ICR Integrity (ICR), global provider of specialist maintenance, integrity, and inspection solutions, has been awarded a long-term hire contract with Aker Solutions for the provision of Quickflange™ weldless connections for bp’s offshore assets in Angola.
The award recognises ICR’s commitment to growing the business further in West Africa having appointed Petrowork as its local partner, with offices in Luanda, for repair and integrity services including both Quickflange™ and Technowrap™ engineered composite repairs. This allows the company to hold equipment in-country and have local, trained technicians on-hand to respond quickly to client requests.
Phil Paterson, Business Development Manager at ICR, said: “We are delighted to secure this contract which builds on our existing long-term relationship with Aker Solutions. ICR is committed to supporting our global clients and we continue to invest in key regions to ensure a dedicated offering is always delivered. This contract follows on from the ongoing rental agreement and demonstrates the relationship we have with Aker Solutions as well the internationally recognised quality of the products and services we offer. Quickflange™ is qualified and approved to several international type standards and is proven in improving pipeline integrity which is imperative to our clients.”
Fred Nordheim, Supply Chain Manager Aker Solutions, added “We are very active in the region and the Quickflange™ technology has proven to be a safe and effective solution for us on our brownfield modifications and maintenance project. It’s great to continue working with ICR in Angola.”
