September 27th was one of the highlights on the Puregas calendar for 2017. The Annual Partnership Awards were held at the World Trade Centre in Morningside, with stunning views of the Sandton skyline.
As always, the focus of the event is to acknowledge our customers, with the main emphasis being on the results of the safety audits done by our Technical Manager Grant Gascoinge. Once again we’d like thank our customers participating in these audits and congratulate all the award winners.
Another highlight of the event was the presentation of the progress made with installing the new 500m33 butane storage vessel. After two years of planning and regulatory approvals this project is finally coming to fruition, with the project expected to be completed by end of November 2017. This project was started, as Propellant supply has always been a concern and will give Puregas an additional 250 ton of storage. This will improve Puregas’ ability to ensure the continuity of propellant supply to its partners during shortages.
Guest speaker, Clem Sunter gave an informative adaptation on how to be a fox, to juggle ideas and adapt to how the world is changing. Sunter highlighted the cloudy and clockwork flags changing the global business game, leaving guests enlightened on the importance of leadership and nurturing entrepreneurial spark.
We would like to thank all of our customers, suppliers and guests for attending the awards and look forward to seeing you at the next one.
