After a period of competitive tender, Aberdeen-headquartered Bilfinger Salamis UK Ltd has been appointed by Shell UK to provide services for an upgrade project running until 2014.


The contract covers a major flotel FM campaign, with asset integrity work to be carried out on the Gannet and Shearwater installations.

Salamis will provide coating application, removal and reinstatement of insulation and passive fire protection (PFP), as well as access solutions for the project.

Mike McKay, COO-FM said: “This is a significant contract award and a great start to the year and follows a record year in 2012 for the business with turnover of £155M from our Aberdeen North Sea headquarters, and a further £160M delivered in the UK across the Bilfinger Industrial Services Group.”

The contract win extends Bilfinger Salamis UK Ltd’s portfolio of work with major North Sea operators and continues a recent run of large–scale contract wins for the company. Salamis’s market share has expanded significantly in recent years, including an increase in work in the Southern North Sea.

With asset integrity a focus across the industry, Bilfinger Salamis UK Ltd is continuously strengthening its fabric maintenance expertise and project capability to underpin additional opportunities for growth.

The company has built a demonstrable capability and track record to tackle major anomaly and defect scope using barges and flotels, and is already undertaking similar campaigns for Shell ONEgas /AJS.

The work is expected to create 10 onshore positions, with a further 200 jobs offshore across Salamis’s full range of disciplines.

Onshore scope and offshore survey work is on-going, and offshore mobilisation to Gannet is scheduled for June.
