A SPECIALIST North-east oil and gas industry fire safety protection company has launched a new office in England after securing an eight-figure multi-million pound contract with a major operator in the Southern North Sea.
Launched in 2006, Blaze Manufacturing Solutions, which is based on the outskirts of Stonehaven, has secured the deal with leading independent exploration and production oil and gas company Perenco, to replace all fire-water systems on the 27 Alpha platform in the Southern North Sea.
Blaze is investing a five-figure sum over the next three years in the new base in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, to concentrate on the contract, which will take nine months to complete.
The company, which currently employs 20 full-time members of staff and 100 contractors, works with major oil and gas operators to design and supply fire protection systems and loss prevention services, and also manages new build contracts for the Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) contractors.
The specialist firm is experienced in all types of fire protection systems for offshore production platforms, drill rigs, floating production units, onshore oil fields, terminals, refineries and petrochemical plants.
Along with the Great Yarmouth base, Blaze currently has project offices and a workshop dedicated to skid build and design, near Stonehaven.
Two new members of staff, project engineer, Peter Parsons, and administrator, Tina Fenton, will be based at the new Great Yarmouth office.
Blaze Manufacturing Solutions managing director, Howard Johnson, said: “The launch of the new office in Great Yarmouth coincides with the company securing the multi-million deal to replace all the firewater systems on a bridge linked complex utilising our Flameshield 300 flexible piping system in the Southern North Sea.
“We can implement the equipment without any loss of production, which is hugely beneficial to our client.”
“As work continues to grow in the area, it is crucial that we base our operations central to our clients needs. It’s rewarding to see the business expand as we continue to deliver our bespoke services to clients.”
