Unique Tile Services, a joint venture between Tile Marine and Unique System FZE, which is one of the world's leading integrated turnkey subsea and offshore solution providers, announced today the commissioning and training phase of a Sludge & Slops Project in Oman.
Breaking ground in 2011, this marks the final stage of completion of Unique's first turnkey project for the Oman Government. The facility is situated in Duqm Dry Docks, Oman's first ship repair facility. Using waste treatment plants designed by Nature Environmental Solutions Limited, the facility uses the latest in environmental technology to biologically process oily tank washings taken from tankers undergoing maintenance at the dockyard complex.
Ian Huggins, General Manager at Unique System FZE commented "Unique's project management skills were tested during this demanding project as the facility lies some 500km from the nearest port and city. The logistics of designing and constructing this remote project presented constant challenges for the engineers and managers based in the UK, Norway, Gibraltar, UAE and Muscat. I am very proud of my team who not only faced these challenges but also overcame them with success."
The facility can receive up to 10,000 cubic metres of slops and has already begun receiving consignments of slops cargo as the training team assists the Oman Drydock Company open for business.
