Offshore engineering and traditional oilfield services company Petrofac has signed a watershed agreement to provide engineering services to six UK wind projects.
The company confirmed today that it has signed a long-term Framework Agreement (FA) with Transmission Capital to provide engineering services across six of its OFTO (Offshore Transmission Owner) assets.
The agreement will see Petrofac support engineering services over a five year period across all Transmission Capital’s OFTO export cables within the Southern North and Irish Seas.
Petrofac has already secured subsea engineering work at Lincs and Robin Riggs offshore wind farms but was unable to confirm the four other developments at this stage.
However, Petrofac did confirm that this was part of a winder shift into the offshore wind engineering marketplace.
Usman Darr, vice president engineering Services for Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, West said: “This award reflects Petrofac’s growing position in the offshore wind market, where we continue to build our track record of delivering a strong, technically competent service for our clients.
“We very much look forward to having the opportunity to leverage our experience of challenging seabed conditions on behalf of Transmission Capital, through a range of multi-discipline engineering and operational support services.”
