Media Release: EnerMech power ahead with £1m Petrofac tools contract


ENERMECH has been awarded a contract to provide Petrofac Offshore Engineering & Operations with power tools, plant and equipment and lifting gear services.

The three-year contract, with two one-year options, is estimated to be worth £1 million.

EnerMech is already a provider on a Petrofac managed asset but the new contract extends the provision to cover all of Petrofac’s North Sea requirements.

Aberdeen based mechanical services specialist EnerMech will invest around £500,000 in new equipment and tools to service the contract. A key factor in securing the deal was EnerMech’s recent investment in IT systems, its strong health and safety record and proven ability to service major contracts.

EnerMech operations director, Phil Bentley, said: “We secured this important contract in a competitive tender against a number of providers and won against stiff competition.

“We have invested a significant sum in cutting edge IT systems, including our EnerMech LIVE system, which offers clients 24 hour online access to safety certification and equipment management.

“We are looking forward to strengthening the existing relationship we have with Petrofac and we are confident our philosophy of continual investment in the latest systems and equipment will lead to further contract wins.”
