Crane and lifting technology firm Intebloc, of Aberdeen, is celebrating its biggest ever contract win after clinching a six-figure deal with Stena Drilling.
Intebloc’s Rig-Ware data management system will be used on six of Stena Drilling’s vessels under the three-year agreement.
The exact contract value was not provided, but it is understood to be worth a low- to medium-six-figure sum.
The technology lets offshore teams track and monitor the condition of lifting equipment, reducing the risk of failures.
It also provides real-time inventory data analysis, enabling quicker and more informed decision making for lifting equipment management.
Rig-Ware was put through its paces on the Stena Spey and Stena IceMAX vessels.
Intebloc was founded in 2017 by chief executive and majority shareholder Ross Mcleod, whose former employers include Sparrows Group.
The company was on the Oil and Gas Technology Centre’s TechX Pioneer Programme.
Mr Mcleod said of the deal with Stena Drilling: “This contract marks an incredible milestone for Intebloc. Stena Drilling has been integral to the development of the Rig-Ware system.
“Their feedback enhanced our offering to control assets, protect equipment and optimise deck management.
“We’ve already demonstrated that Rig-Ware has been a real asset to Stena Drilling’s lifting operations and look forward to working on this project together.”
Colin Dawson, Stena Drilling digital transformation manager, said: “We have been working with Intebloc for nearly two years and have carried out extensive trials on a number of our assets.
“We are very pleased with the way our feedback has been incorporated into the system. I am confident the high cost savings and efficiency expectations will be realised with Rig-Ware.”
