BHP Billiton – Cannington Port, Townsville
How to you design and install a scaffolding to the underside of an active export facility for emergency repairs at short notice? You build it on land, crane it onto a barge, float it under the wharf and lift it into position and secure it in place. Sound easy right?
When you have the worlds best scaffolding system, an experienced team with all the skills and knowledge and the confidence of one of the worlds largest mining companies, anything is possible.
Within 8 hours from the breakdown, the repairs were made, the scaffolding removed and exporting operations were resumed.
Without having built a relationship built on trust and collaboration over many years, this project would not have been possible in such a short time frame. A project of this complexity and risk would have normally taken many weeks of risk assessments and design reviews but the project was completed safely and without incident or disruption to the shipping schedule.
