We at the BSE Fiber & Cable Division, are very proud of our crews. The opportunities and accomplishments that have developed and materialized for our division this last year have been solid.
In particular recognition is our electrical rotation crews currently working at Exxon Mobil Point Thomson Central Pad, North Slope Alaska. This particular group of electricians, in a short period of time, has managed to maintain a level of workmanship, knowledge, abilities, participation, dedication and safety that has been noticed by many.
This unique job site is a 24/7 work environment, with a set of rules and protocol that is all based on accountability and redundant safety. These conditions are among the harshest known to man as can be seen by the accompanying photos from the work site. In temperatures reaching minus 40 degrees, in wind, and in ice/snow, our crews typically work 12 hour days, 7 days a week for 21 day periods. BSE was originally hired for the installation of two particular specific electrical tasks and because of their success, we found ourselves with additional workloads throughout the Pad and a service contract through 2014. Due to the extreme work environment, additional man-hours some days are required due to emergency repairs.
Our customer is extremely happy with BSE’s performance level, because their customer Exxon Mobil is extremely happy. They have recently made it a point to express these ‘kudos’ during the scheduled weekly phone conference, which includes Exxon Mobil’s main office in Texas. Way to go guys!
