Schlam has recently completed a successful shut down for a major gold miner in WA’s South West.

The 64 man project was time critical and required excellent project management and a highly skilled workforce in order to complete all wall sections and wall reline (hook liners) in the coarse ore stockpile feeder chutes.

We’re proud to say the team did exceptionally and met the client’s time frame with minimal operational disruption.

The team was compiled of 52 skilled boilermakers, 8 experienced trade assistants and 4 highly qualified supervisors.

The crew worked around the clock with hot seating breaks to ensure the job was done on time with regular communication and interaction with the client throughout the course of the a project.

Schlam’s exceptional excellent quality and safety systems enabled our team to deliver a safe and efficient service on site.

Schlam Engineering Site Manager, Nathan Campbell said the project was a great achievement for the company, being the first shutdown of this scale.

“We had a good crew on the job and they worked well together as a team to achieve the scope,” he said.

“The job started around 24hrs behind schedule and as a group we were able to claw the time back to within 8hrs of the scheduled completion.”

Schlam offers end to end asset management and maintenance solutions for both fixed and mobile plant and are committed to delivering reliable and efficient results for our mining partners.
