Altrad secure a construction, hook-up and commissioning contract for the Tolmount gas platform

We are pleased to announce the signature of a contract for the provision of temporary access, engineering design, insulation, corrosion and fire protection, rigging and LOLER support to enable the hook-up and commissioning of the Tolmount offshore gas platform.

The contract, which commences immediately, will encompass Altrad mobilising resources to Ravenna in Italy for the construction phase of the project, which will be followed by the hook-up and commissioning phase located offshore in the Southern, North Sea.

Altrad’s Director of Operations for Offshore Services, Chris Garland, commented: “We are delighted to have reached an agreement with our long-term partner Rosetti Marino SpA for the Tolmount platform and we look forward to using Altrad’s skills and expertise, to add value, during the life-cycle of this project”.

This latest contract award, builds upon Altrad’s long-term relationship with Rosetti Marino SpA, which was last active in 2013, when Altrad successfully supported the construction, hook-up and commissioning of Total’s West Franklin and Elgin B platforms in the UK North Sea.

“The award of this contract, marks the beginning of Altrad’s transformation strategy in the UK offshore sector, wherein we have restructured the business, to put our client’s objectives at the heart of our decision making.  This opportunity allows us to prove we can deliver enhanced value for our client, which exceeds that available from our competitors, and we will demonstrate that, not in our words, but in how we deliver a superior outcome for our client” added Peter Hughes, Director of Business Development & Strategy.
