Chris Stones, Sales Director for Oil & Gas at Servelec Controls said: “The fact that we continue to secure new project work in these trying times shows how important our services are to the UK and how much our clients trust us. We’ve built strong relationships with our clients over the years and they place a great level of faith in our services, the solutions we provide and our safe systems of work. We are still here for them, as always ensuring that safety underpins everything we do, so that we can all come out of the other side together.”
Having received a new order for the upgrade of a fire and gas system for a UK oil terminal prior to the lockdown, Servelec Controls used their newly implemented COVID-19-specific safe systems of work in order to safely deliver the project to meet the original three month timescale. All design and documentation work was undertaken remotely, supported by virtual meetings to keep the client updated. Social distancing measures at the system integrator’s manufacturing facility in Sheffield enabled the construction to go ahead and the factory acceptance test (FAT) to involve the client, with the final solution now being delivered to site ready for installation once contractors are allowed onto the premises.
