Whakatane Paper Mill

Solution

Whakatane Mill is located in Whakatane, Bay of Plenty, and is part of the Pulp & Paper Mills Industry.

Overview

For this project we were installing overhead rail onto walk platforms, cable system across the machine which included various anchor points and rail systems along walkways. This system was required during roll replacements (Paper making, milling machine) when the large rollers are removed a fall hazard is created, so the systems we install are used by the maintenance crew during this process. We supply appropriate PPE, for them to carry out their work safely. Client is given training (Maintenance) on safety use of equipment in site specific format. Job was challenging as the entire machine was made of stainless steel proving difficult to drill with a hand drill, but we got there in the end through sheer determination from team. A very satisfying job when complete.
