Talen Energy successfully uses MHT’s rope access services
proach eases the budgeting pains and reduces the production and safety concerns that facility managers and engineers feel when faced with urgent mechanical integrity issues.
Developed over the past few decades, rope access has quickly become established across the U.S. energy, civil engineering and construction sectors as a best practice. Whether used in conjunction with other access and lifting methods or on its own, rope access has proven to be a safe and highly efficient means of assisting the most challenging of tasks, large or small. MHT has perfected rope access services and proves this with its continual success and customer satisfaction.
In this time of need, Brunner Island Plant Engineer Charles Anthony prepared material and labor-bid specifications conclusively determining the piping work could be done without scaffolfding. The decision was made to use rope access, because it is safer than using scaffolding. Aside from the safety factor, rope access also allows for work to be done at almost any angle needed during a project. Having the ability to use rope access methods also cuts down on the cost of a project due it being much more cost-effective than scaffolding .With all of these factors, rope access was an obvious choice for Anthony.
“MHT took the time to understand the work scope during the bidding process and successfully accomplished the job by carefully evaluating each and every rigging aspect,” Anthony said. “The job MHT completed for us was better performed through rope access than by traditional means using scaffolding and other craft trades. We will keep MHT in mind for future work opportunities.”
MHT safely rigged 120 pipes sections to replace the sections that were corroded and leaking. The amount of piping used equated to nearly 80,000 pounds of total load. Not only did MHT provide quality labor but the project was also finished ahead of schedule and completed under budget.
MHT’s innovative work method has proven to be effective for certain applications usually involving traditional scaffolding, MHT’s value-added approach has established the company as a leader among on and offshore service providers.
