This major milestone equates to more than 8 million man-hours worked on our projects without a lost time incident.
The Hudong Shipyard is contracted to deliver a total of four vessels including the Pan Asia and Pan Americas (which have already delivered on October 13, 2017 and January 31, 2018 respectively) and two additional newbuildings: Hull 1665A and Hull 1666A expected to deliver by 2019.
A massive congratulations to the Hudong Shipyard and the entire project team in China on this major achievement. This milestone would not have been possible without their dedication to safe practices – and the guidance of our partners, including Shell, who have also been involved from the beginning.
The collaboration between our site/project teams and that of our partners and charterers has been instrumental in the success of this milestone and highlights the need to work together to achieve safe operations.
Good HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) is an “all hands on deck” operating principle. It is not just about vessels – it is about people first and foremost and that includes those working day in and out to bring the vessels to life. We take pride in considering and expecting consistent safety standards across the board in the same way if we were to control the site.
Let’s keep up the great work, together.
