Part of OPEC’s responsibility in the Marine Division is the storage and maintenance of equipment used in oil or chemical spills. In 2013, OPEC secured a contract with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) for the provision of storage and maintenance of National Plan equipment stockpiles in Townsville, Brisbane, Sydney and Dampier. This contract sees OPEC undertake maintenance services for both Tier 2 and 3 Level Oil Spill Response equipment, located at strategic locations throughout Australia.
OPEC has developed a comprehensive national capability for the storage of equipment used in oil or chemical spills through its extensive network of OPEC owned and managed warehouse facilities across Australia. To manage these assets and to provide emergency access and
support for our clients 24 hours a day, OPEC has invested in robust software and security systems offering total peace of mind to customers.
With a highly mobile workforce of tradespeople and technical specialists, OPEC is able to provide comprehensive maintenance services for a diverse array of mechanical equipment. OPEC operates well equipped maintenance workshops out of all its warehouse facilities and in addition the company runs a fleet of over 20 service vehicles and vessels to ensure that scheduled and reactive activities can be delivered reliably to our clients wherever they might be needed.
OPEC staff are highly regarded for their level of service quality, whilst demonstrating a strong commitment to WH&S. With a focus on marine related equipment, OPEC staff specialise in all designs and types of oil spill response equipment and aids to navigation technologies.
