Safety milestones for Drydocks World
The Drydocks World & Maritime World group has reiterated its commitment to Occupational Health and Safety during an event commemorating World Safety & Health Day today.
The shipyard announced major safety milestones on two of its key projects including achievement of 2.5 million man hours LTI-free on the pioneering DolWin beta project and 2 million man hours LTI-free in April, 2014 on the UK’s Solan subsea oil storage tank being constructed at the shipyard.
The environmentally friendly DolWin beta will act as a 900 MW electricity transmission link that will connect offshore wind farms located at the DolWin wind farm area near Helgoland in the German sector of the North Sea.
The Solan subsea oil storage tank is of dimensions 45 x 45 x 25 metres and is being built at the Drydocks World - Dubai facility for Premier Oil. The Solan field is located in the UK North Sea, west of the Shetland Islands.
His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World & Maritime World says the Dubai yard is committed to propagating a high-performing and sustainable safety according to the Zero Harm slogan within the organisation.
“We would like to ensure that risk controls are committed at all levels. This underpins our approach to project delivery, at the same time encouraging innovation to counter, existing or developing risks,” Buamim said.
