Altrad Services UK and Bilfinger have been awarded multi-million pound maintenance project contracts for work with SABIC UK Petrochemicals on their Teesside sites.
The multi-discipline maintenance contract sees industrial services firm Altrad helping SABIC maintain their critical assets by undertaking mechanical, access, insulation and painting works over a four-year term on their sites at Wilton and North Tees.
The contract sits with Altrad Services’ Maintenance, Modifications and Overhauls business and is expected to employ more than 120 local people at peak.
Altrad Services executive director Tony Jester said: “We’re well known for industry-leading excellence in maintaining our customers’ assets.
Winning this contract is recognition by SABIC that Altrad excels in project maintenance delivery.
“Our innovative approach to delivering solutions means customers can expect new, smarter ways of working rather than the more traditional methods other suppliers use.”
Altrad Services can boast more than 120 years of experience, formed from the well-established brands of Cape and Hertel.
This combined experience, together with a larger and more efficient business, means greater access to resources, enabling the delivery of critical services its customers demand.
Altrad employs more than 7,000 people, delivering services across the UK’s critical industries and can offer whole life asset management from design to decommissioning.
Bilfinger has been chosen as maintenance partner for SABIC to carry out a range of services across facilities on its Teesside sites.
The services will include mechanical, electrical and instrumentation engineering, as well as access, insulation, painting and asbestos management and removal.
The four-year contract comes under Bilfinger’s Engineering & Maintenance service line.
Bilfinger employs 2,500 employees in the UK, with approximately 200 employees dedicated to the engineering and maintenance services for SABIC.
SABIC employs more than 540 people across its Teesside sites but needs up to 400 contractors on a daily basis to maintain the efficient and safe operation of the plants.
