Falck Fire Services UK has commenced delivery of industrial firefighting, medical response, high quality fire engineering consultancy and security services at the INEOS Nitriles Seal Sands Site, as of June 1, 2020.

The fully-integrated Industrial Emergency Response Service is part of Falck’s shared service provision, which provides protective services to the Seal Sands and North Tees Chemical Parks including leading chemical producer SABIC UK Petrochemicals and Navigator Terminals.

It said: “This further expansion reflects the strength and depth of the professional services that Falck has delivered to customers across Teesside for over 10 years, with the seamless interaction of first-class engineering and emergency response services.”

As they are going through “major transformation”, INEOS Nitriles and BASF, who also have manufacturing assets on the Chemical Park, “require competent and guaranteed services, delivered efficiently and economically, maximising the value of Falck’s Shared Service methodology”.

Jon Howard, INEOS Nitriles Site Director, said: “INEOS Nitriles is very pleased to be partnering with Falck Fire Services through the transformation of the site. Our primary concern is to ensure our operations are safe and secure and we believe that by working with Falck we are ensuring we have the most professional levels of service available from initial stages of planning and engineering all the way through to emergency response. We look forward to continuing this partnership into the next stages of the site’s development.”

Falck Fire Services Managing Director, Robert Peasgood, added: “Falck’s working relationship with our clients at Seal Sands has been critical through a series of business transformations, assuring their emergency response and business continuity and ensuring they can focus on their asset development. The expansion to include the assets of INEOS and BASF at Seal Sands into the same protective net is a natural development providing consistency of high quality service and ensuring that INEOS Nitriles can take advantage of Falck’s input through the next stages of site transformation. Falck is delighted to be an increasing part of INEOS Nitrile’s corporate and operational risk management.”
