Shell U.K. Extends Rolls Wood Group Deal
Shell U.K. has extended the gas turbine maintenance contract held by Aberdeen, the Scotland-based Rolls Wood Group (RWG), to 2015. The contract includes maintenance, repair and overhaul of 27 Rolls-Royce Avon and RB211 gas turbines operating on seven offshore platforms in the U.K.’s North Sea.
The extended contract retains the same work scope as the original agreement, received in 1999, for maintaining gas turbine drivers for electrical power generation and gas compressor sets. Over the life of the contract, reliability of the gas turbines has increased with time between overhauls being extended, Wood Group said.
RWG, a joint venture between Rolls-Royce and Wood Group, also provides overhaul services to other Shell companies, including Shell Sarawak, Shell Malampaya, and Shell Brunei.
