HELMS Kicks Off MOVE+ Mentorship Program with PETRONAS

Kuala Lumpur, 23 March 2023 – Helms Geomarine Sdn Bhd (HELMS), an offshore soil boring contractor of PETRONAS, kicks off the MOVE+ mentorship program at its Kuala Lumpur office, together with representatives from the Group HSE of PETRONAS. This program will see both PETRONAS’ and HELMS’ HSE representatives and management working closely for the upcoming months in achieving the targeted objectives.

The MOVE+ mentorship program aims to further elevate HELMS’ HSE capabilities, particularly in HSE Management through structured mentorship program aligned with Malaysia’s Department of Occupational Safety & Health (DOSH) and PETRONAS requirement. The outcome of the program will see a deeper level of collaboration and engagement between HELMS and PETRONAS, among others.

HELMS is one out of only six companies selected this year through a grand Appointment ceremony held on 16 January 2023 at Hilton Putrajaya Lakeside in Putrajaya, Malaysia. The selection of HELMS was based on a few criteria including having an active Contract with PETRONAS, high manhours intensity of more than 1 million as well as involvement of high risk activities, in particular pilot hole drilling operation. It is the first time an offshore survey contractor has been selected for the MOVE+ program, which was previously reserved for major EPC contractors.

Dato’ Helmi Zulkawi, the Managing Director of HELMS, expressed his gratitude and excitement about being selected for the program, saying, “We are committed to working closely with PETRONAS’ HSE team to ensure we achieve the target scoring criteria in order to graduate from the program by year-end.”

HELMS recently achieved one million safe manhours without lost time injury (LTI), indicating that the company is starting on the right footing. With a busy schedule ahead, mainly for PETRONAS, as well as other continuous projects in Japan, HELMS is determined to make the most of this opportunity to rise to new heights in terms of HSE standards. Overall, this is an exciting time to be a part of HELMS as the company continue to grow and expand.
