Engineering and maintenance contractor Bilfinger UK has secured a major contract to deliver fabric maintenance campaign services on TotalEnergies’ Elgin and Franklin platforms located in the UK Central North Sea.
The contract supports a 270-day campaign on the installations and will start in March 2022, creating 300 fixed-term positions. Bilfinger will provide fabric maintenance, scaffolding and rope access personnel.
Mike Henderson, business development and commercial director at Bilfinger UK, said: “We’ve supported TotalEnergies to operate and maintain its North Sea assets for more than a decade.
“This new contract win is testament to the strong relationship we’ve built with the operator’s team over this period, and to the skills and expertise within Bilfinger for successfully delivering critical offshore projects. We’re proud to be part of the team helping to extend the life of these offshore assets.”
The contract win follows Bilfinger commencing a five-year inspection contract for TotalEnergies’ Danish North Sea assets in July 2021.
Aberdeen-based Bilfinger Salamis UK now trades under the new Bilfinger UK brand following its merger with Warrington-based Bilfinger UK on 1st January 2022.
