STS Wins OXY “Innovations For Safety” Award

STS has won the OXY "Innovations For Safety" Award on the implementation of GRP Formwork used to prepare temporary mould for concrete construction works.

STS introduced "Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) formwork" for similar concrete elements which are more in number/quantity to minimize the use of timber formwork. GRP Formworkis fabricated as per the technical drawing and transported to the work location where they are screwed together to assemble the formwork for pouring concrete./p>

The implementation of GRP Formwork saved the installation time which contributed in improving the efficiency, productivity of the crew. The use of GRP Formwork completely avoided the regular nailing/de-nailing activity and also reduces the requirement of supporting structures, carpentry works.

This new innovation technique was appreciated by Oxy Oman operations and advised to implement across other projects under Oxy Oman operations.
