Mackley Piling Team Wins Award

The Mackley piling team, working as part of Van Oord on a project in the Middle-East, has received a safety award.

The team was in Kuwait working on a project at the Al Zour Oil Refinery, south of the capital Kuwait City.

Each month Van Oord presents a safety award to one of the teams working on the Al Zour project, and in January 2017 the award went to the Mackley piling team.

Luc Flier, Van Oord project manager for the Al Zour scheme, said that the award was in recognition of the team’s contribution towards creating a ‘very safe construction site’.

David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development and Marketing Manager, said: “We always aim to achieve first class performance in quality, health, safety and environment by reducing and managing risks, eliminating potential injuries, preventing work related ill-health and minimizing the effect of our activities on the environment.”

This is the second project Mackley has carried out on the Al Zour Refinery working as part of Van Oord. In June/July 2016, a Mackley team helped create a new barge dock to provide a heavy loading berth for the construction of the new refinery.
