Subsea services specialist Bibby Offshore has awarded a frame agreement for rigging equipment inspection and wire rope management to Aberdeen-based marine and subsea business IMES.
The agreement, potentially worth a seven-figure sum, has a duration of three years with a further two, one-year options.
IMES executive chairman, Rod Buchan, said: “This agreement from a major client of IMES is an important strategic milestone for us as we pursue our vision of becoming the leading provider in the subsea and marine sector.”
The contract covers Bibby Offshore’s fleet of vessels used to deliver subsea construction, ROV intervention, decommissioning, and inspection repair and maintenance in the North Sea and beyond.
Jason Smith, chief operating officer at IMES, said: “We identified Bibby Offshore as a highly important potential client as part of our strategic growth plans, and we are excited to be working with such a prestigious organisation going forward.”
