Gove, NT

"a faster overall installation time"

RAW (Rope Access Welding) team engineered a rigging and hauling method using ropes to reduce risk of manual handling related injury when installing feedwell shelf. This method also reduces the time the shelf is suspended, thus reducing the higher risk of falling objects and a faster overall installation time.


  • Competitors’ method required more physical exertion and a higher risk of failure. Competitors’ method took approximately 6 days to fit shelf on previous job, whilst Giovenco’s method takes 24 hours to fit the shelf into position
  • Job progressed ahead of schedule
  • RAW team discovered and repaired additional defect that may have affected post project operation
