MInteg has been awarded its largest contract to date and will supply inspection services to a major oil and gas operator in the Southern North Sea. The EnerMech subsidiary specialises in inspection and integrity and expects to create up to 15 new posts in Great Yarmouth to service the five-year contract.
The work scope, valued at a seven figure sum, includes the inspection of infrastructure on five manned platforms and multiple unmanned satellite platforms, deploying MInteg staff trained in working-at-height and rope access techniques. Ross McHardy, EnerMech’s Regional Director for Europe, said innovative working practices and having a strong local presence in Great Yarmouth were factors in securing the contract.
MInteg’s integrity inspection capability is attracting interest from clients who require support and innovation to address asset integrity. Parent company Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech recently outlined its strategy of increasing its presence in sectors out with its traditional oil and gas base with the recent appointment of Laz Koszeghy as new general manager for the eastern England region.
EnerMech is also focussed on looking at opportunities in the renewables, nuclear power, chemicals and industrial sectors where it believes the integrated services model it provides to the energy sector will find wider appeal.
