Sodexo, the world leader in Quality of Life services, has announced two new contracts worth a combined value of £4 million.
The new contracts are with Chrysaor, the UK’s leading independent oil and gas company in the North Sea and BW Offshore, a leading global provider of floating production services to the oil and gas industry.
Sodexo’s contract with Chrysaor includes the delivering of facilities management services both onshore at Chrysaor’s offices at the iconic Capitol Building in Aberdeen and offshore at three of Chrysaor’s recently acquired North Sea assets, Everest, Lomond and Greater Armada.
Sodexo is delivering catering, cleaning, security and reception services for around 250 Chrysaor employees based at Capitol House and catering, housekeeping and laundry services offshore for the 200 plus Chrysaor personnel on the three assets.
The contract with BW Offshore sees Sodexo provide catering, housekeeping and laundry aboard a new floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO), the BW Catcher. It has a crew of 110 onboard, has an oil storage capacity of 650,000 barrels and a processing capacity of 60,000 barrels per day.
The BW Catcher mobilised from Singapore construction yard at the end of August and has now reached the end of its tow to the Catcher field in the North Sea. Two Sodexo chef managers were onboard for the duration, to support the crew on the journey.
Susan Elston, senior vice president for Sodexo’s Offshore & Marine business in the UK and Ireland, said “We are delighted to have been awarded these contracts. We believe that in the challenging environment of the oil and gas industry the wellbeing and safety of our customers is critical. We are looking forward to partnering with both Chrysaor and BW Offshore to ensure their employees are given the safest and most comfortable working, and living, environment we can.”
