Broadspectrum is leveraging its cross-sector knowledge from its resources team to provide a national fuel maintenance solution to benefit its Defence contracts.
The company provides operations and maintenance services to oil and gas clients, and according to chief executive (Resources) Tom Quinn, it has amassed considerable knowledge and experience in maintaining fuel facilities.
“Broadspectrum [already] provides mechanical and electrical maintenance, facilities maintenance and fire emergency services to Defence bases across Australia,” Quin said.
“The maintenance of fuel facilities at Defence bases was previously a task subcontracted to different providers at each site – Broadspectrum’s fuel maintenance solution benefits Defence by providing a more efficient, and cost-effective service that also focuses on a disciplined execution of quality service under a national model.”
The solution is now in successful operation in WA, SA, NT, Victoria and Tasmania on 43 Defence sites.
Quinn said since going live in August results have been very promising. “We recruited 23 new employees to run the model, and their high standard of work is providing significant value-add to our client.”
Broadspectrum’s chief executive (Government Services and Outsourcing) Derek Osborn said making full use of our cross-sector knowledge puts the company in an advantageous position to provide innovative and effective solutions, simplifying and homogenising procedures with best practice while saving time and money.
“This cross-sector collaboration between our work with the Department of Defence and our Resources sector has added value for our client while lifting the standards applied to these critical fuel assets,” Osborn said. “This initiative will gradually be scaled up as we lift to meet the full demand of our client and the rejuvenation of the fuel installations nationally.”
