oil services firm Wood Group has been awarded its first major contract in Burma.

The deal to overhaul and upgrade three gas turbines for a power company is for one year and worth $13 million (£8.4m). It has been secured by the Aberdeen firm’s Wood Group GTS division.

The work is expected to improve the total output of the gas turbines and provide increased reliability to the country’s power production, Wood Group said yesterday.

Frank Avery, president of Wood Group GTS, power plant services, said: “Wood Group GTS’ experience in fulfilling maintenance requirements as well as their ability to demonstrate value and flexibility were key factors in awarding this contract.

“Our extensive custom-built solution is designed to help stabilise electrical power for critical supply.”
