It’s good to start the Year with a large job as generally it takes a little time to get back to normal after the Christmas / New Year holidays. This Year we are fortunate to have won a contract for the removal of 1,500 heat exchanger tubes and tube plate within a large heat exchanger durring the annual shut down at a local factory. To meet the delivery period we are having to work around the clock on the job which is located 30m high on an access scaffold with little or no protection from the weather. Part of the job is within a ‘confined space’ so safety training was carried out before the job started to comply with the customers requirments. Each tube is 76mm diameter and 3m long so a lot of the work is getting the tubes up into position!
