Schlam has recently completed a successful shut down for a gold miner in WA’s South West.
The 64 man project was time-critical and required excellent project management and a highly skilled workforce to complete all wall sections, and wall reline (hook liners) in the coarse ore stockpile feeder chutes.
We’re proud to say the team did exceptionally and met the client’s time frame with minimal operational disruption.
The team was compiled of 52 skilled boilermakers, eight experienced trade assistants and four highly qualified supervisors.
The crew worked around the clock with hot seating breaks to ensure the job was done on time with regular communication and interaction with the client throughout the project.
Schlam’s exceptional quality and safety systems enabled our team to deliver a safe and efficient service on-site.
Schlam Site Manager, Nathan Campbell said the project was a great achievement for the company, being the first shutdown of this scale.
“We had a good crew on the job, and they worked well together as a team to achieve the scope,” he said.
“The job started around 24 hours behind schedule, and as a group, we were able to claw the time back to within eight hours of the scheduled completion.”
Schlam offers end to end asset management and maintenance solutions for both fixed and mobile plant and is committed to delivering reliable and efficient results for our mining partners.
