Ferguson Modular Wins Two More Substantial Contracts

Ferguson Modular has received two substantial contract wins for their Hire Division. The orders from Acergy and BG Group are valued at approximately £230,000.

The orders, for various 10.3m and 7.6m accommodation units arrive on the back of several other recent major contracts secured.

Accommodation has been supplied on Acergy's Falcon vessel which is operating in the North Sea and also for BG Tunisia's (a subsidiary of BG Group) Miskar Platform offshore in the Mediterranean Sea, North Africa.

The Aberdeenshire-based company is enjoying an unprecedented demand for offshore accommodation modules due to the buoyant marketplace and as a result of their solutions for large POB capacities.

Gary Wilson, Divisional Manager, Module Hire comments "We have established a reputation for supplying units on time to anywhere in the world. We now have units in Africa, Australia, Canada, Holland, Norway, Russia and Singapore but the North Sea still remains our core business as this is where our reputation has been built over the last 30 years.

Gary adds, "Important factors in all our recent contract wins has been due to our ability to deliver on time. The quality of our accommodation modules has also been highlighted from feedback we have received on our new units which has been excellent. New features now fitted as standard include under floor heating in the wet units, advanced split air conditioning systems that can be independently controlled in each cabin and increased sound insulation for excellent 24 hour sleeping ability which is an important factor on drilling rigs and production platforms.

Mike McKay, Divisional Manager, Manufacturing, also adds "With our Standard designs we are able to manufacture our fleet modules within quicker lead times and on purchase contracts apply a fixed price which means there is no price escalation for the client, an important benefit for any customer. With the industry so busy at present we are well positioned to meet the demands of our clients due to the increased personnel and the ability to run our facility 24 hours. This will help us secure future business due to us having the infrastructure in place to meet delivery times which has been a key element in securing most of our current projects."
