Wood Group PSN has secured a contract extension from Caltex to deliver integrated maintenance services at its two Australian refineries – Lytton in Brisbane and Kurnell in Sydney.
Effective from June 2013, the $45 million, 18 month contract marks the continuation of a three year contract first awarded to WGPSN in 2010.
Providing maintenance management, mechanical and support services to the Caltex refineries, WGPSN employs more than 200 people at both sites.
Matt Gavin, WGPSN managing director for Australia & Asia Pacific said, “We have been able to deliver tangible maintenance performance improvements across both refineries since this contract was awarded and this extension is testament to Caltex’s confidence in WGPSN. It also further cements our credentials as a leading industrial maintenance service provider in Australia.
“Our key successes on this contract include a marked reduction in the backlog of maintenance work, significant improvement in maintenance compliance, and a pleasing increase in scheduled work delivery. This has translated to improved reliability and performance at both sites and will hopefully help Caltex achieve its goal of becoming a top quartile performer for maintenance and reliability when compared to other refineries in the Asia Pacific region.
“Promoting a strong safety culture at both Lytton and Kurnell has also been a priority.”
Gary Smith, general manager of refining and supply at Caltex, said, “Wood Group PSN has worked closely with Caltex to help deliver measurable improvements in reliability and has been an important partner in driving improved safety outcomes at both locations”.
