Bapco starts major maintenance project
Manama, February 20, 2013
Bapco has started implementing a major maintenance project involving shutting down several of its units, top officials revealed.
They said the maintenance, which began on February 14, will go on for five weeks.
Officials said the exercise includes mobilisation of approximately 1,400 additional skilled contractor personnel, technical specialists and vendor personnel to assist Bapco with the overhaul of sophisticated machinery.
"Multi-unit shutdowns of this type are the norm in modern refinery operations as they enhance both efficiency and cost effectiveness," said a company spokesman.
"The preparations have taken Bapco teams almost six months and have now completed all necessary actions." – TradeArabia News Service
