Engineering and maintenance provider Bilfinger Industrial Services has secured a three-year contract worth £15 million with BP Chemicals.


The multi-service deal extends a previous agreement to carry out services including mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, scaffolding and insulation for BP’s facilities on the 370-acre Saltend Chemicals Park, alongside the Humber estuary in Hull.


The fresh deal runs for an initial three years, with an option to extend it up to 2024. Bilfinger says the agreement would secure about 90 existing jobs.


Duncan Hall, executive president of Bilfinger North West Europe, said: “The contract is strategically important to our operations in Humberside and further cements our position as a leading engineering services provider to the UK’s onshore and offshore energy industries.


“BP is a long-term strategic partner for Bilfinger and we’ve supported them across their upstream and midstream assets for 10 years. The new extension will help us build on our close working relationship with BP, while ensuring their assets on the Saltend complex continue to drive world-class chemicals and renewable energy development at the heart of the UK’s Energy Estuary.”


The new agreement follows a recent five-year contract extension with BP to maintain services at the Forties Pipeline System Terminals in Grangemouth and the Sullom Voe Terminal in Shetland, safeguarding 210 jobs. 


Bilfinger employs 4,000 people in the UK and provides integrated technical services to the process industry and the energy sector, covering the entire life cycle of industrial plants and oil and gas facilities – from engineering to maintenance. The business is part of German engineering and service conglomerate, Bilfinger SE group.
