Oxygen Pipeline Replacement for BOC

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

The regional site services team based at BOC Scunthorpe have recently completed an offsite project for BOC in Rotherham.

 

ENGIE Fabricom was asked to remove an existing branch section from an oxygen pipeline and replace it with a new pulled bend.  The pipeline, which runs under an operational rail bridge and over the River Don presented significant access difficulties.  The project had a tight timescale but was completed on time to allow the site to re-start.

 

Richard Allison, BOC’s Pipeline, Facilities and Stores Manager commented:

‘”Having worked with ENGIE Fabricom for many years on preventative maintenance tasks, I had no hesitation in approaching them to carry out this project, removing a ‘tee’ section of pipeline and replacing it with a swept bend.  The task of removing the 12” pipeline was complex as it was suspended over a canal and beneath an operational train / tram track (see photos below).

 The level of detail in the pre-phase modelling and stress calculations coupled with the experience and knowledge of the whole team made the project run smoothly, even when the project scope expanded to incorporate more work mid project.  The proactive nature of the whole onsite and back room team ensured the project was completed safety and within the tight time constraints, which the customer production outage offered.  Thanks to Joe Hodgson, ENGIE Fabricom’s Regional Site Services Manager and his team for all their hard work.”

ENGIE Fabricom is one of the first organisations to achieve ISO 45001 in their industry sector

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

ENGIE Fabricom UK achieves ISO 45001 certification on the first attempt.

We recently underwent a process of migration from the OHSAS 18001 standard to the new ISO 45001 standard with Lloyds register and were successful with no non-conformances identified.

ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organisation to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.

ISO 45001 is intended to be applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, type and nature. ISO 45001 enables an organisation, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing.

The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and follows other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.  It takes into account other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions.

Kevin Copley, HSEQ Director for ENGIE Fabricom comments: “We have been advised that we are one of the first organisations in our industry sector in this region of the UK to be certified to the standard by Lloyd’s Register.  This is a fantastic achievement for the Company.”

This award was one of twelve presented on the day for each operational areas of the Scunthorpe site.

Joe Hodgson has commented:  “I would like to express my thanks to the whole project team, from the facility for the delivery of high quality fabrications to the site team for a safe installation during tight time constraints.  The team have shown an exemplary attitude towards safety given the difficult nature of the site.”

Mark Wingate, Director of EPC & EPCm commented, “This award clearly demonstrates British Steel’s recognition of the ENGIE Fabricom project site team and how they have operated to the highest standards whilst challenged with extreme site conditions and timescales.

On behalf of the business, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved, such performances provide a significant advantage to the business when clients are looking to select suppliers for future projects.”

Kevin Copley, ENGIE Fabricom’s HSEQ Director commented, “This is an excellent recognition of the performance of the whole project team and is great for the whole Company. This award is especially important to us in supporting British Steel with the ongoing process in improving their safety performance across the site and shows they value the contribution of high performing organisations that can add to this process.

The project was undertaken in some very challenging site conditions against a tight schedule which makes the fact the project had zero injuries or near miss incidents even more impressive.”

Fabricom Oil, Gas and Power Limited change their name to ENGIE Fabricom UK Limited

By | Corporate News, News | No Comments

Fabricom, Oil, Gas and Power Limited or FOGAP, has been our legal entity name for many years, but as our business has developed over the past couple of years, diversifying into new market sectors, our shareholders and our board have now agreed that this should be altered to reflect the changes in our business.

ENGIE Fabricom is the name we all recognise.  It is the name our clients and suppliers know us by too, therefore from today, this will also become our official Company name.

The move further strengthens our Company strategy of delivering end to end solutions to our clients and that is the main reason why we will now be called ENGIE Fabricom UK Limited.

As we already use the ENGIE Fabricom brand and logo on our website and signage around our buildings, these will not change.  Our Company registration number will not change.

We are proud of what we do and our constant innovation and development and this change of name gives us the opportunity to continue to do what we do best, which is applying our skills and expertise to enable us to become our clients’ partner of choice.

In short, our name is now a permanent fixture but our work will never stop evolving.

ENGIE Fabricom answers The Big Question on reducing our environmental impact

By | Corporate News, News, renewables | No Comments

Strategic Development Director, Andrew Mitchell, was recently approached by Energy Focus to discuss how energy companies are adapting to a lower carbon world.  His viewpoint below was featured as part of The Big Question in the summer edition of the publication.

‘Global warming and climate change have left us with no alternative but to rethink the energy landscape.  The urgent need to reduce environmental impact means implementing a more decarbonised, decentralised and energy-efficient system to support the global demand.

In response to this demand for change, ENGIE is accelerating its own transformation to lead the energy transition.  The group is focusing efforts on energy efficiency, renewables, digital technology and new business which, for UK subsidiary ENGIE Fabricom, is providing an opportunity for growth.

ENGIE Fabricom is supporting its clients in operating and maintaining their offshore wind assets, providing end-to-end solutions in the energy-from-waste sector, and assisting in decommissioning clients’ existing oil and gas assets.

ENGIE Fabricom’s strategy is to deliver end-to-end solutions to our clients, and the changing environment we live in today is providing the perfect platform to achieve this goal.’
