Our Industrial Services team at Crestmead, Brisbane recently received the Members’ Choice Award for Health and Safety Innovation at the Queensland Power Generator Safety Forum.
In partnership with Stanwell, UGL and Hammelmann, the Cleanaway team under the leadership of Paul Tormey, were recognised for implementing a safe and efficient solution to air heater basket cleaning at a Stanwell Corporation’s Tarong Power Station.
The task of cleaning air heater baskets had traditionally been carried out using a high pressure hand lance with operators standing on uneven surfaces to perform cleaning activities. The Cleanaway team implemented a pneumatically driven trolley with pressure nozzles for cleaning the baskets, which effectively removed the requirement for operators entering the space. This reduced confined space entry activities from 30 down to only two.
Crestmead Business Development Manager Jack Shelley and Supervisor Aaron Marmara were there to accept the award on presentation night where over 30 nominations and eight presentations were considered.
