PROJECT: Greater Tortue Ahmeyim Quarters and Utilities Platform, bp
ENTERED BY: Alex Ryder, bp

GTA Quarters and Utilities Platform was designed and built by Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore, the first time bp had awarded an Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning contract directly to a Chinese contractor for an offshore facility. We used our project as the demonstrator for new ways of working to elevate safety standards on site. Collaborating around a principle of care for one another, the project team nurtured a safety culture that evolved from initially pathological, to truly generative, one that delivered the project without any lost time incident, an exceptional achievement for this scale of project in a Chinese shipyard.
