    BHEM is a member of the Bin Ham Group which consists of companies that operate in the fields of oil & gas, agriculture & sewerage networks, landscaping, civil construction, hotel & tourism, food & beverage, education, real-estate, and the financial sector.
    As a leader in the contracting business in the UAE, BHEM has successfully executed a large variety of projects from the design, supply, installation, operation, and maintenance of SCADA control systems for farms in remote locations to the operation, maintenance, and management of waste water and irrigation water pumping stations.
    Since the beginning of my activity in this company I worked as a supervisor and i led a team of four plumbers, two electricians and two mechanics. We performed  mechanical and electrical maintenance or repair of pipe-lines and  pumps used in oil transportation, irrigation systems and for domestic or drainage water. We have to repair or replace PVC or iron pipes wich are dameged or rusted . I have replaced or unlocked different types or sizes of valves, we have replaced or repaired water pump parts (bearings, mechanical seals, elastic connections, empelers, etc). I had to supervise activities such as: 
         - Vibration monitoring
         - Disassembly / Reassembly & Testing.  This work  include  internal manhole covers, trays, nozzles, flappers etc. 
         - Transportation of components to the designated cleaning area, Industrial Cleaning of equipment and components .
         -  Replacement of catalyst or other inventories, mechanical isolations, equipment removal, open, clean, reassembly and installation, remedial tasks such as bearing, shaft, couplings, seals and mechanical seal maintenance,  pre-commissioning activities.
          - Ensuring that Company and statutory safety requirements are adhered to in all mechanical maintenance activities undertaken by Contractor personnel and Sub Contractors
          - Compiling, completing and submitting of reports, QA/QC, and records and documentation to the required standards and at the relevant frequency.
           - Provide evidence of Work Order Progress and Execution and Work Order Feedback
           - Prepare procedures for the maintenance activities execution, recording and submittal of resources with the corresponding work durations, material and spare parts used.
           - Detailing approvals and work permits required prior to commencement of activities and shut-down needs.
    In United Arab Emirates, the climate is dry and low rate rainfall, so irrigation system is well developed. Water pumping stations are equipped with varied types of resistant and modern equipments (vertical or horizontal surface pumps and depth pumps). Some of these pumping stations are in isolated areas, not connected to the electricity network, so that the pumps are powered by diesel engines. Together with a team of workers i have performed maintenance and minor repairs for these engines operating in the field location. For large-scale works (replacement of crankshaft, camshafts, valves, pistons and piston rings) we need to transport motor-pump assembly into the work-shop where i can make the necessary repairs, tests of operation, and after that relocation and restart the assembly. 
    Each month, for 2 weeks i have to operate repairs in work-shop where i have to coordinate a team of 10 mechanics and 6 electricians. Here we perform maintenance and repair work of : gear boxes; engines; hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical systems for light vehicles (cars Ford Mondeo and Focus, Mitsubishi Pajero,Toyota Camry and Corolla, pick-up Toyota Hilux, Mitsubishi L200, Mazda) and for the construction heavy equipment (excavators CAT 325, crawler tractors CAT D6 and D11, telehandler and backhoeloader Caterpillar and JCB, water tankers, diesel tankers, tippers  MAN, IVECO, MERCEDES ACTROS). 
    Bin Ham Company EM is responsible for maintenance and repairs for a total of 30 generating units located inside a military camp of Sharjah city in northern UAE. Periodically, together with the Project Manager of this location,we have to update the plan of maintenance and repairs for these generators (mostly Caterpillar: C3412, C18, C32, D399; Perkins and Cummins , etc.) in order to maintain a good functioning and reduce the risk of crash .
          In this area, together with project manager I had to coordinate the maintenance and repair plans for different equipments (compressors Ingersoll Rand  and  Atlas Copco, mixers, different  types of valves, gas turbines) and pipe-lines  in Fujairah and  Jebel Ali oil terminals.  
    In work carried out here is a great emphasis on compliance with work safety rules. Every week we have safety meeting sessions where we discuss the implementation of new rules on this subject or we take a closer look at the problems we faced last week.
