  • SAFETY FIRST APPROACH

As a major project partner for all mechanical installation works at the new West End Brewery, TFG Group offered specialised solutions backed by extensive industry knowledge and an experienced team of welders, fitters and project management specialists.

As part of the brewery upgrade project by brewing giant Lion, TFG were engaged to upgrade the malt handling facilities within the brewery. The new facilities had to be installed and commissioned to coincide with the seven week shutdown to ensure no additional lost production time. During this time, TFG worked with temporary pipe relocations to ensure vessels could be swapped out without disruption to existing operations.

  • Installation of new Kunzil malt handling system
  • Commissioning of new system to coincide with new brewhouse operations
  • Decommission and removal of old malt handling system
  • TFG Fabrication Division fabricated access ladders and platforms to Australian Standards.

The West End Brewery upgrade ran for two years with 35 specialised welders from TFG onsite full time. To ensure the safety of their employees, sub-contractors and operations staff, TFG employed a dedicated onsite safety officer to oversee the project. As a result, 68,000 man hours were worked with zero safety incidents, MTIs or LTIs. This safety first approach was particularly pertinent given that the total shut down time for the installation was only seven weeks.
