Ferguson awards £4.5m work to Scots firms

Ferguson awards £4.5m work to Scots firms
FERGUSON Modular has awarded contracts worth £4.5million to Scottish suppliers for work on its new accommodation support vessel.

FERGUSON Modular has awarded contracts worth £4.5million to Scottish suppliers for work on its new accommodation support vessel.

The division of Inverurie-based Ferguson Group is investing £25million in the unit which will be available for hire once the work is completed in June.

Ferguson Group managing director Steven Ferguson said Ace Winches, which has sites at Montbletton, near Banff, and Turriff, would supply hydraulic winches. Thistle Generators, of Bothwell, Glasgow, is to provide generators, while Aberdeen-based CSL has been awarded the contract for project-management for the vessel through the detailed design and project execution phases.

Mr Ferguson said: “The high standards of manufacturing and reliability at these suppliers, combined with their cost-efficient approach, meant it was possible to award all the work competitively in Scotland.

“It is important to us to continue to support Scottish companies while expanding aggressively internationally and the investments we are making in the future of our company will lead to jobs being created in the north-east as well as Glasgow.”

A £3.2million contract for outfitting the vessel was awarded previously to Ferguson Shipbuilders, at Port Glasgow.

CSL commercial and operations manager Dave Andrew said: “Having been involved from inception of the project, CSL is delighted to continue with the engineering and project management for Ferguson’s new vessel.”

Ace Winches chief executive Alfie Cheyne said: “As a north-east company we are delighted to secure the £2.1million contract with Ferguson Modular to design and manufacture four double-drum mooring winches and four hydraulic power units complete with remote-control system.”

Ferguson Group employs more than 150 people worldwide through its divisions serving the offshore container rental and accommodation module markets.
