Global automated solutions provider Rockwell Automation has secured a £2.5million contract with a major North Sea operator
A team of around eight engineers will supply control, ESD (Emergency Shutdown System) and fire and gas systems to cover an additional module on a platform in the North Sea.
The Rockwell Automation Aberdeen operation, based at Bridge of Don’s Science and Technology Park, has three main strands; support and maintenance, projects and engineering design services, which support a number of major oil and gas clients.
Jim Donnelly, oil and gas account manager at Rockwell Automation, said: “This is a significant contract win for Rockwell Automation and reflects not only the capability of our offshore safety solutions but also the hard work which is being done by our team throughout the energy sector.
“The oil and gas industry, and particularly the North Sea, is a major sector for Rockwell Automation, which is evidenced by our recent contract wins and continued growth in Aberdeen.”
A multinational company with customers in more than 80 countries, Rockwell Automation employs around 21,000 staff across the world, specialising in process control, process safety, power management and process information systems and services designed to give clients a competitive advantage.
Since reinforcing their commitment to the UK oil and gas sector through the acquisition of previously established automation businesses, ICS Triplex and Silvertech, Rockwell Automation continues to strengthen develop its offering through the PlantPAx process automation system, Allen Bradley and ICS Triplex product lines.
