ENGINEERING: Improved Facilities At Sturrock

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

After identifying a need to offer its customers a faster turnaround on blast and paint jobs, DCD-DORBYL Marine has revamped and upgraded the old National Ports Authority (TNPA) blast shop opposite the Sturrock dry dock in Cape Town.

We started work on the facility in December 2008 and completed the revamp in May 2009,” Mark Sylvester, manager – industrial and offshore for DCD-DORBYL Marine, says. “The revamp required both structural and cosmetic work, including roof repairs as well as redoing the side wall cladding. In addition, we also built a wall in the centre of the building to create separate, but linked operations for blasting on the one side and spray painting on the other.”

Gerrit Bezuidenhout, the project manager for DCD-DORBYL Marine’s Industrial Division and who is also responsible for the blast shop, says that extraction fans have been installed to ensure compliance to health, safety and environmental requirements.

In addition the four existing blast pots have been upgraded and two new hoppers have been added

The new facility offers a number of benefits to our marine- and fast growing industrial customer base. First, and foremost, is the fact that we are able to provide customers with a much faster turnaround on work without compromising on quality”. Sylvester says.

The new arrangement means that we can prioritise work scheduling based on specific customer and project requirements which could change at short notice. We have had very positive feedback from our customers who are more than satisfied with the quick turnaround and close control of the entire quality assurance process.
