North Sea waste treatment division boosts Augean

Waste-management giant Augean said yesterday that contract wins for its North Sea energy service arm contributed to a strong first half performance for the group. Aberdeen-based Augean North Sea Services (ANSS) sealed a number of deals in June and July, including a first contract for the disposal of naturally occurring radioactive material that builds up on offshore drilling equipment. The group’s Radioactive Waste Services (RWS) division will work with ANSS on the contract, which was agreed with an unspecified major operator.
