AN ABERDEEN based oil safety manufacturer has renewed its global partnership with Shell for a further three years to help promote goal zero.
Safety equipment company, Draegar Marine and Offshore, a division of the Draegar group who is worth a whopping €3.5bn (£3.09bn) , have been based in Aberdeen since 2010.
The three-year agreement includes the provision of portable gas detection equipment and a variety of safety technology for Shell’s offshore plants and global operations.
Paul Davidson account manager at Draegar Marine and Offshore said: “We are delighted to welcome this new framework agreement with Shell and look forward to further supporting its operations both in the North of Scotland and wider UK.
“Shell’s approach to safety is market-leading and we are delighted to be able to play a part in its drive towards Goal Zero ambition to achieve no harm and no leaks across all of its operations.”
As part of the deal, emerging products from Draegar will be tested out as prototypes at Shell before they are sent out to the market.
The agreement also includes purchase and rental options which follow the launch of Draegar Hire – the company’s new £2M UK rental division established in Aberdeen this year.
Chrystal Landgraf, regional HSSE manager at Shell said: “In Draegar, we have found a contract partner with whom we can work globally driving our efficiency and safety and further contributing to our overall objective of Goal Zero.
“Our ambition is to achieve no harm and no leaks across all of our operations.
“Everyone working for Shell strives to achieve this goal each day. We want to help improve safety performances throughout the energy industry.”
The company hope the agreement will expand to further work at Shell’s operations in the North Sea and the wider UK.
