BLUE CIRCLE SOUTHERN CEMENT
 

Illawarra Engineering Services carried out its entire scope of work without incident or injury and takes pride in knowing that through its Project Integration Management Plans, open communication methods and active participation in daily information sharing seminars, it successfully assisted a valued client achieve its shutdown goals and equipment reliability.

 
UNDERGROUND COAL GASIFICATION SURAT BASIN QLD (2008)
 

The Carbon Energy UCG was an exciting and dynamic project for IES. The accurately planned integration between operation commissioning and on-going construction activities were critical factors in achieving an effective delivery to our customer. Open channels of communication and strict adherence to isolation procedures and Codes of Practice were the control mechanisms used to ensure zero harm to personnel working on the 'live' plant.

 
ALCAN GOVE G3 REFINERY UPGRADE ALUMINA HANDLING
 

Establishing and maintaining a safe work environment was vital to the successful delivery of this project. There were three major risk areas, a major part of the work was 85 metres above ground, integration with Brownfield process, and continuous 12hr shifts. IES adopted a cross-matrix management approach to identify and mitigate risks and control the day to day hazards. This meant that daily reporting, information sharing and handover of detailed internal work between day and night shift crews ensured the total well being of the team and protection of the client’s investment.

 
BUNDAMBA ADVANCED WATER TREATMENT PLANT
 

The objective of the IES sub-contract agreement was to assist in maintaining the Critical Path Construction Program. By commencing a night shift roster and performing Class 1 welding followed by continuous fabrication, non-destructive testing, and installation of the pipe work during the day, IES maintained such an accelerated schedule that this method was subsequently applied to all future IES site works. This has proved to be a significant achievement in terms of productivity and reaching milestones.

 
NORTHERN REGIONAL WATER PIPELINE ALLIANCE CONSTRUCTION
 

After a recommendation to McConnell Dowell from members of Southern Regional Pipeline Alliance, IES entered into a Sub-contract agreement with McConnell Dowell to assist in maintaining the Critical Path Construction Program for the Northern pipeline. Work quality and cleanliness was paramount during the construction phases. Our mechanical personnel used best practice pump-to-flange assembly and pipe fabrication techniques.

 
GRANGE AVENUE LFG POWER PLANT
 

IES refurbished one of the Company’s existing Power Generation assets in-house which significantly reduced the capital expenditure. Although small in stature, Grange Avenue had an extensive Stakeholder Management strategy because an adverse reaction from many sources could have seriously affected the success of the project. IES maximised every opportunity to portray it as a modern source of renewable energy by allowing visitors onto the site and engaging in open communication and education. Construction techniques were curtailed, equipment was new and silenced, working times were not exceeded and the surrounding environment was rejuvenated by planting new trees and turf.
