Bilfinger UK to create 300 new North Sea access jobs

Engineering and maintenance firm Bilfinger UK has secured a major contract in the North Sea that will create 300 new roles in scaffolding and rope access.

The contract will see Bilfinger UK deliver fabric maintenance services at TotalEnergies’ Elgin and Franklin platforms located in the UK Central North Sea.

The deal supports a 270-day campaign on the installations and will start in March 2022, creating 300 fixed-term positions. Bilfinger will provide fabric maintenance, rope access and over 50 new scaffolding personnel.

Mike Henderson, business development and commercial director at Bilfinger UK, said: “We’ve supported TotalEnergies to operate and maintain its North Sea assets for more than a decade.

“This new contract win is testament to the strong relationship we’ve built with the operator’s team over this period, and to the skills and expertise within Bilfinger for successfully delivering critical offshore projects. We’re proud to be part of the team helping to extend the life of these offshore assets.”

The contract win follows Bilfinger commencing a five-year inspection contract for TotalEnergies’ Danish North Sea assets in July 2021.

Aberdeen-based Bilfinger Salamis UK now trades under the new Bilfinger UK brand following its merger with Warrington-based Bilfinger UK on 1st January 2022.

The merger, combining the onshore and offshore capabilities of the two businesses, forms one of the UK’s largest integrated services contractors, with 4,500 employees during peak periods and 14 onshore locations across the UK’s key industrial hubs.
