AEC has enjoyed a successful partnership with our client , that specialises in offshore construction (platforms) and oil and gas exploration.
AEC initially worked with our client, onshore in Baku, Azerbaijan, carrying out occupational hygiene (OH) monitoring (welding, noise, lighting and painting) during fabrication works of jacket and platform for oil exploration in the Caspian. AEC then returned to Baku to carry out an asbestos survey of an exploration (dive) vessel in the Caspian.
Following this work, we worked extensively for their Middle East base, in Jebel Ali, Dubai, U.A.E. This work has primarily been OH works (noise, dust, welding fume, isocyanates, & lighting) both in the fabrication yard at Jebel Ali and also offshore Qatar, U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia aboard pipe-laying and derrick barges.
AEC has also carried out asbestos surveys on vessels in dock at Jebel Ali, as well as offshore Qatar, U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia, and in dock at Rotterdam, Netherlands. As a result of these works, we undergo specific training such as helicopter (HUET), sea survival, H2S, and fire-fighting.
This training is kept up to date for AEC staff
We also carried out asbestos training to BOHS P405 certified asbestos management ion U.A,E., as well as the international asbestos qualification W504 for our client's Singapore office at the main fabrication site in Batam, Indonesia, as well as bespoke asbestos training on board DB 101 in Malaysian waters.
AEC has facilitated the training of large numbers of their staff in asbestos, for a number of their projects, and particularly as a requirement for works offshore Australia. AEC have assisted in the asbestos surveys of and development of asbestos management procedures for the majority of their own vessels working in the Gulf of Arabia.
AEC’s ongoing role to provide regular monitoring for noise and other contaminants assist our client to meet their own international standards, by ensuring offshore works in Asia are to USA & UK standards, and those of the end-user client, typically blue chip organisations such as Shell, BP and Rasgas (Qatar).
Since the successful completion of the initial works in Baku, AEC have continued to work with our client across several of their offices, in several different countries.
This is an indication of the continued working relationship, and level of service provided to a company with several bases, offices, who work in different countries with different laws.
The relationship has gone from strength to strength, and continues to this date.
