Bilfinger set for human resource expansion after winning couple multimillion pound contracts with INEOS

August 27/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Energy service firm Bilfinger UK has said that it will double its Scottish workforce after winning two multi-million pound contracts with INEOS, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Bilfinger will provide a range of maintenance services at Grangemouth and the Forties Pipeline System at Kinneil.

The companys headcount will double to 220 when 110 people transfer under Tupe regulations.

Bilfinger UK, part of Germany-headquartered industrial services group Bilfinger, did not say who the employees worked for previously.

Both deals run until January 2021. The Grangemouth contract includes a two-year extension option, while the Forties agreement is an extension of a pact signed.

Phill Maurer, managing director for Bilfinger UK, said: "The awarding of these contracts consolidates our significant footprint in the oil and gas and petrochemicals sectors, securing continuous employment in central Scotland.

"They demonstrate our capability to deliver maintenance works on a major scale.

"The Ineos Grangemouth site and the co-located FPS Kinneil asset is a large, complex facility that presents significant opportunities from a maintenance perspective.

"We have developed a sophisticated programme of support that puts safety first while delivering high levels of efficiency.

"Our maintenance concept will help underpin the reliability and productivity of the plants."

Bilfinger Group also has a business which operates offshore operations from Aberdeen - Bilfinger Salamis.

As MRC reported earlier, in September 2018, INEOS announced plans to invest GBP60 million to expand its Grangemouth site. It awarded a contract to build an additional furnace on its KG ethylene plant to Selas-Linde GmbH, Germany.

INEOS Group Limited is a privately owned multinational chemicals company consisting of 15 standalone business units, headquartered in Rolle, Switzerland and with its registered office in Lyndhurst, United Kingdom. It is the fourth largest chemicals company in the world measured by revenues (after BASF, Dow Chemical and LyondellBasell) and the largest privately owned company in the United Kingdom.
