CAN Group, has been awarded a £4 million contract to provide asset integrity services in the North Sea as the firm also announces international growth.

The Aberdeen-headquartered company has secured work with Fairfield Energy aboard the Dunlin platform in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

The three year contract with Fairfield Energy will be led by ENGTEQ, the group’s integrity engineering business stream, to provide services such as inspection management and data analysis with CAN’s operations division providing inspection execution and ancillary services on the pressure systems and structures in support of the asset integrity programme.

Adam Byrne, Operations Director, CAN Group, said: ““We have enjoyed a sustained period of demand in the North Sea and, as part of our strategic growth plans, we are increasingly rolling out our services across other geographic markets.

“The internationalisation of our business has seen CAN move into West Africa, Asia Pacific and North America and we are well placed to make the most of these opportunities.”

The latest contract awards come shortly after CAN Group announced it had secured two major contract renewals safe-guarding 150 plus jobs.

Formed in 1986, when it pioneered industrial rope access techniques offshore, CAN Group is now a diversified market leader with four distinct business streams. The CAN Group has a £70 million turnover and a workforce of more than 700 people.
