Reaching Milestones across the INPEX-operated Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities

July 16, 2018 Asia-Pacific , Australia

Congratulations to our MEC-1 team working on the structural, mechanical and piping (SMP) package on the INPEX-operated Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities in Darwin, Australia, who were awarded the much sought after 2017 HSSE Excellence Gold Standard Contractor of the Year Award.

In recognition of their leading safety performance and culture on site, the team, a joint venture with UGL, are second time winners having been awarded Contractor of the Year in 2015. 

Winners of the award are selected from the top three subcontractors on site which have demonstrated excellence in Incident & Injury Free (IIF) culture, support of the project values and winners of the various project awards such as the Emerald award (for environmental excellence), Black Belt award (for team excellence) and Monthly Gold standard achievement. 

Steve Warlow, Project Director, accepted the award on behalf of the UGL Kentz JV from John Bramley, Project Director, JKC, and Hiroshi Kishimoto, Construction Manager, JKC, at a presentation which was attended by a number of the MEC-1 project team and senior JKC and INPEX Management. 

Steve said: “Being awarded the Contractor of the Year Award for 2017 was an absolute triumph for everyone involved in the MEC-1 package and is testament to the diligence and sheer hard work everyone has put into building a solid safety culture on site from the ground up. Over the project we have been tested and not found lacking in our drive for world class safety performance, I am delighted to receive the award on behalf of all the team on MEC-1 and acknowledge their hard work and dedication.”

The MEC-1 team also celebrated another milestone with their colleagues on our electrical and instrumentation (ELE-1) package as both teams, combined, have executed over 20 million man-hours on the INPEX-operated Ichthys Project Onshore LNG Facilities.
