HRL Awards Aramark Logistics Contract

The offshore division of Aramark has secured a contract with Hydrocarbon Resources Limited (HRL), which is part of leading energy and essential services provider Centrica plc.

The two year contract, which was awarded after a competitive tender, sees Aramark supplying logistics and helideck staff to HRL, which operates the North and South Morecambe gas fields in the East Irish Sea. The Aberdeen-based award-winning food and facilities management company already provides hotel services for HRL.

Aramark now supplies HRL with an experienced team of logistics and helideck staff, including a logistics supervisor, logistics assistant, crane and radio operator, deck crew, deck foreman, material controller and storeman.

Alison Wood, regional operations director at Aramark, said: "Our partnership with HRL further strengthens Aramark's offshore logistics portfolio and we're looking forward to further developing the relationship in the coming year."

Chris Foster, offshore installation manager at HRL, said: "The provision of the logistics personnel as part of our existing contract with Aramark, represents an opportunity to build synergies within the operation by utilizing Aramark's core skills more effectively, and building on the relationship already established."
