News from 16th March 2017

After three days of waiting for the wind to drop, last Wednesday the conditions were perfect for the TSL Module 85 lift. The module weighing 400 tonnes and a 100 tonnes of rigging this was an impressive lift. Despite the concerns from many on site that the crane boom wasn’t long enough there was still 13 metres of cable between the top of the boom and the hook block. The module went onto position without any issues and was completed in less than 90 minutes. With this lift it will give everybody an appreciation of what the furnace will look like, it is now visible from many vantage points around Port Pirie.
