Laing O’Rourke was contracted by BHP to complete the demolition of two mine sites in the Goldsworthy northern area (Yarrie and Nimingarra). Before commencing any demolition works, a rigorous zero energy procedure had to be carried out.
- Safely, efficiently and effectively de-energised all sources of energy, ensuring a positive and visual confirmation. These works had to be completed prior to commencing any demolition work or removal of any services, equipment, buildings or structures.
- PARC provided a team of Electrical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers and Supervisors, to systematically assess mine infrastructure. This included conveyors, train load-out systems, primary crushers, HV/LV workshops, high voltage powerlines, substation and camps. Where de-energisation was required, PARC had a multidiscipline crew with plant, equipment and tooling to complete the works.
- The scope was successfully completed under PARC’s own systems and procedures (including electrical and plumbing license), on time and without incident.
