We are pleased to announce that SICIM has been named as a Runner-up in the 2018 IPLOCA Environmental Award sponsored by Shell for the Use of Biologically Degradable Lubricants.
SICIM presented a conversion process (lubricant substitution) in which equipment is fitted up with a readily biodegradable hydraulic fluid: PANOLIN HLP SYNTH 46. It guarantees CO2 saving, contributing to save resources and to increase efficiency.
Furthermore the use of this oil ensures there is no toxicity danger in case of accidental release. This is a priority for SICIM in its path toward eco-friendly pipeline constrution.
This Environmental Award is presented every second year at the Open General Meeting (OGM) of the IPLOCA Convention to a Member who, in the opinion of the Adjudication Committee, has made a significant contribution in reducing the impact of pipeline construction on the environment.
SICIM General Manager, Mr. Leonardo Gravina, received the award certificate on September 13th, 2018 during the OGM held in London.
SICIM is committed to improve its environmental performances and we are proud of this milestone in such process.
