Engineering and services group Bilfinger has secured a £100 million contract to provide BP with maintenance services at two of its oil and gas terminals.
The three-year contract covers scaffolding, rope access, insulation, blast cleaning, painting and fire-proofing and will be delivered by Bilfinger’s Industrial Services division.
It will see safeguard more than 240 Bilfinger employees with many based permanently on-site at BP facilities at the Forties Pipeline System (FPS), Grangemouth and Sullom Voe Terminal (SVT), Shetland. Some 24 roles will be apprenticeship or trainee positions.
Bilfinger Industrial Services is one of two Bilfinger UK businesses to have existing agreements with BP, alongside its electrical engineering division, Bilfinger Industrial Automation Services. The global energy giant and the engineering and services group have worked together in the UK for more than six years.
Duncan Hall, executive president of Bilfinger Oil & Gas, said: “BP is a long term strategic partner for Bilfinger and we support them across their upstream and midstream assets. We have been delivering these specialist and critical areas of plant maintenance across these key UK assets since 2010.
“This latest agreement is a landmark for Bilfinger in the UK which further cements our position as a leading support services provider to the energy sector. Two thirds of all diesel and petrol sold in the UK comes from production assets that we help maintain.”
The Bilfinger UK group of businesses also includes real estate advisory firm Bilfinger GVA and integrated facilities management provider Bilfinger Europa. In total, the group employs more than 9,000 people across the UK generating revenues of £650m annually. The UK is the second largest market for Bilfinger globally.
