Media Release: Maersk Oil award EnerMech £1m hose inspection maintenance contract

ENERMECH Ltd has secured a contract with Maersk Oil North Sea UK Limited worth an estimated £1 million ($1.6M).

The Aberdeen mechanical services company will provide flexible hose inspection and maintenance services in addition to supplying hoses and associated equipment to three Maersk Oil assets, the GPIII, Gryphon and Janice.

The contract is for three years with two, one-year options to extend and was won in a competitive tender process.

John Wingfield, EnerMech’s business development director, said: “This is an important contract for our company and we look forward to establishing a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Maersk Oil.

“In addition to being able to offer a competitive and cost efficient package we believe operators welcome the fresh and innovative approach we have introduced to the hose management market.

“Our investment in EnerMech OHM and RFID tagging is representative of how we look to find new ways of improving safety and efficiency while offering better communication between clients and their assets.”

EnerMech OHM is an online hose management software system which allows clients 24-7 information on specification and inspection reporting. RFID (radio frequency identification) tagging gathers accurate maintenance status and location information of Flexible Hose Assemblies and is more efficient and permanent than traditional tagging methods used by competitors.
