The Dalby Swale has successfully completed a grout inspection project on Greater Gabbard in conjunction with 3Sun working for SSE.
The Dalby Swale completed the project within 78 working days which meant the project was completed earlier than scheduled.
Both 3Sun and SSE were more than happy with the way the vessel and crew performed and that the vessel completed the work with no real H&S issues.
In addition to this SSE awarded Dalby with a project polo t shirt complete with their logo and Dalby's logo which we decided to award to a worthy member of the Dalby Swale Crew. The whole of the Dalby Swale crew must be complimented on the success of the project but it was felt that Gary Hughes who was the Master for the majorirty of the project deserved to be the receipient for particularly raising a couple of excellent safety observation cards, for co-ordinating the crew in a structured manner and for been always been consistent and more than trusted to do a good job.
On receiving the award Gary said that "he was pleased the project went well and that everyone was happy with the vessel's performance. He also said the 3Sun technicians made the project enjoyable."
Nigel Shaw, Dalby Offshore's HSEQ Manager said " It is good that we are able to reward one of our crew for positive safety performance. Gary leads from the top and has completed many days as our vessel Master on this project. However Gary is part of a team and knowing Gary as I do he would be the first to say that it was a good all round team effort that has led to this recognition. Overall the whole project team deserves credit for their hard work and proactive approach to safety, working closely with the 3Sun technicians to ensure that the project was able to complete on time with no one getting hurt. There have been long days in the field to get through this campaign, with everyone playing their part with safety at the fore front of their minds. Well done to all."
Dalby look forward to working further with 3Sun on other projects. The Dalby Swale is now going onto a contract for VBMS working out of Shoreham.
