The scope of work includes the design, fabrication, assembly, inspection, testing and supply of four shell and tube heat exchangers, to be made by Glacier Energy’s heat transfer solutions division, based in Aberdeen, UK. They are due for delivery in January 2021.
PBS is a new organisation based in Aberdeen which consists of three separate companies – Ponticelli UK Ltd, Brand UK Ltd and Semco Maritime Ltd. As of 1 May 2020, PBS has been awarded a five-year contract to provide general operations and maintenance services to all TEPUK assets in the North Sea.
Commenting on the award, Andy Scott, director of Glacier Energy’s heat transfer division, said: “A key factor in securing this award was our close collaboration with the client and ability to provide a custom-engineered solution to eliminate potential and substantial modifications to the platform.
Glacier Energy was formed in 2011. In 2013, Glacier Energy acquired Ross Offshore, renowned specialists with decades of experience in the installation, repair, refurbishment and replacement of heat exchangers. That was followed by the acquisition of MSL Heat Transfer in 2014, which strengthened the company’s capability in the design, manufacture and repair of radiators and coolers.
Today, Glacier Energy is made up of four divisions – heat transfer solutions, welding solutions, onsite machining solutions and inspection & NDT services.
