EnerMech has secured its first major PPU contract in China and will perform nitrogen/helium leak testing, leak repair and high pressure hydrojetting services on behalf of Hanas New Energy Group.
The engineering services group will supply personnel and a range of leak testing spreads, pumps, tanks and bolt torquing services at the Ningxia Hanas LNG plant under construction in Yinchaun.
Working closely with Chinese partners Qingdao Pacific Oceaneering (QPOC), the work scope will last about three months and is valued at approximately $850,000 (£540,000).
EnerMech’s regional director for Asia Pacific, John Guy, said: “This is an important strategic contract win as it represents our first PPU contract in China and also the first time we have worked on behalf of Hanas.
“China is a key territory for future EnerMech growth and we have spent $12 million (£7.7 million) investing in the latest equipment which allows quick mobilisation across the Asia Pacific region.
“We have placed a high importance on building a strong relationship with our Chinese partners, QPOC, and being able to call on their excellent local support is a big attraction to clients who value a quick turnaround and 24-7 support.
“This paves the way for further contracts which will establish EnerMech as an important provider of PPU services in this important market.”
EnerMech is represented in China in Qindao, Shenzhen and Tianjin.
