Remontowa is progressively continuing large conversion and upgrade project of the floating production semi-submersible platform FPF-1, operated by Petrofac - the 12fth offshore platform being converted at our yard.

The 82 m long, 75 m wide and some 30 m high platform, with a displacement of 26 639 tons and lightweight of some 14 000 tons, is a significant task for Remontowa SA, which  has been entrusted by the Owner with the modification and modernization of the unit.

The FPF1 project has reached its final stage. As of April 15 the construction and assembly phase of the project was about to end followed by delivery - acceptance tests, electrical connections, pipelines start-up etc. 

Building the floating production unit FPF-1, basing on an upgraded semi-submersible platform, the Remontowa’s employees and subcontractors have already been working without accident for over 800 days, which translates into more than four million manhours without an incident.

Our efforts for maintaining a high level of health, safety and culture of work have been recognized and appreciated within the industry. Petrofac and Remontowa have been nominated to the UK Oil and Gas Industry Safety Awards, jointly organised by Oil & Gas UK and Step Change in Safety, with Maersk Oil as principal sponsor.



There were over 100 nominations to this prestigious industry award. Selection of the finalists in six categories (Safety Leadership,  Safety Representative of the Year, Innovation in Safe, Workforce Engagement, Occupational Health & Hygiene, Sharing and Learning) was undertaken by previous winners, elected safety representatives and senior leaders from across industry.

Robert Paterson, health and safety director with Oil & Gas UK, said: “We received some fantastic nominations for our awards which celebrate the outstanding efforts of workers and companies in ensuring the best safety practice in the workplace,” he said. “Even during these difficult times for the industry, safety remains at the forefront of operations and our awards help demonstrate that.”

Les Linklater, executive director, Step Change in Safety, added: “It is only right that we continue to celebrate the efforts made by committed individuals and organisations who are seeking to maintain and improve the safety of the North Sea, despite the challenges the industry is facing.  To be nominated by your peers for playing your part is recognition in itself, and every finalist should be proud of reaching this next stage.”

Petrofac and Remontowa have been pre-selected in the Workforce Engagement category. The winners will be announced at the award ceremony taking place on 29th of April 2015 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
