Altrad secures North Sea offshore gas platform contract

Altrad has announced the penning of a contract for the construction, hook-up and commissioning of the Tolmount gas platform in the Southern, North Sea.

The company will be providing temporary access, engineering design, insulation, corrosion and fire protection, rigging and LOLER support to enable the hook-up and commissioning of the Tolmount offshore gas platform.

Altrad has said the contract will commence immediately and will encompass the firm mobilising resources to Ravenna in Italy for the construction phase of the project.

Altrad’s Director of Operations for Offshore Services, Chris Garland, commented: “We are delighted to have reached an agreement with our long-term partner Rosetti Marino SpA for the Tolmount platform and we look forward to using Altrad’s skills and expertise, to add value, during the life-cycle of this project.”

This latest contract award comes after Altrad successfully supported the construction, hook-up and commissioning of Total’s West Franklin and Elgin B platforms in the UK North Sea.

Peter Hughes, Director of Business Development & Strategy added: “The award of this contract, marks the beginning of Altrad’s transformation strategy in the UK offshore sector, wherein we have restructured the business, to put our client’s objectives at the heart of our decision making.  This opportunity allows us to prove we can deliver enhanced value for our client, which exceeds that available from our competitors, and we will demonstrate that, not in our words, but in how we deliver a superior outcome for our client.”
