Lucion has worked in partnership with one of the world’s major oil companies to overcome some critical challenges around the management of asbestos in a fleet of ageing tankers.
Since 2014, Lucion has been working, primarily in the EU, with the customer’s team, providing inspection, testing, abatement specification, consultancy and analytical testing solutions to support the identification and removal of hazardous materials onboard several LNG tanker vessels.
Ensuring that best practice was followed in line with UK, European and international legislation during the removal of hazardous materials, which included work carried out by asbestos removal contractors, was of paramount importance in the work undertaken by Lucion.
Several challenges were faced on the contract, in particular daily liaison and management of the Spanish asbestos removal contractor. This involved close cooperation to ensure best practice techniques were fully observed in line with compliance requirements. The work was closely scrutinised by the customer’s senior management, who visited the project to check on progress.
A spokesperson for the oil company said: “We found Lucion to be very professional and their work to the highest standards. Overall, the project went well, was efficiently managed by a highly competent team, delivered on time and to standard.”
