FERGUSON Group of Inverurie announced yesterday its biggest contract wins to date in Australia.
Its subsidiary, Ferguson Modular, has been awarded two deals totalling £1.5million by Woodside to provide accommodation for its huge Pluto LNG project.
Ferguson Modular will supply a 15-module complex to house 48 people.
The Scottish company has already provided accommodation complexes to Woodside for the Angel and Goodwyn A platforms.
Gary Wilson, director of business development at Ferguson Modular, said: “We are very pleased to be continuing our working relationship with Woodside, and we are delighted to be part of such a key project.
“The Ferguson Group has invested heavily in developing the fleet of accommodation and containers available to our customers with £60million investment across our divisions over three years to meet the requirements of both existing and new clients around the world.
“As well as supplying accommodation units, Ferguson Modular has just launched a new operation, offering accommodation barges to the global energy industry.”
Ferguson Group established an operation in Perth, Western Australia, at the start of 2007 and expansion in the region has been rapid.
The Australasia fleet has grown to more than 2,500 units, the largest fleet of DNV-certified offshore containers in south-east Asia, and staff numbers at the division have increased to 14 people.
Ferguson Modular is to further expand its operations in Australasia next year.
Ferguson Group employs more than 140 people worldwide through its divisions serving the offshore container rental and accommodation modules markets.
