PROJECT 1

SIEMENS


SIEMENS POWER GENERATION - NEWCASTLE


Brief

Rotor shaft to be transported & stored for a power station. Shaft approx dims 14m x 1m dia weight approx 80 tonnes. Shaft needs to

be inspected regularly as part of a maintenance program.

Solution

Our clients existing design was reviewed and then re-drafted to

accommodate new dimensions and inspection procedures particular to this project.

Once the new drawings were approved, the project team met and

put together a production plan, laying out a schedule of action right

through to despatch. More detailed working drawings were drafted, the materials were carefully selected, especially the heavy Douglas Fir

timber to be used for the base. Due to the careful planning of the

project team, the construction and fitting out of the case went ahead

without any complications. Once the case was delivered to site, our

in-house team of packers, together with our clients engineers, secured

and packed the shaft in accordance with the agreed packing procedure.
