VATTENFALL AWARDS SCOTTISH FIRM OFFSHORE O&M CONTRACT
Aberdeen-headquartered PD&MS Group has secured a three-year O&M contract with Vattenfall to support its European offshore wind portfolio for an undisclosed sum.
The contract, which also has options to extend for a further two-year period, will see the international engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) specialist providing a wide range of key support across the developer’s windfarms in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark.
The contract PD&MS’ builds on the delivery of several onshore and offshore wind projects for its clients including SSE Renewables and Moray East Offshore Windfarm.
PD&MS head of renewables business development Thomas Barter (pictured: right) said: “We are thrilled that Vattenfall has recognised our highly transferable skills gained from years of successfully operating across oil and gas and other energy sectors and chosen us as one of their long-term service providers.
“This new contract solidifies PD&MS’ position as a key supplier for future wind developments, such as ScotWind and other future European projects.”
Project director and energy transition leader at PD&MS Mark Davidson (pictured: left) added: “Winning this three-year minimum contract with Vattenfall following a competitive tender process is testament to our team’s connected competencies which match the disciplines needed by offshore wind.
“We have an extensive track record for delivering innovative and cost-effective project solutions which have proven to reduce cost and maximise asset uptime to create significant ongoing value within the offshore renewable energy sector.
“Underpinned by our flexible proactive culture we are well placed to further service the UK and European decarbonisation agenda.”
PD&MS was founded in 2002 and is owned by private equity firm Inflexion, which completed a secondary buyout in 2014.
