EnerMech’s cranes and lifting division has benefited from an £85 million-plus uplift to its order book with a series of contract wins, extensions and renewals.
The company said it has consolidated its position as a major international cranes services provider, strengthened its reputation in the Caspian region and extended its reach by winning new work in the Gulf States, Far East and the Caribbean
In Azerbaijan, BP Exploration (Caspian Sea) has renewed its contract with EnerMech— held since 2010—for up to five years. Crane operations, maintenance and inspection services for 16 BP offshore pedestal cranes and two new platforms on the Shah Deniz 2 project are included in the contract.
EnerMech has undertaken to employ an Azeri-only nationalised workforce for the contract term, which also includes the provision of spare parts, repair and refurbishment and training.
In Qatar, the company has secured exclusivity for the provision of crane maintenance services to the Al Shaheen Field. As part of its integrated services approach, EnerMech will also offer process, pipeline and umbilicals, valves inspection and repair, hydraulics and training services.
A three-year deal to provide crane operation and maintenance services to Daewoo International E&P on the Shwe Gas field in the Bay of Bengal marks EnerMech’s first long term contract award offshore Myanmar.
EnerMech has also been awarded a crane operation and maintenance contract by an international operator in Trinidad & Tobago. A new base has been established on the island from which the company will offer all its service lines.
In the North Sea, Nexen Petroleum UK has awarded EnerMech a five-year crane operation and maintenance contract covering the Buzzard, Scott and Golden Eagle platforms.
Also in the UKCS (UK Continental Shelf), contracts first awarded to EnerMech as far back as 2006 by two major oil and gas operators have been renewed for a further three years. EnerMech will continue to provide crane maintenance, mechanic and operator crews, spare parts and equipment inspection services on a combined total of 11 platforms.
EnerMech’s international mechanical handling services director, John Morrison, said: “It has been an excellent 2016 to date for our cranes and lifting services division with key contracts renewed by major clients alongside winning work in new markets and extending our market share. This is quite an achievement in today’s competitive environment.”
