PROJECT EXAMPLES

RMIT NAS BUILDING

APS designed, engineered, fabricated and installed various steel elements for the RMIT NAS building for our client, Lend Lease Building.

The project entailed design and install of all miscellaneous steelwork, full façade steel for the green building, shopfront steel and glass, seating bays, lighting trusses, window pods, skylights, public stairs and feature ceilings.

This required the full team of welding, fabrication, mechanical, rigging and scaffoldingpersonnel to complete the project on time and safely.

PIPING SYSTEM INSTALLATION

The APS multi-skilled rope access, mechanical and rigging teams were mobilised to a project to replace over 40, at height piping spools in a difficult to access area of the plant. APS personnel were required to conduct the lifting and rigging planning, then safely execute a complex cross haul across numerous traverses above the live plant, as there were no fixed lifting points or crane access. Once the complex rigging activities were completed, the APS mechanical teams installed each section to the customer’s specification, then hydraulically tightened and tested each bolt. The project was completed safely, ahead of time and with a perfect safety record.

GHECO ONE THERMAL PLANT

The GHECO-One plant in Thailand is a coal-fired thermal plant that began commercial operation in 2012.
The plant operates as an independent power producer under Thailand’s IPP program generating 660MW of power. APS were engaged to support critical maintenance and shutdown activities by providing the design, engineering and implementation of APS’s Technitruss access platform system.
Supported by rigging crews and mechanical technicians to deliver the turnaround, the project was delivered on time and safely with an exemplary record.

PAITON POWER STATION

Power station outages are high intensity, tight deadline projects as when they are offline, revenue is being lost, making speed and quality essential. APS was engaged by a customer to design, manufacture, erect and remove our Technitruss access platform system from the GDF Suez, Paiton Power Station. APS provided a range of mechanical and rigging services to complete the scope on time, with a perfect safety record. This performance saw the APS team invited back for future shutdown activities, a testament to the level of efficiency, safety and speed that the APS Suspended Access Platform System and personnel can provide.

GORGON LNG CONSTRUCTION

Initially contracted to the Gorgon LNG construction project in 2012, consistent, high-quality work saw the scope and APS site team continuously grow from a small team to 100+ tradesmen and rope access personnel. The complexity of the scope required our workforce to include mechanical fitters, riggers, scaffolders, boilermakers, and electricians, all of whom provided a wide range of specialist services. Working closely with tier one O&G contractors such as Downer, the APS staff provided safe, time and cost-effective mechanical solutions to support the complex construction activities being carried out, delivering our scopes with an outstanding safety record.

INPEX LNG CONSTRUCTION

Initially contracted to support complex rigging, scaffolding and specialist access works, consistent, high-quality delivery saw the scope and APS site team increase to providing Mechanical services to cranes, structure and plant equipment across the project. Working closely with the Tier 1 construction contractors such as Downer, the APS staff provided high quality, innovative solutions, which provided significant time and cost benefits to the overall project and the specific package of work that we were engaged on. The APS crew continued to be engaged throughout the project until its completion and operations commenced.
