The oil jetty is a critical infrastructure in our port and it ensures the safe delivery of fuel from ship to shore and vice versa. It will be called to play a more significant role in the future with the transformation of the Port into a regional and bunkering hub. The MPA appointed us in 2014 to rehabilitate and improve the overall safety at the oil jetty at Mer Rouge which has been affected by corrosion and partly damaged by a cyclone in 2013.
This is a challenging engineering project and our team of electrical and mechanical engineers extensively researching on the root cause of the problems and proposing solution for a longer lifetime of the new installations. We have also reviewed the risk zoning of the area and proposing solution to better mitigate risks and hazards.
Working on BIM platform, we are closely coordinating all the services to be installed to ensure that the contractors are able to perform the work within the shortest delay, while fully grasping the extent of works through 3D visuals.
We have also proposed several innovative ideas to improve risk management and health and safety of MPA workers, reduce energy consumption and avoid corrosion damage in the future.
Our fire specialists have done extensive fire risks analysis under various scenarios and proposing the best value for money solution to better and quickly combat any fire.
We are also embarking the MPA on a wide scale SCADA to monitor and operate critical equipment on the oil jetty.
