DMC: Early finish of Package No. 5 - the third overall maintenance project of Dung Quat Refinery
According to the plan, the package No. 5 of the third overall maintenance project of Dung Quat Refinery will be completed on July 18th, 2017. However, on July 13th 2017, Drilling Muds Cooperation - the contractor of this package officially completed it and handed it over to Binh Son Petrochemical Company. As such, Package 5 was finished five days early and DMC became the contractor with the most early completion time.
Safety is the next factor considered as a great success in this project. Ensuring labor safety on the site is always an important requirement set by the contractor. For package No. 5, 80% of workload must be done in confined space which was lack of air and light, evenin some areas, the environment contained a large amount of hydrocarbon; therefore, workingprocedure and occupational safety weretop priorities. Right at the beginning of implementation period, DMC held a ceremony to launch labor safety. Mr.Ton Anh Thi, General Director of DMC asked all experts, engineers, workers who were in charge of over all maintenance to ensure safe ty for all staff members, equipment, materials, machines of both DMC and Dung Quat Refinery. Safety must be implemented by each individual. He gave a very practical slogan "You stand here today because you were safe yesterday." By the end of the project, DMC had guaranteed 100% safety for both staffs and property.
The last but important factor contributing significantly to the success of the Corporation is the active support, strict supervision from Binh Son Refinery Company (BSR). From the very beginning, when selecting a contractor who participated in general maintenance as the general contractor for the package No. 5 for the firsttime, BSR greatly facilitated, instructed in detail and shared experiences to the Corporation to help DMC quickly approachthe work. During the implementation of the work, BSR strictly supervised the implementation process; therefore, when the DMC Corporation encountered problems, BSR timely involved in supporting and directly coordinating with the contractor for solutions. This was also one of the great impressions showing the responsibility of BSR’s staffs as well as the spirit of cooperation with the contractor.
The success of Package 5 has helped DMC gain more experience to confidently participate in general and regular maintenance activities of refineries and power – fertilizer projects for petroleum industry and other ones.
