Ferguson Offshore DNV 2.7-1 4000 Litre Tote Tanks Available out of South East Asia

Ferguson , a leading supplier of offshore DNV 2.7-1 / EN12079 certified containers, tanks, refrigeration modules, accommodation and workspace modules, supplies DNV 2.7-1 offshore tote tanks from their South East Asian bases in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The 4000 litre tank is used to store and transport most chemicals used in oil and gas production as its construction makes it more able to withstand the rigours of offshore work and has a lower transport cost per litre than an IBC. The tanks are part of Ferguson’s offshore DNV 2.7-1 chemical tank range, introduced in response to client demand.

IBCs are durable and light, but they are susceptible to damage and possible leakage during shipment and can burn rapidly in fire conditions.  The DNV 2.7-1 offshore tank can withstand both fire and substantial impacts due to its design and its 316 stainless steel construction weathers well in the tropical climate of the region.

Quayside, on and offloading drums of chemicals involves a significant amount of handling and once used, the drums are difficult to clean, re-use or even dispose of.  The larger capacity of the tank means that there are fewer lifts.

Simon de Koning, General Manager, Singapore welcomed the tanks.

“The tote tanks are a very cost efficient way to move cargo.  When a 1000 litre IBC is lifted as loose cargo, it takes four lifts to get 4000 litres of product on board the vessel, and thereafter onto the offshore installation, while it only takes one lift when using the 4000 litre tank. Additionally, the 4000 litre tank has a lesser footprint than four IBCs.”

Each lift increases the risk to the vessel, the cargo and the handlers, therefore a reduction in the amount of lifts means a reduction in risk.

If small volumes of product require to be transported in IBCs, the IBCs can be shipped in specially designed IBC carriers or mini containers that are designed to carry two IBCs. The Ferguson IBC mini container comes with internal tie down points and a cargo net.

When handling materials offshore, it is essential to reduce the risk to the cargo, the environment and the handlers.  Ferguson believes that their new 4000 litre tote tanks will be a key part of this process.

Panalpina and JDA help customers increase asset velocity


Three years ago, Panalpina announced its intention to deploy a single warehouse management system (WMS) across all of its logistics facilities throughout the world. The roll-out of the RedPrairie – now JDA – WMS is progressing ahead of schedule thanks to Panalpina’s experts in all regions and a specially developed and unique fast deployment model. To date, JDA WMS has been rolled out at more than 30 Panalpina sites globally – enabling Panalpina to optimize service levels and inventory for customers.

The WMS roll-out builds upon Panalpina’s logistics strategy to become the first 3PL (third-party logistics provider) to improve inventory management by helping customers increase asset velocity – moving products more quickly and reducing warehoused stock.

JDA WMS provides for various scan-and-validate check points throughout the warehousing process, allowing Panalpina to offer its customers a highly customizable solution. Panalpina also uses the system to track and compare the performance of its four-wall operations globally and then works towards benchmarks, for example in terms of very high inventory accuracy. JDA WMS has so far been deployed in 33 sites worldwide.

“The fast roll-out of the JDA warehouse management system worldwide is another way that Panalpina demonstrates its strategic commitment to growing in the logistics arena,” says Mike Wilson, global head of Logistics at Panalpina. “We have developed an unmatched level of in-house expertise, which we will use for the benefit of our customers to further accelerate the roll-out at our remaining logistics facilities.”

Panalpina developed its own rapid deployment model for JDA WMS in order to offer customers a standardized approach and consistent implementation process across the globe. This unique model is particularly useful to international customers whose products have short life cycles, as the deployment of the system takes place quickly and cost effectively.

Data from JDA WMS is used for advanced inventory forecasting

JDA WMS also includes a feature-rich reporting and analytics module, which can be integrated into Panalpina’s data analytics services for more accurate customer inventory and demand forecasting. Panalpina uses customer data extracted from JDA WMS to map inventories across product life cycles. Using sophisticated proprietary algorithms, Panalpina then calculates at what stage the inventory changes in order to better estimate minimum and maximum inventory holding, where to position inventory and what services to offer. Customers benefit by having a partner that can keep their products moving and minimize working capital requirements in their supply chains. Panalpina calls this approach Demand-Driven Inventory Dispositioning (D2ID).

While JDA WMS can be deployed for all industries, Panalpina has so far implemented the program mainly for its fashion and technology customers, which rely on a fast time to market. These customers benefit from the high levels of configuration available in JDA, and from specific features including multi-channel dispositioning, rapid returns processing and cross-docking.

Panalpina most recently deployed JDA WMS for a new high-end fashion customer in Italy. Panalpina’s Mendrisio fashion hub in southern Switzerland uses JDA WMS to provide the customer with inventory management and distribution services around the world. The fashion house’s merchandise is produced in northern Italy and then imported to Mendrisio, where Panalpina’s bonded warehouse can facilitate distribution within Switzerland or re-export it to Europe and other key markets.

Panalpina also offers a full returns logistics program at Mendrisio, accepting returned goods back into the facility and determining their quality, in order to return them quickly to stock in boutiques or outlet stores and maximize sales.

“JDA and our unique rapid deployment model have allowed us to offer our customers agility, speed and the flexibility to meet their needs across regions and industries. We efficiently track and manage their inventories and move their products as needed,” says Mario Leuverink, Global Head of Logistics Systems at Panalpina.

Rubb UK to refurbish and regenerate facilities for Ministry of Defence


UK’s Ministry of Defence has been working together closely with the innovative fabric buildings specialist, Rubb for over 35 years. Rubb has recently showcased benefits of the company’s Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System (EFASS) including post-use storage and refurbishment.

Rubb began work on the construction of six military warehouses for Operation Herrick in Afghanistan during 2010. These impressive structures measured 100m by 25m each.

Military storage warehouses were supplied to the Output Section of the Expeditionary Campaign Infrastructure (ECI) project team – responsible for successfully establishing equipment infrastructure in Helmand Province.

These structures will be returned to Rubb throughout 2015/2016 with the first two shelters to be converted, at the Gateshead Rubb plant, into five new aircraft hangars following inspection, necessary repairs and cleaning.

Rubb Sales Manager, Andy Knox, commented on the refurbishment of these hangars in Gateshead saying: “We will then add the components needed to turn these buildings into two shorter hangars measuring 25m x 40m, each featuring one Heli-Door and one closed gable end”.

With numerous military shelters deployed around the world many are scheduled to be returned to UK. The modular nature of fabric structure buildings means that their aluminium framing system, steel components and PVC covers can be reused to modify their nature as required.

Rubb Managing Director Ian Hindmoor said: “We are always looking for ways to add value to the products and services we provide. This process is an excellent example of the varied way we can service our client base.”

New EU Directive Safety Case Compliance with Marex support

New EU Directive Safety Case Compliance with Marex support

Computational  Fluid Dynamics


Incidents, in particular the Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010, have raised public awareness of the risks involved in offshore oil and gas operations and have prompted a review of policies aimed at ensuring the safety of such operations. The Macondo incident highlighted the offshore oil and gas industry’s lack of universal mandatory safety procedures. In particular, it suggested a fragmented regulatory structure and lack of any overarching, cohesive legislative framework. The European Commission (EC) concluded that the existing divergent and fragmented regulatory framework applying to the safety of offshore oil and gas operations in Europe, along with current industry safety practices, did not provide adequate assurance that risks from offshore accidents were minimised throughout the Union. The EU, therefore, adopted the Offshore Safety Directive on 10 June 2013.

The implementation of the EU directive means that organisations will have to revise their safety cases over the next few years to allow them to comply with the updated regulations, which have more environmentally focussed considerations. As far as the UK is concerned, the majority of the Offshore Safety Directive’s requirements have been transposed into national law by the Offshore Installations (Offshore Safety Directive) (Safety Case etc) Regulations 2015. The new regulations came into force on the 19th of July, 2015 and are set up to reduce, as far as possible, the occurrence of major accidents relating to offshore oil and gas operations and to limit their consequences.

The new directive changes the way the regulators are set up to allow for a more unified level of response throughout the European Union. The directive also required the creation of an offshore competent authority. DECC and HSE, working in partnership, have now established the Offshore Safety Directive Regulator (OSDR). HSE and DECC’s legislation has been updated to fully implement the directive. This includes changes to existing legislation, as well as introducing new requirements.

The main changes between the new regulations and the existing UK offshore safety and environmental regime include:

  • The creation of an independent offshore competent authority
  • Integrating the management of safety and environmental risks, which impacts on the safety case, well notification, independent verification scheme and well examination requirements
  • Introduction of independent verification for environmental critical elements
  • Requirements for the production of a corporate major accident prevention policy
  • Specific requirements for oil pollution emergency plans
  • New requirements on liability for environmental damage
  • Duties on operators to report a range of new incidents and dangerous occurrences to the competent authority
  • Requirements on the competent authority to report a range of information, including the findings of their major accident investigations, to the EC
  • Duties on operators registered in the Member States to report major accidents that occur outside of Europe
  • Transitional arrangements covering existing installations and wells

In so far as the safety regime is concerned, a transitional period has been granted for existing installations, allowing parties involved with ongoing operations until 19 July 2018 to comply with the new regulations. Otherwise, the regulations will apply from 19 July 2016.

Preparation of safety cases to comply with the regulations requires great amounts of planning and preparation. Many of the major drilling contractors in the UKCS prefer to utilise the services of specialist risk consultancy companies, such as Marex Marine and Risk Consultancy, for the compilation of the safety cases and to facilitate the risk studies required. Risk studies can be categorised into qualitative and quantitative.

BowtieXP is one such program utilised in providing qualitative risk assessments. The software allows highly skilled employees to thoroughly analyse, with input from the client’s workforce, all potential hazards that could impact offshore assets. The software allows the tailoring of barriers to the possible threats that could initiate an event and the measures in place to prevent an event from escalating into a disaster. Through this, operators can ensure that concerns on safety aboard their offshore fleets are adequately addressed, while simultaneously providing a point of reference for the workforce. The software allows for several levels of information to be provided with each barrier, from those responsible for the actions described by a barrier, to lists of safety critical equipment associated with a prevention mechanism. Identification of Safety and Environmental Critical Elements (SECEs) can be one of the outcomes from this process, which is referred to as Major Accident Hazard Risk Assessment (MAHRA). The duty holder is responsible to create performance standards for the SECEs and develop a Written Scheme of Verification for the installation or the well. An independent verification body should be appointed by the duty holder to carry out the verification process to ensure that the SECEs are fit for purpose and continue to be so throughout the life of the installation.

Bowtie snapshot

Some cases might require an in-depth quantitative analysis of the impacts of fires, gas releases or explosions using complex modelling software. These programs operate on the principles of fluid mechanics to compute the fluid dynamics of the spread of gases, explosion overpressures and radiant energy released by fires. The software used includes PHAST and Kameleon FireEx (KFX), depending on the level of detail required by the duty holder. The results of these analyses are used in safety cases, and can also be used in producing risk analyses, either as supporting material or as standalone documents.

In some instances, availability studies, Failure Mode and Effects Analyses (FMEAs) and its extension, Failure Mode and Criticality Effects Analyses (FMECAs) would also be required. These assessments statistically analyse vital equipment offshore, such as the fire detection systems, to ensure that no one risk factor will dominate the equation or disrupt critical systems during an emergency.

The professional expertise of risk specialist companies can be utilised beyond the confines of the office and conference rooms. Carrying out compartment studies, human factors assessments and PUWER assessments on board vessels and installations are all essential parts of compliance with the regulatory structure surrounding offshore operations in the North Sea.

Due to the pace that the industry moves, it can be easy to overlook potential events that have an extremely low level of probability but potentially high consequences. A company that has not had a major incident for an extended period of time is no more or less at risk of a major incident, hence preparation is the key.  Since its inception nearly 20 years ago, Marex has completed over 200 safety cases (new submissions, thorough reviews and material changes) for major drilling contractors in the industry. Marex’s highly skilled team members are already assisting companies with the revision of safety case changes that have to be made, courtesy of the new EU directive. Ian McDougall, MD, said, ‘In doing this, Marex are providing a system of documentation to their client that will enable informed decisions to be made concerning all aspects of worker and workplace risk and safety and assist in identifying, minimizing and eliminating risk to their employees, their assets and the environment.’ For more information, please visit the website or contact Marex directly.

Heskins Thick Safety Grip Now Available


Heskins are proud to announce that H3404 2mm safety grip is now available for order. Thick Safety Grip™ now allows business to kit out their factories to ensure effective slip prevention, that also provide slight cushioning and reduce leg fatigue on a production line. It can also be applied into recesses that are considered trip hazards.

Heskins made the decision to produce thick Safety Grip™ after the demand became great. The reason Heskins had to ensure the demand was there, was simply due to the commitment that would have to be made to produce it. Many of our production and post production machines were modified to produce thick Safety Grip™ to the same quality standards as all the other Heskins products.

Investment was also made into a new range of high-volume crush cut blade holders. The reason this was necessary was due to the thickness. Heskins anti slip tapes are generally no thicker than 1.4mm. While the difference of .6mm doesn’t seem great, the adhesive applied to the base increases this thickness further, making it more difficult to cut.

Now the modifications are in place, Heskins have added a versatile new anti slip product into the range, and like all others, can be slit in rolls ranging from 20mm up to 1170mm, all 18.3m in length.

Heskins H3404 thick Safety Grip™ is available at a very competitive price, and if you would like to place an order, or enquire further, you can contact Heskins by phone or email.

Floor Demarcation and Colour Referencing in the Workplace

Floor Demarcation and Colour Referencing in the Workplace

When it comes to 5S and floor demarcation in the workplace, there are many guidelines, of which many provide very little insight.

A quote often used is ““In lean manufacturing, the general rule of thumb is that anyone should be able to walk into a workplace and identify the flow of work being done within 60 seconds.”

Keeping this quote in mind, for someone venturing into this for the first time, finding the right information before implementation is a tough task. Many options are available for floor marking and signage products to allow you to begin optimisation of floor demarcation, which in the first instance will be a tough task without the correct information to hand.

Depending on the function of your workplace will naturally determine how you proceed, do you want to optimise what is currently working? Or do you want to start from scratch to improve the whole process? We believe that Heskins can help you provide a strong starting point by defining the regulated and approved colours to identify and optimise key workflow areas in your business.

Heskins products are always manufactured in regulation colours, from anti slip tape, to floor marking systems, Heskins products can be used to create a full, optimised workflow demarcation system. heskins-ltd-colour-guidelines

Workplace 5s Walkway

Workplace 5s Walkway

5S colours are as follows:

Yellow – Highlights an area that is to be treated with caution. Mainly used for aisleways and walkways, more often than not because these areas could cross with other working processes, such as forklift traffic or other foot traffic.

Red – Highlights danger or can relate to fire. Red alerts people or vehicles that they need to stop before proceeding, or to notify people where fire fighting equipment is available, if it of course can.

Blue – Marks out information, or can be used to hold equipment or machinery that is out of order.

Green – Notifies an area of safety, whether that be a first aid point or notice, or a walkway that is out of the way of potential dangers.

Orange – Used to mark out zones where vehicles are stored or for areas where vehicles operate. Combining yellow and red with this creates a traffic system that is safe and organised.

Black/Yellow – Notifies of potential hazards and to proceed with caution. Areas that store potentially harmful chemicals or areas that can only be entered with additional safety measures.

Red/White – Notification to keep an area clear at all times. Emergency access or electrical points are two such areas that benefit from these markings.

White – Indication of an area where production or work processes are ongoing.

Black – Completed jobs are put in these areas, indicating the job is complete.

For a full colour reference guide for Heskins products and general 5S colour references, you can download the colour reference guide heskins-ltd-colour-guidelines. The Heskins colour guide refers to regulations for all of Europe.

Heskins offer other colours, as well as custom production, so dependent on order quantities, you can get the perfect anti slip or floor marking solution for your workplace. Get in touch
