Pyeroy providing access for North Sea module fabrication
By Maria Hadlow22 March 2012
Industrial services company Pyeroy has won a contract - for an undisclosed sum - to provide access systems to Wilton Engineering Services Ltd. The Gateshead-based firm is providing specialised mobile and bespoke access units so that Wilton can construct a new compression module for an international energy company. The module is due for completion in March 2013.
The access systems contract was secured by Pyeroy to support the fabrication of a 2200t module, which will accommodate one of the North Sea's largest compressors.
Upwards of 20 Pyeroy employees will be onsite at Wilton's Port Clarence offshore base in Middlesbrough over the next 12 months providing and supporting the fabricators working on the 30m long structure.
Pyeroy's divisional director Jim Anderson said contracts like this and others from the other module fabricators within the area have reinforced the company's presence in the offshore sector where customers require highly specialised access and scaffolding solutions.
"Bespoke systems utilising the latest developments in scaffolding and alternative access systems will ensure we provide safe, high quality and added value solutions to Wilton Engineering," he said.
