Published at 11:21AM - 04/11/14

Can Group, based in Aberdeen, has been awarded a three-year contract with Fairfield Energy worth £4 million to deliver an asset integrity service at the company’s Dunlin platform in the North Sea. Can has also recently announced further plans to expand internationally.

The contract will be delivered primarily by Fairfield Energy Group’s division for integrity engineering, Engteq. Services such as inspection process and management, data collection and analysis and operational support will be provided, with Can offering both execution and support systems for structures and pressure systems.

The work will see Can delivering structural inspections on jacket structures and flares, as well as embedding inspection techniques at the advanced NDT level at onshore and offshore pressure plants.

The Operations Director at Can, Adam Byrne, said that the latest contract win was a ‘great boost’ and underlined the value and demand for asset integrity service delivery on a global scale. He said that the company had experienced an ongoing period of strong demand in the UK North Sea and was now rolling out its service offer to other overseas markets, including North America, West Africa and Asia Pacific.

Can’s leadership team have also announced that they have just won new work in North Africa, with further details to be released, and they have also recently safeguarded 150 operational jobs by wining two contract renewals. The business is diversified, with four divisions operating within the Can family: Venteq, Engteq, trades and inspection. The company’s turnover hit £79 million in 2013, with pre-tax profits at over £15 million.
