International energy logistics provider Peterson has been awarded a three-year contract by ODE Asset Management (ODE AM) to provide integrated logistics services from the Port of Lowestoft.
Peterson will support with quayside services, fuel bunkering, road transport and other logistics services for ODE AM’s seven offshore managed assets in the Southern North Sea.
Peterson’s full Lighthouse suite of technologies will be utilised as part of the contract, bringing significant efficiency benefits across road transport, vessel voyages, and with container rentals.
In addition, Peterson will establish a Control Tower at their Lowestoft facility, from which they will coordinate all the activities relating to ODE AM’s vessels in port.
Peterson’s Control Tower team will monitor activity, creating an accurate flow of information to facilitate data-driven decisions and to proactively measure performance against agreed KPIs.
Jason Hendry, Managing Director for England and Renewables Strategy at Peterson, said: “We are delighted ODE AM have chosen Peterson as their logistics partner in the Southern North Sea, and we look forward to supporting their operations from our Lowestoft base, where we have a long-term commitment with Associated British Ports (ABP).
“The continued development of local talent through apprenticeship programmes and investment in training and development is an integral part of our ambitious plans in Suffolk. This contract award greatly assists our efforts in this regard.”
Jaye Deighton, Projects and Innovation Director at Peterson, added: “We are excited to work with ODE AM and support them with the full Lighthouse suite of technologies. Through Lighthouse, ODE AM will benefit from digital assurance at every step of the cargo demand planning process, ensuring safe and consistent delivery of operational processes.”
Shaun Hutchinson, UK Technical Services Director at ODE Asset Management, commented, “It is very clear that Peterson share our ambitions to produce conventional energies cleaner and unlock value for our clients through resource sharing. This is a significant contract award for ODE AM, and we are pleased to be drawing on Peterson’s innovative technologies to support the various assets that we operate and maintain across the UKCS.”
The contract will take effect from December 1st, 2022.
