News Spotlight A landmark year for renewables

Climate change are two words on everyone’s lips right now, thanks to a number of recent headlines. 2017 was the second hottest year since records began. Cape Town faces ‘Day Zero’ in June, when water taps must finally be turned off. We’re all reeling from the hard truths of ‘Blue Planet II’, where we learned (amongst other shockers) that the glitter we loved as kids wreaks havoc with the environment. Even Her Majesty the Queen – after a quiet chat with Sir David – has banned single-use plastics

Our Projects

Combined, we have over 50 years experience, gained on a variety of projects throughout the world. But no two engineering projects are alike.

Sometimes we manage a project from the very start and continue to be involved until the end reports. Other times we are brought in to provide specialist services in specific areas. Each brings different challenges. Each has different outcomes.

We would like to share just a few of these projects here.

Land & Marine / National Grid - St. Fergus Reductions Project, Safe Working Methodologies (612) Technical Writing

Land and Marine, National Grid

Peterhead, Scotland
5 May 2011 - Ongoing

QEM Solutions were asked by Land & Marine, and the National Grid St. Fergus Emissions Reductions Project, to develop and implement a process that would enable a structured and efficient way for producing Safe Working Methodologies during a high priority construction and commissioning programme.

Using decades of experience and an understanding of the hurdles that sometimes have to be overcome on tight construction deadlines, QEM Solutions arrived onsite within a 72 hour period to provide immediate assistance.

The task in hand proved to be extremely complex due to the high volume of RAMS (Risk Assessments, Method Statements) and the fact that every activity had to be zone specific (with 12 zones in total throughout the construction site).  In addition to this two separate permitry systems had to work side by side ensuring that all methodologies were suitable for the works required.

Within 6 weeks, QEM Solutions had cleared a back-log of methodologies ensuring construction activities could take place as programmed and continued to develop safe working methodologies for both construction and commissioning.

Main Responsibilities included;

  • Initial Gap Analysis
  • Management of submission and approval process
  • Identification of high risk areas with respect to construction milestone dates
  • Development and Implementation of processes identifying and reporting on required methodologies
  • Writing and managing the approval of Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS)

Benefits included:

  • Solutions to a major problems, addressed and provided.
  • Engineering & Construction team were confident that all documents would be ready for construction dates.
  • Competent and experienced personnel  picking up the tasks without the need for instruction or guidance.
  • Minimised delays to construction
  • Establishment of safe working processes.
