The contracts are scheduled to begin in 2005, with the work spread over their 18 year duration.
“We are delighted to have won these long-term maintenance contracts which represent a significant step in the development of our long-term maintenance business and in our business in South East Asia,” said Allister Langlands, Chief Executive of Wood Group Gas Turbine Services. “These contracts follow our successful implementation of similar long-term packaged maintenance contracts in other regions of the world.
