Rolls-Royce, Total Sign Offshore Engine Maintenance Deal
Rolls-Royce and TOTAL E&P UK plc have signed a multi-million dollar contract for the technical support of key equipment in service on offshore platforms operated by TOTAL.
TOTAL E&P UK plc has awarded Rolls-Royce an extension to an existing contract covering its Avon and RB211 gas turbines installed on the Alwyn North and Elgin gas production platforms in the North Sea.
The Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA) contract is the second significant such contract secured by the Rolls-Royce energy business in recent weeks. It follows the recent signing of an £11.2 million agreement with Metragaz, operator of the Maghreb pipeline supplying Spain and Portugal with natural gas from Algeria via Morocco.
The five Avon units in the Alwyn Field undertake power generation and gas compression duties and have been in service since the 1980s. The new LTSA, which runs for just over six years, is an extension to a similar contract signed in 1991.
