BAC Jet Fuel Company announces 1 million safe man-hours achievement at Fuel Farm Complex.

Manama, Feb. 20 (BNA): BAC Jet Fuel Company (BJFCO) held a celebration to mark the milestone achievement of reaching more than a million safe man-hours without lost time injuries at the upcoming Fuel Farm Complex. In recognition of the accomplishment, BJFCO Chairman, Engineer Abdul Majeed Al Qassab presented Amana Pipeline Construction Project Director, Maher Al Dik with a certificate of appreciation. Also in attendance were representatives from the project's subcontractor, Mesmak and consultant, Mott MacDonald.

The strategic project, which is an important component of the Airport Modernisation Programme, will reinforce Bahrain's position as a centre of aviation fuel services in the GCC region and contribute to the national economy in line with the Kingdom's Vision 2030. Housing three aviation fuel tanks with a capacity of 10,000 cubic meters each, the project covers 77,000 sqm, in addition to its dedicated operational buildings. As the number of airlines operating out of BIA continues to grow, it will play a vital role by providing additional aviation fuel to support the increased activity.

Remarking on the accomplishment, Mr Al Qassab said: "This achievement is a momentous milestone for Bahrain International Airport Fuel Farm Complex and reflects how the entire team has embraced our culture of operational excellence. Reaching one million safe man-hours is an international benchmark for safe work performance and demonstrates the effectiveness of our safety programme, especially considering the large-scale capacity and headcount ramp-up we experienced in the past year. This achievement would not have been possible without the hard work, commitment, and dedication of everyone involved in the project. Our people are our most important asset and their safety remains our top priority."

The Fuel Farm Complex is currently being developed in the north east area of BIA by BJFCO, a joint venture company between BAC and the Oil and Gas Holding Company (nogaholding). BJFCO was established with the goal of restructuring the aviation fuel sector in the Kingdom and will be responsible for the management and operation of the fuel farm, as per directives from Bahrain's leadership.
