 An Aberdeen-based supply-base operator has landed a £50 million quayside logistics and waste management contract in the southern North Sea.

The announcement involves a mixture of new business and renewed contracts, ranging from one to five years in duration for a range of customers which includes Centrica Exploration and Production, INEOS and Centrica Storage Ltd.

Privately-owned ASCO – which is celebrating its 50th year in business this year – operates globally from 17 bases in seven countries, and employs around 1,700 people. 

The company also regards this major deal as a platform on which to attract more new business in the southern sector of the N. Sea.

ASCO’s Regional Director UK SNS, Glenn Hurren said: “We are delighted that, against a challenging economic backdrop and a competitive tendering environment, our milestone year has already yielded many important pieces of work for us. 

“As well as our unrivalled half-century reputation for providing trusted services of the very highest standard, clients tell us that our excellent safety culture and track record played an important role in ASCO being selected as their provider of choice.

 “Additionally, our ability to combine the services for which we are known with diversification into new areas such as decommissioning means that we are able to evolve in step with the needs of our clients.  This will stand us in good stead as we embrace the ongoing challenges which continue to prevail in our industry.”
