Bilfinger UK awarded maintenance contracts with INEOS securing roles in Grangemouth

Bilfinger UK has been awarded multi-million-pound contracts to deliver maintenance services for global chemical producer INEOS at two sites in Scotland that will see it double its own workforce in the region and secure existing roles.

The agreements, that will run over an initial period to end Jan 2021, will see Bilfinger UK deliver scaffolding access, insulation, painting, asbestos management and passive fire protection services to the INEOS Chemical Infrastructure Assets in Grangemouth on the Firth of Forth and the Forties Pipeline System (South) Assets at Kinneil.

The contract covering INEOS’ Chemicals assets represents a new agreement for the business and includes the option of a two-year extension. Bilfinger will employ 110 people at the site, which is one of INEOS’ largest manufacturing sites globally, producing 1.3 million tonnes of chemical products each year.

The Forties Pipeline contract is an extension of a previous agreement signed in 2017, where Bilfinger currently employs 110 people. The pipeline system transports up to 40% of the UK’s crude oil from the North Sea to INEOS’ processing facility at Kinneil, close to the Grangemouth refinery and petrochemical complex. Under the contract, Bilfinger UK will deliver maintenance services to a number of onshore assets that form part of the Forties Pipeline System.

Phill Maurer, Managing Director for Bilfinger UK, said: “The awarding of these contracts consolidate our significant footprint in the oil and gas and petrochemicals sectors, securing continuous employment in the Central Scotland region. They demonstrate our capability to deliver maintenance works on a major scale.

“The INEOS Grangemouth site and the co-located FPS Kinneil asset is a large, complex facility that presents significant opportunities from a maintenance perspective. We have developed a sophisticated programme of support that puts safety first while delivering high levels of efficiency. Our maintenance concept will help underpin the reliability and productivity of the plants.”

Bilfinger UK provides its partners with unified, multidisciplinary support across the asset lifecycle to drive new efficiencies and reduce costs, with services including design and build, automated control and electrical systems, installation, commissioning, and operations and maintenance. The company is one of the UK’s leading providers of integrated engineering and technical services to the process industry and the energy sector and employs more than 2,500 people. It is part of German engineering and service group, Bilfinger SE.
