pleased that our long standing pedigree is being recognised with the award of this prestigious contract.
“It is widely accepted the offshore industry in Norway and abroad is facing challenging times and this contract provides an important bridge for EnerMech to diversify in the onshore and defence sectors.”
EnerMech’s Australia regional director, Allan Hart, said: “We have a strong relationship with Subsea 7 in the major international oil and gas producing hubs and we are delighted to consolidate this link with our first contract award in Australia.
“We place a heavy emphasis on innovation and trying to find fresh solutions to client requirements and our proposal fitted well with Woodside’s specification for the flooding, cleaning and testing of offshore pipelines.
“Our strong reputation for competent umbilical testing, investment in the latest equipment and a collaborative approach to delivery, has put us in a good positon to win other strategic contracts on major Australian oil and gas projects.”
