Media Release: EnerMech land £1m Talisman Norway cranes deal


MECHNICAL engineering group, EnerMech, has been awarded a £1 million (NOK 8.9M) crane services contract by Talisman Energy Norge AS.

EnerMech AS based in Stavanger will deliver services to all Talisman’s Norwegian  assets over the next six years. The three year (+three year option) contract covers crane inspection, maintenance and modifications on the Gyda, Yme and Varg A assets.

EnerMech AS general manager, Trond Møller, said: “The critical success factor for us was the good working relationship between ourselves and our points of contact in Talisman. In addition to having the quality systems in place required to fulfil this contract, our strong safety track record and personnel competency were key service differentiators for EnerMech.”

Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech has made a multi-million pounds investment in infrastructure to be able to service pan-European contracts for companies with crane operations in multiple locations and jurisdictions.

Doug Duguid, managing director of EnerMech, said: “EnerMech’s international footprint enables us to deliver cost benefits to our global customers through cross border contracts. This versatile approach to servicing contracts also allows us to share best practice in terms of safety and operational efficiency between the UK and Norway.

“We are finding many of the large operators are interested in single cross-border contracts which reduce administration and improve efficiency and we are leading the way in delivering a fresh approach which meets 21st century requirements.”
