“TP exceeded project completion date”

Mechanically challenging material handling equipment installed at Viterra NZ Ltd

TP Engineering Ltd were contracted to manufacture some of the components and full installation of the material handling equipment shipped from Holland for Viterra’s feed mill. The animal food processing equipment included a 30m long bucket elevator, 101 storage hoppers, chain conveyor, storage tanks, grinders, presses, augers, platforms, handrails, micro dosing system, ducting, chimneys, bag houses, textured feed system, bagging unit, stairwells, pneumatic slide gates and explosion chutes. The TP engineers were also responsible for the build of the structural building and commissioning.

Sixty engineers on the project

At the peak there were 60 TP Engineering Ltd Employees on site and in our workshop and mechanical, electrical and civil work carried out concurrently. This major multi skilled plant installation was successfully achieved in an incredibly short time frame spanning just 8 months, utilising our own riggers, scaffolders, fitter/welders, pipe fabricators, fitter turners, project engineers throughout this materials handling equipment project.

Zero harm with 65000 man hours

The project achieved all safety targets as the entire work force embraced the safety objective resulting in zero harm despite a massive 65,000 man hours on the project.

The Challenge for TP Engineers

Weather conditions and working at height to meet the target milestone was only achievable by forward planning and co-ordination with all other trades and TP Engineering Ltd employees to meet and exceed completion dates.
