Project: Atox Raw Mill Belt Weighers

Project Information
Power and signal cables were required for two new belt weighers as part of a waste reduction process project. The vertical section of the cable run was approximately 15 to 20 metres off the ground, directly above a ground mounted vibrating screen. To scaffold up to the ladder rack would have meant errecting the scaffold around the screen. This would have restricted access to the screen should maintenance be required or blockages to be removed. There was no access possible for a MEWP. The ATOX Raw Mill is scheduled to be shut down for maintenance for 12 hour periods on a weekly basis. ASUK were able to coincide with the down day and install the cables using rope access techniques for working at height. The working at height operation was completed during the 12 hour window.
