On the GF Engineering front, things have been quite busy.
GFE is coming to the completion of the Kwinana Waste to Energy Project works, which has been an ongoing project for the last 15 months. The last of the pipe spools are heading out of the paint yard to site for installation.
A massive shoutout to the team and our subcontractors for going above and beyond on what is a very demanding project.
The yard upgrade is also nearing completion.
An additional 2x 20-inch domes are being erected. These will serve multiple purposes – used to store clients’ free issue fittings and flanges under cover or to aid our 3rd party processes (NDT/Hydrotesting) working under cover. Clearing out and resurfacing one of the yards to provide a clean 850m2 laydown area is now complete also.
GFE is continuing to support Chevron in emergency rush works with Wheatstone Train 1 Shutdown. Completion of a 1050nb x 500nb XS Eccentric Reducing spool with flanges on inclinations/rotated bolt holes all to be fabricated within a 1mm across 3x axis. Fabrication, survey, 100% RT, hydrotesting and painting were all completed in 10 days. It was a great team effort to ensure that survey & Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) passed the first time.
Great work was carried out by PTS to push through NDT and hydrotesting in 1 day with JP’s ensuring priority of the spool through the paint yard.
GFE is soon to begin receiving the beginning of approx 700T of Carbon Steel pipe, flanges & fittings for the Waitsia Stage 2 project.
Watch this space – more exciting news to come.
