Charity Begins at Home

Bilfinger Industrial Services has secured a three-year contract extension with BP Chemicals Ltd worth £15 million.

The multi-service deal extends a previous agreement which sees the business provide a range of services, including mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, scaffolding and insulation, for the BP Chemicals owned facilities located on the 370-acre Saltend Chemicals Park, alongside the Humber estuary. There is an option to extend the contract up to 2024. Bilfinger says the agreement will secure approximately 90 existing jobs at the site.

The new agreement follows a recent five-year contract extension with BP to provide maintenance services at the Forties Pipeline System Terminals in Grangemouth and the Sullom Voe Terminal in Shetland, which secured 210 jobs. 


Flying high

Goodrich Actuations Systems Limited, a UTC Aerospace Systems company, has awarded OCS a five-year (2+2+1), multi-service contract at their Wolverhampton site. OCS has been working with Goodrich Actuation Systems Limited since 2011 to deliver facilities services at the company’s five UK sites.

 The contract for the Wolverhampton site involves a range of services including reception and mail room, waste management, cleaning, security and catering.


Lexia Solutions Group buys OCS Environmental Services

Earlier this month, Lexia completed the acquisition of OCS Environmental Services - asbestos removal, scaffolding, thermal insulation and protective coatings. The division will continue to operate as a separate company and will in due course be rebranded to trade as Rhodar Industrial Services - Rhodar being Lexia's asbestos removal brand.
