Rope access for 30-m-high chemical reactor maintenance

04 September 2019

When a major petrochemical producer in Mpumalanga recently had to carry out routine maintenance on a 30-m-high chemical reactor itself contained within a building, 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.

Not only is health and safety improved for the client, but Skyriders’ rapid response allows for major time- and cost-savings as well. Such has been its success at the major petrochemical producer that Skyriders has been undertaking maintenance and repair work there for the past three years.

Skyriders is able to offer such customers peace of mind that it has the proper safety measures and risk assessments in place to ensure that these projects run like clockwork.
