Aberdeen-headquartered PD&MS Group has secured a three-year operations and maintenance (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 leading 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.
This award underpins PD&MS’ ever-growing position as a key supplier in O&M and inspection in the offshore wind sector, and builds on the success of the safe and efficient delivery of several onshore and offshore wind projects for its clients including SSE Renewables and Moray East Offshore Windfarm.
Now in its 20th year, PD&MS is a multi-discipline EPCC contractor and has been delivering mid-value capital projects, O&M, general modifications, upgrade projects, late life asset management and decommissioning services across the energy sector. It currently has a workforce of around 550 in Scotland and 100 overseas, with operations in Aberdeen, Glasgow Azerbaijan.
Thomas Barter head of renewables business development at PD&MS said:
The firm’s energy transition credentials have grown significantly in the past few years. As well as expanding its offshore wind clients’ portfolio, it was recently granted ORE Catapult’s Fit 4 Offshore Renewables status for its EPC services. The programme was developed to help the UK supply chain to reconfigure and deliver services in the offshore renewable energy sector. In the last 12 months, the business has also acquired low carbon engineering specialists Synergie Environ and front-end consultancy Optimus.
