Tank training initiative supports safety culture for Hinkley Point C development
Stevie Skinner, Technical Manager at OEG Offshore UK delivers tank safety and familiarisation training to lead contractors on the Hinkley Point C development.

The training initiative, which was tailored specifically to meet the needs of yard operators and vessel crew, focused on correctly using 20,000 litre portable tanks, for the safe transportation of fuel products and marine gas oil around the site.

The training was held at Avonmouth Docks, Bristol, allowing participants to gain hands-on experience using one of OEG’s offshore certified multi-cargo tanks. The program was delivered by OEG’s Technical Manager, Stevie Skinner who covered a range of topics including tank operation, maintenance, safety protocols, and emergency procedures.

Clive Hoskisson, Managing Director of OEG Offshore UK commented, "OEG is committed to not only providing the highest level of training but also contributing to the broader safety culture in the energy industry. Our experienced trainers ensure that all personnel working on projects are fully familiarised with the correct usage and safety procedures of portable tanks."

This initiative underscores OEG’s ongoing commitment to support projects delivering low-carbon electricity with top-tier safety training, helping to safeguard the workforce and the communities surrounding such large-scale projects.

The training is part of a wider work scope including the rental of offshore containers, safe area workspace cabins, chemical tanks, refrigerated containers, and portable welfare units along with guard vessel charter and subsea services provided by other OEG group companies.
