Cassel site in Billingham, Teesside, UK

Industrial services provider Wood has been awarded a new five-year contract by Lucite International UK Ltd.

Wood will be providing industrial services at the Cassel site in Billingham, Teesside, UK.

Onshore fabrication, steelwork, electrical and rigging support services will be deployed under the new contract, which is effective immediately and includes a two-year extension option.

Cassel is the largest methyl methacrylate (MMA) facility in Lucite International’s portfolio. It has been manufacturing chemicals at Billingham since 1930 with an annual capacity of 250 kilo-tonnes per year (kte).

Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia & Australia, said: “This long-term contract builds on our relationship with Lucite International, developed following our recent work to support the refurbishment of the Cassel site.

“We look forward to leveraging our broad industrial service capabilities to successfully deliver this contract, which further strengthens Wood’s onshore footprint within the chemical and manufacturing sector in the UK.”
