OMAN TO DELIVER OFFSHORE PLATFORMS
AOG. Sohar-based L&T Modular Fabrication Yard (MFY) will deliver five large offshore oil platforms for the Umm Lulu and Nasr Oilfields in Abu Dhabi, managed by Adma Opco.
Scheduled to commence their journey early next week, the five offshore oil platforms produced at the Oman-based yard each weigh over 3,000 Metric Tonnes and will begin their journey next week from the water-front manufacturing complex.
Further highlighting the commitment to skills development in the community, L&T is one of the few companies in the region to have set up a training centre’ campus in Sohar. The Centre provides an induction programme for Omani youth in batches of 40 individuals and conducts ongoing technical training on specialised fabrication techniques, including the welding processes — SAW, SMA and FCA, thus equipping them with the skills and experience to work as qualified welders in the sector.
A significant proportion of the trainees gain full-time employment within the L&T operation, while the in-house training programme allows for non-specialised individuals to enrol for technical training and emerge with more employable skills.
