To minimise these costs, the plant must be kept off line for the minimum time possible. Inspection and maintenance activities must be focussed on providing efficient, high value results.
Providing access for inspection and repairs is a key cost in the process of completing a shutdown.
Access is most commonly provided through:
- Permanent entry points and platforms.
- Temporary Scaffolding / Access measures.
ALS has been working with our clients to innovate away from temporary facilities where rope access services can provide benefits over other access techniques.
The key benefits of using rope access for internal boiler inspections include:
- The scaffolding of internal areas is removed, saving both time and money.
- The approach provides a lower cost and time saving alternative to swing stages since the inspection from ropes can be completed before a swing stage is able to be set up.
- Improved visual inspection outcomes are often achieved due to the greater ability to get up close visual access of critical areas.
