Help for flood victims in India

Oct 19, 2018

Kerala, India

Severe floods caused by heavy rainfall hit Kerala in southern India heavily in May and August. It was the worst monsoon in a century and caused almost 500 deaths, affecting at least 1 million people directly. 15 Indian KAEFER employees working in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates had to face devastating damage to their homes back in Kerala. Their colleagues from the Middle East came to help. Donations were collected across all locations and together with the financial aid of the KAEFER FOUNDATION these employees will be now able to rebuild their homes. We can’t thank all supporters enough.

Successful scaffolding project in Abu Dhabi

Aug 17, 2018

Ruwais, Abu Dhabi

Our colleagues in Abu Dhabi have successfully erected a 107 meters tall, 54 lifts scaffolding at the big C3 stripper column of Ruwais Refinery West Units (RRW UR). A team of 70 scaffolders utilised 23,310 m3 / 585 tons of scaffolding material for this job. Very hot weather, high humidity and the occasional strong wind were among the daily challenges. Our project team was recognised by our client ‘GS Engineering’ who awarded KAEFER for the valuable contributions in achieving 10 million man-hours without LTI at the RRW UR Project. Congratulations to everyone involved - keep up the very good and safe working attitude! Special thanks to our Scaffolding Design team at KAEFER Saudi Arabia for providing the design.
