WATER FARM & BOILER UPGRADE, Adelaide
Project Hyde Park - West End Brewery
Location: South Australia
The water farm relocation and installation was completed whilst the plant was at full running capacity. To ensure no loss of production, TFG Group implemented a phased installation of the new vessels whilst systematically decommissioning and phasing out the old water farm. This included five new water vessels and four Clean in Place (CIP) tanks.
Two new boilers were installed using 350mm nominal bore steel pipework with the old boilers decommissioned and removed from the site.
TFG installed a large amount of temporary pipework to allow continuous production whilst vessels were changed out. These temporary works were then removed at the end of the project.
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.
