Aberdeen-based oil and gas service company Centrifuges Un-Limited is celebrating the award of a contract which marks a new era for the company.

Working with Wood Group PSN to mirror existing mechanical equipment, the company will design and build a fuel treatment system to ATEX Zone 2 standard, and install the latest electrical control system for CNR International to use during the decommissioning of the Murchison platform from 2014.

Commenting on the contract Centrifuges Un-Limited Managing Director Jim Shiach said: “This contract was won against major Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) competition and represents a significant step for us because it breaks with the tradition of offering brand new equipment.

This allows our clients the option of upgrading existing equipment in line with all relevant industry safety standards whilst adding state-of-the-art technology.

“This strategy offers a new concept to the customer by removing the need for large sums of capital investment in new kit, and reduces carbon footprint by reusing existing gear.  Additionally, it provides an alternative niche market for us which is proving to be very successful.”

He added: “In this project, it also offers reduced delivery times, Management of Changes (MOCs) and technology with a proven history of success for this application.”

Centrifuges Un-Limited specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of a range of equipment including fuel/oily water separators, mud coolers for high pressure high temperature (HPHT) fluid management and the Elvos™ slops treatment system.  Key markets include the UK, Norway, Egypt, Brazil, the Middle East and North Africa.
