Two major contracts see significant developments in the Scan Tech AS service offering.

Scan Tech AS has successfully finished its first contract to install energy cables and to provide offshore labour to a key North Sea oil concern, project managing the process from start to finish. The contract represents a significant development of the company’s previous service offering, which was based on renting out its offshore equipment and project planning from its base in Stavanger.

“Becoming more involved with how our equipment is used is the logical next step in the development of our service.”

Says Scan Tech AS’s Kjell Gjerdrum, business manager for the winch, crane and lifting department.

As if this wasn’t challenge enough, the company is also close to completing its most significant Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) oilfield project to date, worth just over £4million. Working closely with Norwegian oil and gas company Aker Solutions, Scan Tech AS has designed high pressure water and utility systems for a new oil platform, which is situated on the Edvard Grieg field in the North Sea. At full capacity, the field is expected to yield 90,000 barrels of oil per day.

Scan Tech project manager Shan Gnanavel, who led the team, says:

“We have never engineered and produced 55 utility station units in such a short time, so it’s been a challenge. But happily, one of the Aker Solutions guys said we were their star supplier.”

To celebrate their success the Scan Tech AS team will be shortly departing for Ibiza, although there won’t be much time for sunbathing. They are about to start their next major cable installation contract between the islands.
