Leading oil & gas engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and maintenance services value chain provider, Rotary Engineering announced that it will be undertaking a two-pronged approach – mechanisation and talent-development, to drive productivity and regionalisation under unpredictable market conditions and a tight labour market.
Rotary Engineering establishes Productivity Centre of Excellence for Process Construction and Maintenance sector
As a key member of the industry-led Process Construction and Maintenance (PCM) Productivity Council, which was established in 2015, Rotary will be ramping up its mechanisation efforts through the establishment of a 10-man PCM Productivity CoE in Singapore. This centre will work closely with both the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and SPRING Singapore to develop and implement five initiatives over the next three years, to improve productivity and better serve their clients in the energy and chemicals sector. Some of the productivity initiatives which Rotary will be undertaking include the introduction of new or upgrade of its existing automation equipment in its fabrication yards.
To better train and upgrade its employees, Rotary will be expanding its Regional CoE for Process Plant Maintenance (PPM), which develops the company’s best practices for PCM work processes and curriculum for technical and safety training courses.
Ms Fong Pin Fen, Director, Cities, Infrastructure & Industrial Solutions, EDB said, “We are pleased that Rotary is developing new productivity competencies and talent development pathways, that will place the company in a better position to regionalise and take on larger and more complex projects that are multi-disciplinary in nature. This is aligned with our national effort to strengthen the capabilities of our PCM industry and enhance the overall competitiveness of the energy and chemicals sector in Singapore.”
