On this day, 11 Feb 15, ASPRI together with Singapore Refining Company (SRC) commemorated the success of the first Capability Development Grant (CDG) project completed by process plant owners and its resident contractors by organising the Singapore Refining Company (SRC) & Contractors’ Productivity Roadshow.
Our Association together with our members have always been enthusiastic and committed in finding new productivity initiatives. Being the inaugural CDG project successfully facilitated by ASPRI, we are proud of our participating member companies namely AD-Meth Mech-Field Pte Ltd, Hai Leck Engineering (Pte) Ltd, Hiap Seng Engineering Ltd, Kwang Peng Electrical and Engineering Pte Ltd, Major Insulation & Links (MIL) Marketing Pte Ltd, PEC Ltd, Plant Electrical Instrumentation Pte Ltd, P.S.E. Engineering and Construction Pte Ltd.
Graced by Mr. Lee Yi Shyan, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry and Ministry of National Development, the event saw a good turnout. In fact, it was an eye opener to many who witnessed the exciting live demonstrations and well-organised static displays.
This productivity project with subsidies from the Capability Development Grant from SPRING Singapore, was to encourage our member companies to adopt powered tools such as the self-propelled bundle puller and the automated hydro-jet cleaning machine. It has reaped productivity improvement of up to 40% with the reducing of workers’ fatigue and safer working environment.
As shared during ASPRI’s opening address by Mr. Francis Tay, ASPRI looks forward to more successful projects to come as a result of even closer tripartite partnership among the Government, Plant Owners and its ASPRI Member Companies.
