One million man hours without LTIs

27 July 2017

A.Hak is working on the construction of a pipeline for Saudi Aramco in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This week the million man hour mark was reached without a single LTI (lost time incident).

In an order granted by customer Saudi Aramco, A.Hak is working to install a 48” pipeline for the transportation of sea water to an oil field across 75 kilometres. The sea water is injected into the Khurais oil field to increase oil extraction efficiency.

Saudi Aramco and A.Hak implemented and enforced stringent safety regulations. The results are very satisfactory, as this week the million man hour mark was reached without a single. The excellent results attained in this project make us a strong contender for follow-up work.

After a successful work completion of the engineering department, the actual construction in the field begun. Currently, approximately 60% of this route is completed, while every team progresses approximately 550 meters each day to meet the project deadline in late 2017.

In an e-mail to the A.Hak staff in Saudi-Arabia, A.Hak CEO Iain Light congratulates our people on this achievement. “The one million incident free man hours is a real milestone and testament to your hard work and efforts to promote safety in the project. Making sure everyone returns home or to the compound every night free of harm, is something we seek in all the activities in A.Hak. Please extend my vote of thanks and the admiration of the Executive Board to the whole team for their contribution in achieving this memorable milestone.”
