Tool hire contract will create jobs
Enermech has won a £20 million deal to supply tools and equipment to Wood Group PSN.
The five-year agreement covers operations in the UK continental shelf and includes items such as generators, rigging equipment, compressors and hand tools.
The Aberdeen mechanical engineering business has spent £1.5 million on new equipment and a further £400,000 on a new workshop to service the contract.
As a result it expects to create 12 jobs in Aberdeen.
Doug Duguid, managing director of EnerMech, said: "We have completed some ad-hoc work on behalf of Wood Group in the past but this deal signals what I hope will be the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship, which should offer up further opportunities for both companies.
"Winning this award is a clear indication that Wood Group PSN trusts us to provide a high quality service, delivered by first class personnel and backed up with our extensive on-site facilities which are second to none in the north east of Scotland."
