Rope access used for maintenance

When a major petrochemical producer in Mpumalanga
recently had to carry out routine maintenance on a 30-mhigh
chemical reactor, it opted for rope access for speedy
ingress, as opposed to the traditional method of erecting
an external scaffolding structure to allow access to the top
of the building.
Due to the fact that the components of the chemical reactor
are large and bulky, cranage is required to remove
anything during repair work that needs to be replaced. “Our
speciality is that, at short notice, we can go to site with
a small rope-access team to open up sections of the roof.
This allows for a mobile crane to be rigged and ready in
order to be able to lift any components that need repairs
or replacement up through the roof,” Skyriders marketing
manager Mike Zinn comments.
Not only is health and safety improved for the client, but
Skyriders’ rapid response allows for major time and cost
savings as well.
