Receiving a shortlisting for the EIC Award for Supply Chain Excellence, TRAC has displayed a commitment to innovation and supply chain performance
TRAC has been shortlisted by an independent judging panel of industry experts for the prestigious EIC Award for Supply Chain Excellence, entries were said to be of an exceptionally high standard, with the awards ceremony to be held in the national museum of Natural History in London. The shortlisting emphasises TRACs excellent capabilities providing superior supply chain service performance, with a relentless focus on delivery, utilising the innovative technology of mini-Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs).
Recent investment in a fleet of mini-ROVs represents innovative use of innovative technology. This allowed TRAC to achieve an industry first when a workscope to gain a full vessel class certification (including use of ultrasonic thickness measurement gauge) was engineered by TRACs qualified Project Managers and carried out on an FPSO by ROV Pilots and NDT inspectors. Detailed defect reports could then be produced, complete with a visual record to assist in continuous monitoring.
Mini-ROVs offer a safe, efficient, flexible and versatile means of visual inspection for a variety of workscopes including water ballast tanks, shell plating checks and mooring chain checks, reducing risk and providing a cost effective solution. There are also applications in the inshore industries and aquaculture.
TRAC Oil & Gas Operations Director, Gordon Cook, commented
“We are very pleased to be shortlisted for this award, TRAC is currently celebrating its 15th Anniversary year and this latest innovation contributes to the company’s continued success. We would like to thank our staff who were involved in the nomination process and those who engineer and carry out the workscopes. I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the other companies shortlisted and wish them the best in the next stage of judging.”
