Wood Group wins £85 million Babcock International contract

Hugh Pelham Wood Group

Babcock International has awarded a new five year framework contract with a five year extension option, valued at approximately $120 million (£85 million), to Wood Group.

The contract will be delivered by Wood Group PSN’s industrial service line business, Wood Group Industrial Services (WGIS).

More than 400 people will be employed on the contract that builds on Wood Group Industrial Services’ 15 year relationship with Babcock International.

Surface preparation, application of protective coatings, scaffolding, insulation, rope access, cleaning and fire sentry services will be delivered under this framework contract.

Hugh Pelham, managing director of WGIS, said: “Securing this new contract is testament to our track record in the marine sector and relationship with Babcock International. We have a strong history of delivering marine projects safely, to schedule and to budget. I look forward to building on this across further Babcock Group sites, and successfully continuing our long-standing relationship with this key client.”

This is the second contract announced by WGIS this year. In February the company secured a new five year framework agreement with Valero Energy, an international manufacturer and marketer of transportation fuels, petrochemical products and power, to provide services to the onshore Pembroke refinery in south west Wales.
