XPD8 wins North Sea platforms monitoring contract

XPD8 Solutions, an Aberdeen-based asset integrity management specialist, has secured a significant two-year contract with CNR International.

The agreement will see the firm providing condition monitoring services to five CNR platforms in the North Sea.

Gordon Ellis, operations director at XPD8, said: “Over the past 12 months we have secured a great deal of international growth with contracts across West Africa and Asia Pacific. This latest award from CNR International shows that as well as expanding globally we continue to provide a valuable service in our own back yard.

“The downturn facing the oil & gas industry has made it more important than ever for operators to know their equipment is working at optimum levels. Effective condition monitoring is crucial in ensuring that production continues at the desired rate. In addition, the correct system will flag up where machinery is not running efficiently, helping to avoid breakdowns and the costs this ensues in downtime and repairs.”
