2018 MERCURY KAWERAU GEOTHERMAL OUTAGE

Hutec Engineering supplied a diverse team of supervisors, site fitters, coded welders and E&I technicians to Mercury during the January 2018 Kawerau Geothermal Power Station shut.

This shut was primarily to replace the turbine rotor and complete critical equipment overhauls in the STG area, and was the longest outage in the station’s history with Hutec operating a 21 day, 24/7, five man shift on the Hot Well Pumps as well as 10hr day shifts on the outside mechanical work and E&I work packages (inside and outside).

Hutec successfully completed a total of 9593.5 man hours during preshut, shut and post shut phases, with 0 LTI’s, 0 MTI’s, 1 first aid treatment and 9 near misses reported.
