Solution

Total Height Safety have a support service for all the Meridian Hydro Stations. This involves inspection and installation of all safety systems and inspection of all the safety equipment. These hydroelectric generation sites contribute power to the national grid.

Overview

This was a challenging job as the roof structure was copper roof with lightweight cement filled steel tray deck. The team installed the SafetyLink system using a toggle bolt anchor plate system. This job involved one man travelling on a gantry crane with a tarp spread over it, to collect the debris. This ensured no debris would fall onto the plant below. This was a well organised process with constant communication via radio with the Meridian staff to ensure correct crane positioning prior to drilling.
