Weir Secures £10m North Sea Contract
Weir Engineering Services, part of the multinational Weir Group, has been awarded a contract worth £10m, to provide maintenance services on all Shell U.K. Exploration and Production (Shell Expro) installations in the North Sea.
The three-year deal will see Weir Engineering Services maintain and repair pumps and associated equipment across Shell Expro's network of North Sea platforms.

In that time, we demonstrated our ability to generate and implement innovative solutions that keep costs and down-time to an absolute minimum.
