Nortech Solutions beats off tough competition to win major multi-million pound contract
Nortech Solutions Limited, the professional engineering design and project management company based at Wynyard, has won a significant contract with EnQuest, a major player in the UK oil and gas market based in Aberdeen. The value of the contract is in the region of £2 million.
The new contract with EnQuest, an independent oil and gas production company with a geographic focus on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS), is a major boost for Nortech and for Teesside as a whole.
Nortech will be working on a number of process simplification projects to extend the operating life of an offshore platform located in the Northern North Sea. The work is part of EnQuest’s Field Life Extension Strategy and involves the provision of multi-disciplinary project management and engineering services.
The work, which sees Nortech named as an approved supplier to EnQuest follows the award of two initial project management contracts this year, and will give the company scope to recruit a significant number of additional staff in 2012/13. Nortech has already taken on 12 new employees in 2012, boosting its workforce to 34.
The Nortech Group of companies, which also includes specialist recruitment company Nortech Staffing, has gone from strength to strength since being established by Managing Director Bryan Bunn in April 2011. Only this month, it moved into more spacious offices on the Wynyard Estate and has plans to further increase its floor space as it continues to expand its workforce.
The company is finding that the buoyancy of its business is being boosted by the health of the oil and petrochemical markets, particularly the international offshore oil and gas markets, based in Aberdeen.
Bryan Bunn, Managing Director at the Nortech Group, commented: “We are delighted to have secured such a prestigious contract with a key player in the international oil and gas market.
“EnQuest is an industry leader and the services that we have been contracted to deliver will help to safeguard the future of a major North Sea platform.”
Nortech Solutions has already this year secured a number of key additional contracts including Jersey Gas Co Ltd, located in the Channel Islands. The company has also won a number of on-going engineering design contracts for additional confidential clients in the international offshore oil and gas market. Other contract wins include an international steel manufacturing client.
