Quality

Lamprell has a dedicated Quality department headed by the Vice President of HSESQ and supported by Group Quality Manager, division/facility QA/QC Managers and their competent teams of Inspectors, Engineers and Coordinators in each facility. The department’s primary responsibilities include:

  • Continual development and improvement of our management system
  • Monitoring, measuring and auditing
  • Management of non-conformities
  • Quality Control Inspections

Quality CommitmentLamprell is certified to the ISO 9001:2015, ISO/TS 29001:2010 and API Q1 Ninth Edition Quality Management System standards and various American Petroleum Institute (API) product licenses and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards.

Lamprell’s Hamriyah, Sharjah & Jebel Ali facilities are certified to ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO/TS 29001:2010 standards. The ISO/TS 29001:2010 is specific to the oil, gas and petrochemicals industry.

Lamprell is also one of the few companies in the region to hold API certifications for oilfield equipment mechanical works including rotary equipment, crane repairs, derrick, mast and sub-structure repairs. The above structured approach leads to a consistently high level of quality which we believe is comparable to any energy company in the world.

Performance Improvements

Our Quality department experienced a busy 2016 with over 90 quality based audits completed both internally and externally for a selection of international vendors. Lamprell also successfully transitioned from the ISO 9001:2008 to the new ISO 9001:2015 certification standard. Having an ISO 9001:2015 certification standard improves Lamprell’s credibility and image because it is an internationally recognised standard that has become the worldwide basis for creating a quality management system. Lamprell is now certified to the latest international quality standard – a pre-requisite for many clients with which the company engages.

In addition, the company also completed third party training and certification by Bureau Veritas for internal audit management. The training qualified 41 internal auditors for the ISO 9001:2015 standard allowing them to carry out audits for the Group. Lamprell strives to exceed client expectations and throughout 2016 released a number of client satisfaction surveys. The results surpassed our agreed target with all our clients rating our project quality performance as ‘satisfied’ or better.

Another significant milestone reached in 2016 for the Group was the approval from Saudi Aramco for their 9COM quality standard. This achievement will enable Lamprell to be technically qualified to bid for future Saudi Aramco projects. Thanks to Compass, Lamprell’s new ERP system, the company is engaging with vendors to register themselves using a new online tool called “iSupplier”, which allows for web based processing of invoices. This has helped improve Lamprell’s organisational efficiency using updated IT systems. In addition, Lamprell’s IT department launched a sustainability tool in 2015 which enables all personnel across the organisation to monitor performance and it provides tips on how employees can reduce both the environmental footprint and operational costs for the company. Data provided on the dashboard includes CO2e emissions, waste recycling percentages, sustainability projects under review as well as Lamprell’s Sustainability Pillars.
