Triune starts hiring again as fortunes improve

What a difference eight months makes! In October 2015 Delhi-based Triune Energy Services was forced to lay off 30 workers as it struggled to win contracts in a depressed market.

Fast forward to July 2016 and Triune is on a major recruitment drive, looking to fill 31 vacancies, after winning two giant offshore ONGC projects. Triune's human resources department on July 1 invited candidates to apply for jobs in its civil, structural, general civil, piping, instrumentation, planning and process departments.

"We have contracts to upgrade 63 offshore platforms," says a Triune HR source. "It's a huge task and must be delivered within a tight timeframe.

" Triune and partners AFCONS and Halani Offshore on May 27 won ONGC's Life Extension Well Platforms Project-2 (LEWPP-2) to restore 43 offshore platforms for $177.3m. Earlier in January, the same consortium won the LEWPP-1 project, quoting $160.46m to upgrade 20 offshore platforms.

"Winning two large contracts is a major breakthrough," adds Triune. In Delhi, Triune's office has begun engineering and design work on LEWPP-1 for which AFCONS will oversee procurement and construction while Halani will provide marine services.

Triune has 18 vacancies in its piping department alone - it needs three lead engineers, four engineers, two engineer modellers, two senior draftsmen, two senior designers, two draftsmen modellers, and engineers for stress and piping material.
