Oil and gas services giant Wood Group has won a five-year deal, worth $120 million (£86m), with Babcock International.

The contract will see the Aberdeen-based firm’s industrial services arm work on a number of Babcock’s sites across the UK, supporting more than 400 jobs.

The framework agreement includes surface preparation, protective coatings, scaffolding, insulation, rope access, cleaning and fire sentry services for Babcock, owner of the Rosyth dockyard in Fife.

Today’s deal – which has the option for a five-year extension – comes just weeks after Wood Group Industrial Services (WGIS) announced its first contract in the UK petrochemicals sector with a five-year agreement to provide services to Valero Energy’s Pembroke refinery in south-west Wales.

Hugh Pelham, managing director of WGIS, said: “Securing this new contract is testament to our track record in the marine sector and relationship with Babcock International.

“We have a strong history of delivering marine projects safely, to schedule and to budget. I look forward to building on this across further Babcock Group sites, and successfully continuing our long-standing relationship with this key client.”
