Energy services firm Bilfinger UK has secured a major new contract in the North Sea and it will create 300 new jobs. Bilfinger UK has its offshore oil and gas base in Aberdeen.
Contract with TotalEnergies
The company is to carry out fabric maintenance work on the Elgin and Franklin platforms in the Central Graben Area for French operator TotalEnergies. Bilfinger UK informed late last week that the contract would support a 270-day campaign on these installations. The project will start in March 2022. The latest contract win follows a five-year inspection contract for TotalEnergies Danish North Sea assets in July 2021. The contract also has a provision for two one-year extension options.
“We’ve supported TotalEnergies to operate and maintain its North Sea assets for more than a decade”. Business development and commercial director Mike Henderson at Bilfinger UK, said in a company statement.
The deal will create 300 fixed-term positions. Warrington-based Bilfinger UK now has about 4,500 employees during peak periods, working out of 14 onshore sites in key industrial locations. In September last year Bilfinger revealed that Bilfinger UK and Bilfinger Salamis would merge on January 1, 2022. The merger will create a new $453.9 million (EUR 400 million) turnover business under the Bilfinger UK brand.
