The West Indies Oil Company has announced another major milestone in improving operational efficiency and service excellence. The newly-installed six-point Conventional Buoy Mooring System (CBM) north of the Sea Island Jetty was completed in March 2019. It introduces best-in-class modalities, by allowing for the transfer of products between tankers and WIOC’s shore facility. Critically, it allows for the simultaneous loading and off-loading of products. This brings enhanced efficiency and allows the company to further improve the delivery of various services to its customers.
Commenting on the new development, CEO Gregory Georges says, “This new installation will facilitate multiple vessel operations, improved operation times and faster turnaround of customer vessels and represents a remarkable upgrade to the company’s sea-side infrastructure.”
Even more improvements are being mulled, as the company keeps in step with international best practices.
