Hertel has worked at the Stanlow refinery for more than 24 years and has more than 500 employees on site.

David Fitzsimons, managing director of Hertel UK and Ireland, said: "The new contract is a demonstration of the close working relationship we have developed with Shell UK."

"Our dedicated on-site management presence has helped us to gain a deeper understanding of the refinery's needs and means we can react quickly."

"We are also involved in the planning of maintenance, which enables us to be pro- active in supporting the smooth operation of the refinery and ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum."
Planning is currently under way for a major overhaul programme of a number of production units starting in January 2010.
