The Project

TBS was contracted to undertake the complete demolition of brick refractory within the kiln and replace this with a new lining specified and supplied by the customer.

The shutdown itself involved 6000 labour hours including 20 staff working 24 hours in a day shift/ night shift roster over a 6 week period.

The refractory demolition was particularly challenging and involved the team devising a safe and controlled methodology using suspended mobile scaffold platforms. This method then extended to the brick installation which resulted in a several week saving to the shutdown period. The programme was further able to be shortened by using a unique Engineering certified material hoist system designed by TBS.

Key to safety on this project was the development of a comprehensive JSEA
surrounding the suspended mobile platform system operating in the confined space of the kiln.
