BW Offshore values its relationship with all vendors. The information needed to support the qualification process for new vendors can be found on this page.
The summary below will give vendors an insight into BW Offshore’s commitment to safety, quality and ethical standards, and how it will work with vendors to achieve this.
This Vendor Qualification process has been developed to build a strong foundation for business partnerships with vendors by securing the same high level of standards across the globe for SAFETY, QUALITY, FINANCIAL STRENGTH, TECHNICAL CAPABILITY AND DUE DILLIGENCE.
In our line of business, maintaining control of Major Accident Hazards and the integrity of the FPSO throughout the life cycle of the asset is at the core of our business. This means maintaining a high focus on safety and quality in all our deliverables and processes, in projects as well as operations. Everyone working for BWO and those who work on our behalf contribute to achieving this.
BWO takes our relationships with our vendors seriously. We consider HSEQ evaluation an important part of our vendor qualification process because we recognize the importance of those who are supplying goods and services to our organization. BWO wants to work with vendors who share our commitment to prioritizing Quality, Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) in everything they do. Our vendors are expected to comply with BWO’s standards including legislative and regulatory requirements in the countries where the delivery or service is carried out (compliance with local requirements).
BWO strives to raise the level of quality, reliability and due diligence in our deliverables to both operations and projects. To achieve this, BWO must maintain vendors who have been assessed and qualified to a level required to where they can be invited to bid.
