Fred. Olsen Windcarrier celebrates 3 million hours without a lost time injury – Think First – Act Safely

The new build construction of Brave Tern and Bold Tern are making good progress in Dubai and the Fred Olsen motto of Think First; Act Safely is alive and well in the process.

Lamprell Energy as the EPC contractor are reaching the final stages of construction on Brave Tern and are focusing on an engine start up target in late December. The final fit out works are in progress and the remaining structural work on the funnel and helideck and being prepared for erection. Having cut steel 15 months ago the Brave Tern has consumed 2.3 million man hours and is due for delivery in May 2012.

Her sister ship the Bold Tern is following behind and nearing 1 million man hours with delivery planned in September of the same year.

Lamprell Energy’s Project Manager Mr. Darren MacDonald said “we are extremely proud of our safety achievements on this program and it is a credit to all involved to have exceeded 3 million hours without a Lost Time Injury. The input and experience from the Fred Olsen site team and their attention to safety has been a welcomed contribution and both parties are intent on seeing the vessel delivered with a zero LTI record”.

The management of Lamprell and Fred Olsen presented awards to 26 workers who have been recognized as positively influencing the safety aspects of the project. Lamprell has a positive approach to safety and each month there is a celebration held with all personnel involved on the project to recognize achievements and focus on the importance of thinking and acting safely.
