Subsea 7 Hires Wilton Engineering for Dong Energy Project

Wilton Engineering Services – the international design, engineering and fabrication business – has secured a multi-million dollar contract with Subsea 7.

Wilton Engineering, a Wilton Group company, will construct support clamps for work on DONG Energy’s SIRI Caisson Support Project in the Danish sector of the North Sea.

Subsea 7 announced last year it had won an offshore engineering and construction frame agreement with DONG Energy in support of the project.

The Wilton Group, which employs 700 people at businesses in Aberdeen, Dundee, Teesside, Great Yarmouth and Brazil, has secured oil and gas contracts worth more than $87 million (GBP 55 million) in the past four months.

“This latest project serves to underline our capabilities to work with global companies to deliver design, engineering and fabrication solutions. We’re delighted to be working on this project," said Wilton Business Development Director Des Hatfield.

Wilton Engineering managing director Steven Pearson said: “Our enhanced capabilities mean we can provide an integrated solution for clients and its turnkey projects.”

Wilton Engineering is carrying out the major task of fabricating large caisson clamps. This permanent solution consists of installing three piles next to the SIRI subsea storage tank and connecting them to the caissons with the fabricated clamps including cable stays. This is part of an on-going program.

SIRI is located in the North West part of the Danish sector of the North Sea. The SIRI platform is moored in 197 feet (60 meters) of water and is a combined wellhead, processing and accommodation facility.

Wilton Engineering provides bespoke, high-quality engineering and fabrication solutions to the offshore and petrochemical industries from its 50-acre Port Clarence offshore base on the River Tees.
