Asset services company Bilfinger Salamis UK has announced a major contract win with Shell UK and Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij B.V. (NAM), for the Southern North Sea, securing more than150 jobs as personnel move over to the firm.
The multi-million pound contract will see Bilfinger provide technical manpower services on Shell U.K. Limited southern North Sea (SNS) assets over a three year period.
The deal covers the execution of maintenance operations services onshore at Bacton Gas Plant, and offshore on the Leman Alpha Platform, Clipper and Seafox 4 Barge as well as the Kroonborg Walk-to-Work vessel supporting NAM in the Dutch sector.
Sandy Bonner, Bilfinger Salamis UK’s managing director, said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract as it further solidifies our position as a leading provider of Modifications, Maintenance and Operations (MMO) services.
“Bilfinger has worked extensively with Shell and NAM for many years. Shell’s decision to award this contract to us is testament to the strong, collaborative relationship we have.”
As part of the contract more than 150 personnel will transfer to Bilfinger Salamis UK from the incumbent contractor, in electrical, mechanical, pipe fitting, welding, crane and rigging disciplines.
In January this year, Bilfinger recruited and rehired over 600 personnel within the UK as it has moved into securing new maintenance, inspection and renewable energy contracts.
