Hassanali: Preventative systems not effective

 Although Petrotrin had pre­ven­tative maintenance systems in place, some have not been effective in some cases, Hassa­nali admitted.

He said several recommenda­tions from such reports were being imple­men­ted but others were not, hence the need for the asset management committee.

Hassanali said: “We have to address these things in order of prio­rity. Sometimes, as indeed happens with the bund wall, our priorities may be wrong because the risks are con­cealed. We did not know, for example, that the bund wall was going to fail. We didn’t know that bund wall was improperly constructed in the year 2000, 

but that is a fact and it has happened.”
