Local Procurement. The Falklands due to the micro size has few resources and support services. Byron through its expert knowledge of where to source goods and services from was able to keep the project on track, without having to utilise costly and time consuming off islands resources.
Stevedoring. Byron stevedores worked the project mobilisation vessels and discharged the cargoes which included: small craft, a multi-cat, the world’s largest componentised jack-up, very heavy lift crawler cranes, plant, containers, breakbulk materials and out of gauge piles.
Plant. Byron has an extensive amount of materials handling, transport and construction plant, all maintained and inspected to Falklands DVSA equivalent and is UK LOLER compliant.
Construction Operatives. As an international contractor, Volker Stevin, required experienced, multi-disciplined and UK certificated plant operatives and personnel. Byron’s personnel met this demanding requirement and have the additional advantages of being locally based and fully acclimatised to work in the testing Falklands weather conditions.
