Sakhalin 20 Years Celebration

13 July 2018 ,  —

Sakhalin, Russia

This year is truly special, as International SOS celebrates 20 years on Sakhalin. From the very beginning, the Sakhalin office has provided medical support to very large projects Sakhalin-1 and Sakhalin-2 on Sakhalin Island and the Far East of Russia. Both on shore and off shore, and on remote sites, with harsh subarctic conditions, these isolated large complex projects, with limited access, severe winter conditions and complex construction activities required unique healthcare solutions which International SOS Sakhalin continues to provide to address the challenges facing the employees of project owners and subcontractors.

Sakhalin 20 years long

Pierre Palayan, Branch Manager at International SOS Sakhalin, Russia, said, "This incredible journey started 20 years ago and this is a great opportunity to thank the International SOS staff for their continuing care, dedication and professionalism, some of which recall the early days when the company consisted of two small rooms and five individuals. This is also a special occasion to thank our clients and remind them that it has been a pleasure to work with them and for all their support. Twenty years later, and with approximately 140 staff, this remarkable journey continues with Sakhalin supporting further projects in the Far East of Russia."
