Multi million pound Talisman Cranes Contract Lifts EnerMech To New Level.

 

Mechanical engineering group EnerMech has been awarded a multi-million pound contract to manage the UK North Sea offshore crane assets of Talisman Energy (UK) Limited.

 

The five-year contract, with two additional one year options, is the Aberdeen-based mechanical engineering group’s largest single contract award and includes the operation, maintenance, engineering and inspection of more than 30 offshore cranes located across Talisman’s 11 UKCS offshore installations.

 

EnerMech will manage offshore crane operators and mechanics, while an onshore management team will provide project management and technical support. Engineering teams in Aberdeen and Bristol will deliver structural, hydraulic, mechanical and instrumentation services to the contract.

 

Around 50 new posts will be created at EnerMech and a number of people will transfer from the current contract holder, pushing EnerMech’s total workforce to just under 1200. EnerMech managing director, Doug Duguid, said he believed the award was the largest contract of its type in the North Sea and that it underlined the company’s credentials and capacity to undertake large scale workscopes. Continual investment in the company’s Aberdeen headquarters (Howes Road) and the opening of a new base in Bristol in December had enabled EnerMech to recruit the top quality engineering skills required to service large scale contracts of this nature.

 

“We have invested £7 million in acquiring and transforming Howes Road into a single site engineering, maintenance and storage hub, capable of fulfilling the largest contracts. Just as important has been our policy of recruiting the best engineering talent the industry has to offer and establishing a base in Bristol, which has a strong engineering heritage, has strengthened our skills pool and is now paying dividends.

 

EnerMech also supplies hydraulic and hose integrity management to Talisman in the UK.
