Smelter stack, Geelong

 

Project scope

Fabricate and finish exposed structural steel frame to extend the height of a 70m stack at an aluminium smelter. Supply external stairs and handrail.

 

Challenges overcome

The smelter was operating so it was essential to meet critical delivery sequences within the construction program.

 
 

Complex paintwork

We abrasive blasted all exposed steel to class 2.5 and applied a three-coat paint system to a total dry film thickness 345 microns.
