Aberdeenshire project management and integration company Camm-Pro said it has secured a multi million pound contract with bp to deliver a major new piece of the UK’s energy infrastructure.
Camm-Pro said it has been contracted to deliver construction of a new pipeline on Shetland for bp “on behalf of the company and its Clair field co-owners.”
The pipeline will connect the existing gas sweetening facilities at the Sullom Voe terminal on Shetland with the SIRGE pipeline, creating an additional export route for gas from the Clair field.
Camm-Pro’s headcount is set to increase by 25% to over 50 due to this contract, under which they will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, alongside project management and technical integration across all stakeholders.
Camm-Pro MD Simon McBain, said: “The award of this contract by bp is a real step-change for our business that aligns with our strategic growth plans.
“At the core of our offering is genuine, independent capital project and engineering management.
“Comprising a specialised team with international operator and tier-1 service provider experience, we are uniquely positioned to integrate the best-placed companies from the supply chain to support us in the design, construction and delivery of capital projects from concept through to operation, whilst safeguarding the interests of the operator at all times.”
Fabrication work on the pipeline has already begun, with the first steel cut for manufacturing the modules required for the project at Buckie-based fabricators, Forsyths, at the end of last year.
McBain added: “We are committed to sourcing suppliers in the local area wherever possible, and have engaged extensively with Shetland-based companies, as well as those in the North-east.
“It’s particularly gratifying for us to award this fabrication scope to Forsyths, a local company with a proud heritage and a long-standing reputation for quality.”
