Blast Furnaces – A KJ scaffolding specialty!
KJ has a long history and comprehensive experience in scaffolding activities associated with the construction, maintenance and relining of blast furnaces.
In 1992, KJ was involved in planning and building the scaffolding for the construction of the No.6 Blast Furnace at the BHP Port Kembla Steelworks. KJ supplied all the scaffolding labour for the project.
During the building of No.6 Blast Furnace, we participated with BHP Steel in the development and implementation of the Working at Heights policy at the Steelworks. This activity contributed to the high level of safety during the construction period.
In 2009, KJ was again heavily involved in the reline of the No.5 Blast Furnace at the Port Kembla Steelworks. KJ supplied over 2500 tonnes of new scaffolding imported specifically for this project. We also managed the on location yard to hold and issue the equipment for the project. KJ supplied a workforce of nearly 300 personnel to design and build the huge scaffolding structures required for the Blast Furnace reline and Sinter Plant OPUP projects, and we were duly commended by BlueScope Steel for our effort.
KJ has 20 years’ experience in supplying labour and equipment for the total plant maintenance downdays at the Port Kembla Steelworks. KJ personnel participate with BlueScope Steel in the planning and coordination of the downdays to ensure that all scaffolding requirements are organised and supplied as specified and on time.
