GAC in Action


Sri Lanka

Short notice service wins customer praise

Prasanna Ratnayake, GAC Shipping Sri Lanka’s Assistant Manager Operations on board the ‘Platinum Explorer’ whilst at anchorage off Trincomalee.

When the deep water drill ship ‘Platinum Explorer’ made a last minute decision to stop at Trincomalee anchorage en route to India, GAC Sri Lanka’s Operations team was asked to provide her with husbandry services.

Joining and departing crew members were air lifted and bussed between Colombo and Trincomalee. At the port, GAC’s own supply boats took them from the pier to the ship. The team also took care of provisions and garbage disposal.

“Although it was a last minute decision to call at Trincomalee, your whole team really pulled together and achieved the crew changes and provisions exceptionally well.”
- Peter Burnett, Platinum Explorer’s Rig Manager


Creative fun in play for annual gathering

GAC Sri Lanka’s annual staff get-together brought 170 together from around the country for a day of fun, creativity and teamwork. Activities included a treasure hunt, games, and sketch performances in themed costumes.

The team treasure hunt involved located a set of nine clues while completed tasks like weaving coconut leaves, making a clay elephant and counting coins.
