Media Release: BIS Salamis awarded new, five-year contract


LEADING industrial services provider, BIS Salamis, has secured a multimillion pound fabric maintenance contract with CNR International (CNRI), which is expected to lead to the creation of a number of additional jobs within the company.

The contract will see BIS Salamis provide CNRI with a full spectrum of multi-disciplined fabric maintenance support services for its Tiffany, Murchison, Ninian North, Central and South platforms. Services delivered under this contract include onshore project management and technical support, scaffolding, insulation and painting as well as environmental services, including vessel cleaning, NORM decontamination and shutdown support.

Following the award of this contract and other work recently secured, a total of 12 new onshore positions are expected to be created within BIS Salamis and the company is also looking to increase the number of offshore fabric maintenance posts during peak campaign activity.

Although BIS Salamis has worked previously with CNRI on its Ninian platforms, the agreement marks the first long term contract with the company for a number of years.

Mike Main, managing director of BIS Salamis, says the company is delighted to be given the opportunity to work more closely with CNRI and expects the contract to herald the start of an exciting period of growth for the company.

He said: “To secure a contract of this magnitude is a significant achievement and a real milestone for BIS Salamis which confirms our position as a leading provider of Industrial Services within the UK’s oil and gas industry.

“As a company we are extremely proud of our growing reputation and excellent safety record and will look to work closely with CNRI to maintain our exceptional service levels.

“In addition to leveraging the skills of our existing personnel, we will also look to recruit the best professionals available to enable us to manage the additional work contained within this new contract.

“The contract award is a perfect start to 2011 and we look forward to building on this success during the year.”
