TWMA adapts equipment to provide critical service to major operator in UAE


Drilling waste specialist, TWMA, has adapted its onsite drilling waste handling equipment to support safe operations for a major operator as it manages through the current crisis.

TWMA’s powerful vacuum transfer trucks, which were already onsite to store and transfer drilling waste, have also been used to disinfect accommodation camps and project infrastructure to keep personnel safe.

The disinfectant is mixed with fresh water within the 15m3 vacuum tank mounted on the truck.  Utilising the pressure washer mounted on the back of the truck and wearing specific PPE required for cleaning operations, TWMA has successfully disinfected the accommodation camps and project infrastructure during the evenings when the number of personnel and operational movements are at a minimum.

Simon Tyldsley, UAE Director at TWMA said: “We are delighted to have been able to adapt our equipment to provide a critical service for our customer at this unprecedented time for the industry. This is yet another example of our customer and TWMA specialists coming together to provide a valuable solution that keeps everyone involved in the project safe.

“Safety is our number one priority at TWMA, and we will continue to do all we can to ensure everyone we work with stays safe”
