Suretank provide engineered solutions including offshore tanks and containers for the offshore oil and gas sector.

Producer of offshore tanks and offshore containers gains a LEAN advantage.

We are delighted to announce that two members ( Padraig Conneely & Sean Wakely ) of Suretanks’ LEAN INITIATIVE team have successfully completed their Lean Sigma Green Belt training.

Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organisation ("Champions", "Black Belts", "Green Belts", "Yellow Belts", etc.) who are experts in these methods


Our Lean Initiative is providing a focused approach to identify/reduce/eliminate non-value activities from our processes during the production of our range of offshore tanks and offshore containers.

The recent training has provided Padraig and Sean with the skills to apply lean six sigma tools at the appropriate stage to the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control ) framework to deliver measurable process improvements and cost savings.

As part of their training Padraig and Sean have successfully completed individual process improvement projects in our tank cleaning and painting facilities. 

Suretank’s LEAN INITIATIVE is a critical aspect of our business development strategy helping to ensure ongoing efficiencies and quality in the production of our products for the offshore oil and gas industry.
