Integrated solutions specialists EnerMech has been awarded a five-year multi-million contract by TotalEnergies EP Congo for crane and lifting maintenance at a new facility to be built at Pointe-Noire, the second largest city in Congo.
The work scope will include specific maintenance of crane and lifting equipment, and onshore and offshore parts supply for three offshore sectors which include Likouf and Nkossa. The agreement also includes riser pulling systems, mooring and tensioning systems.
EnerMech has established a new entity, EnerMech Congo, to carry out the work and has sub-contracted a local Congolese company, Congo Services, to assist in the delivery.
The company is recruiting local Congolese personnel in onshore contract support roles with experienced local maintenance crew personnel being provided by the sub-contractor. The new facility at Pointe-Noire will benefit the area through the establishment of an additional lasting technical provision and local employment opportunities.
EnerMech has previously worked with TotalEnergies SE on projects across the African continent and has also worked in Congo, on contract to Technip on the Moho Nord project.
Steve Swanson, Vice President, Africa for EnerMech?said: “We have a well-established relationship with TotalEnergies which goes back many years. We’re very pleased that they continue to see the value of the trusted and experienced service that we provide and chose EnerMech to work with them on this new project in Congo.”
Paul Cockerill, Regional Director for Africa, Middle East & Caspian added “EnerMech has been very successful in securing new, and retaining, existing cranes and lifting, operations and maintenance contracts, as well as extension of existing frame agreements, in a number of locations in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Caspian, and Asia.
“This is due to many factors including delivery of well thought out execution plans, with a highly detailed focus on solution delivery and, more importantly, our safety culture, and to our highly qualified project management, Contract Support Engineers and project engineers who bring their own expertise and many years of industry experience.
“We are committed to not only adhering to, but exceeding, local content requirements through engagement of our global network of Subject Matter Experts with minimal ex-pat project resourcing and we have a highly successful, proactive regional employee training and development plan. Where possible, as is the case here with Congo Services, we engage in-country subcontractors and utilize local supply chains.”
