Muscat Daily - - CORPORATE NEWS -

So­har Port and Free­zone has re­cently been awarded the In­ter­na­tional Cer­tifi­cate of As­set Man­age­ment Sys­tem (ISO 55001) from Lloyd’s Reg­is­ter Group. The cer­ti­fi­ca­tion po­si­tions So­har as a fore­run­ner in the sec­tor, mak­ing it the first port in the Mid­dle East to re­ceive the ac­co­lade.

High­light­ing the im­por­tance of this award, Mark Geilenkirc­hen, CEO of So­har Port said, “We are very proud to have been awarded the ISO 55001 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, which goes on demon­strate our com­mit­ment to­wards de­liv­er­ing only the best qual­ity ser­vices to our cus­tomers as per their ex­pec­ta­tions and en­sur­ing that the man­age­ment and main­te­nance of our in­fra­struc­ture aligns with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. We be­lieve that the stan­dard, which be­gan its im­ple­men­ta­tion at the end of 2018, will at­tract new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties while si­mul­ta­ne­ously sup­port­ing the ef­fi­ciency of our al­ready ex­ist­ing ten­ants.”

The ISO 55001 is an in­ter­na­tional stan­dard frame­work to man­age port in­fra­struc­ture. This is done by trans­form­ing an or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ob­jec­tives into as­set-re­lated de­ci­sions, plans and ac­tiv­i­ties util­is­ing a riskbased ap­proach. Achiev­ing this cer­ti­fi­ca­tion en­hances and reg­u­lates the As­set Man­age­ment pro­cesses at SO­HAR, in terms of ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness, through a struc­tured ap­proach that is linked to its or­gan­i­sa­tional ob­jec­tives. Fur­ther­more, it un­doubt­edly con­trib­utes to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of So­har, re­in­forc­ing their rep­u­ta­tion for con­stant improvemen­t.

Eng Ali al Ya­mani, Ex­ec­u­tive Tech­ni­cal Man­ager at So­har Port and Free­zone, said, “I would like to extend my grat­i­tude to all our em­ploy­ees and the project team for all their ef­forts in en­abling us to re­ceive the ISO 55001 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. This is a truly in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment and fur­ther po­si­tions SO­HAR as a lead­ing lo­gis­tics hub in the re­gion.”
