In 2010, the Hertel team at the ExxonMobil refinery in Rotterdam achieved top marks for complying with the company’s stringent safety standards.
With memories of the previous milestone still fresh in the mind, the Hertel team at the Sime Darby Yard in Malaysia recently celebrated a further safety achievement.
The two core values that Indaver sets great store by are mutual trust and result-orientated work. These values are also high on the list of priorities at Hertel.
