ASCO Wins Over £10m in Contracts with NORM Solutions Business

ASCO has secured four new contracts for NORM decontamination and disposal services with major operators, worth more than £10million.

NORM Solutions, part of ASCO's environmental service division has won multi-year contracts with four leading operators to provide safe management and decontamination of naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) on North Sea installations as they are decommissioned.

NORM Solutions will handle the receipt and decontamination of all types of offshore materials and equipment, safely cleaning the items to be returned offshore or recycled. They will also handle NORM-contaminated sludges and liquids, repackaging these for safe onward transport and disposal. The contracts will be further supported by deploying ASCO's radiation protection supervisors, who manage the offshore processes required to identify and safely store and offload any contaminated material.

ASCO’s state-of-the-art NORM decontamination facility, based in Aberdeen, is fully authorised by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), and is designed to operate at the highest standards when treating hazardous materials.

Chris Lloyd, head of environmental and decommissioning at ASCO, said: "Since ASCO acquired full ownership of NORM Solutions in 2019, the business has gone from strength to strength.

“The quality of our facilities and the professionalism of our team at NORM Solutions has played a major part in these contract successes and we greatly appreciate our customers faith in the services we deliver.”

We have unique facilities which, together with ASCO's other service lines of logistics, materials management and supply base services, provide a fully integrated solution for our customers.”

The UK continental shelf has led the way in global decommissioning activity for the past decade and as this activity ramps up further, combined with a renewed focus on exploration and production, Mr Lloyd anticipates continued growth at NORM Solutions to service increasing demand in the market.

ASCO is the leading materials management and logistics company for the global energy industry. Headquartered in Aberdeen, UK, ASCO operates from over 70 locations worldwide and employs c.1,400 people.
