– Scope: Maintenance of two storage tanks at a petrochemicals producer.
Skyriders appointed 8 specialists to do maintenance on a petrochemical plant in Mpumalanga. This project was commissioned during Alert Level 5 of the Covid-19 lockdown. The project required additional safety measures as a result and what was taken into account above all the standards was that each employee be vetted before work in addition to the mandatory sanitisation that was necessary.
Persons working on the tanks required additional PPE. Finally, the project required a high-pressure jetting to clean the sides, roofs, columns and the floor of the tank. The purpose of the high pressure jetting was to remove residue or waste which had built up as a result of daily usage.
