Local charities benefit from SLP safety
– 19th October 2015
Sembmarine SLP Ltd (SLP) take safety seriously with a record of 1,566 days without a single day lost due to a safety incident.
To encourage employees to keep safety conscious SLP contribute to a charity fund as a reward for safe working by employees and subcontractors. SLP customers are also encouraged to contribute and current customers Siemens Transmission and Distribution Limited and Statoil, whose Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm substation platform is taking shape on SLP’s Hamilton Road site, have been supporting SLP to boost the fund.
Local charities were chosen to benefit from the fund and an awards ceremony took place at the Orbis Centre in Lowestoft on the 19th October. It was attended by members of SLP staff, workforce and representatives of Siemens and Statoil where cheques amounting to £10,500 were given to 7 local charities including:
Addison Field, a local 3 year old girl diagnosed with Hemiconvulsion-hemiplegic-epilepsy, Great Yarmouth Visually Impaired Persons Club, D.I.A.L. Lowestoft and Waveney, 4th Gorleston Brownies, Kieran Young, a local 33 year old with a brain injury needing to make adaptations to his home, TOPCATS (opportunities and activities for additional needs in the Suffolk area) and Red Balloon Learner Centres in Norwich, an organisation who support young people who are isolated at school because of bullying or other trauma.
Matthew Wooltorton, Project Manager, said: “Thanks to SLP’s Safety Observation Scheme and customers like Siemens and Statoil local charities are able to benefit from our culture of safety and will continue to do so as we go forward with other projects.”
The SLP Safety Observation Scheme (SOS) encourages all persons working at or visiting SLP to actively look out for unsafe acts or conditions and also positive actions and to take action to prevent accidents and incidents occurring.
This latest awards ceremony has brought SLP’s charitable donations to over £320,000

In September 2015 Sembmarine SLP was awarded the contract to carry out the construction of the Power Generation Module (PGM) and Bridge Links for the Maersk Oil Culzean project development in the North Sea.
The offshore facility has been designed, engineered, procured and constructed in Sembmarine SLP’s Lowestoft yard and includes suction bucket technology, a first for an offshore substation in UK waters. Part of Statoil’s £1.5 billion Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project to power more than 410,000 UK homes, the structures have been designed to meet exacting specifications.
