Despite a contraction of activity in 2016-17, Newrest SOS was able to mobilize new contracts.
The year was a relatively fruitful one for the joint venture on a commercial and operational level. The teams supported major oil drilling projects with Otto Energy, Polyard, Total, Galoc Production, the French Navy, Atwood, Rubicon and many more.
The range of services proposed by Newrest SOS remains incredibly diverse: administrative work, obtaining oil authorisations, staff transport, explosives transport, safety and environmental assistance, office rental, staff recruitment and supply, travel agency, ship supply, maintenance and cleaning and, of course, catering.
In terms of quality and hygiene, Newrest SOS renewed all of its ISO 9001 and OSHAS 18001 certification and committed to a global training plan to ensure all employees receive training in first aid, fatigue management and fire- fighting.
The joint venture also continued its commitment to lower the environmental impact of its operations. To secure all journeys for employees and customers, Newrest SOS is finalising the installation of a geolocation system for its entire fleet.
The work carried out this year should enable 2017-18 to be approached with a lot of ambition in commercial, operational and financial terms. The main road map for the managerial change initiated for the new year 2017-18 in coordination with all teams will be to restore the subsidiary’s economic performances of the previous years, develop the Newrest Group traditional activities and capitalise on the strength of our network to share Newrest SOS long-standing know-how in support services.
