The Netherlands: Van Oord Wins Prize for Safe Working Conditions

 

On 4 March 2011, Essar Bulk Terminal in Hazira, India, part of the globally operating Essar Group, awarded Van Oord a prize for best performance as regards safe working conditions in 2010. The prize is part of the annual National Safety Day Celebration.

Van Oord is currently executing the deepening of the access channel and berth for large bulk carriers that deliver raw materials for the Essar plant in Hazira. The significant expansion of the harbour has made it one of the most important deep-sea harbours in the state of Gujarat, a major industrial centre located in northwest India.

‘This prize is an important means of recognising our on-site people, who have worked closely together to achieve even safer working conditions’, responded area manager Martin Meijers. Works Manager Hendrik-Jan Ridder accepted the prize on Van Oord’s behalf.
