Com­pa­nies Gear­ing Up

PEO­PLE have al­ways found them­selves in a quandary about this is­sue. An­gry ar­gu­ments en­sue. Who’s right and who’s wrong? What if they both were right and af­ter decades of in­de­ci­sion whether to utilise ei­ther tube and clip or sys­tem scaf­fold­ing? Now there is a prod­uct that keeps ev­ery­one happy. MON­ZON Asia Pa­cific (MAP) is proudly to in­tro­duc­ing to the mar­ket its Mon­zon NO LIMIT® - a new con­cept in the scaf­fold­ing in­dus­try. NO LIMIT® in both alu­minium and steel was de­vel­oped as a re­sult of many years of re­search by Swedish man­u­fac­turer Mon­zon and an Aus­tralian scaf­fold end-user with vast ex­pe­ri­ence in all ap­pli­ca­tions of scaf­fold ac­cess sys­tems. They col­lab­o­rated with main con­trac­tors, scaf­fold­ers and end-users from all around the world, in all facets of the con­struc­tion, oil, gas, (down­stream, mid­stream, up­stream) re­me­dial and pro­tec­tive coat­ings, coal, nu­clear, wind, so­lar, elec­tric­ity, marine, avi­a­tion, ce­ment plants, gov­ern­ment and in­fra­struc­ture sec­tors for shut­downs and main­te­nance glob­ally. MAP did this in or­der to find out the prob­lem ar­eas that needed to be solved, as well as its clients’ re­quire­ments for a scaf­fold­ing sys­tem for the fu­ture. The re­quire­ments were clear – they all wanted the same thing, one sys­tem that could be built faster, one sys­tem that is flex­i­ble as tube and cou­pler, and at the same time is as easy to as­sem­ble as sys­tem scaf­fold; as well as be cost ef­fec­tive when it comes to stor­age and trans­port. The sys­tem should be light and strong to im­prove er­gonomic and en­vi­ron­men­tal as­pects with no com­pro­mises on safety. The NO LIMIT® con­cept ad­dresses these is­sues and more. The sys­tem is light and strong, to im­prove er­gonomic and en­vi­ron­men­tal as­pects with no com­pro­mises on safety, and cost-ef­fec­tive when it comes to stor­age and trans­port. MAP has also in­tro­duced its Build­ing In­for­ma­tion Mod­el­ling (BIM) for shut­downs and main­te­nance to the Aus­tralian mar­ket. BIM is a dig­i­tal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of phys­i­cal and func­tional char­ac­ter­is­tics of a fa­cil­ity or plant. It can bridge the in­for­ma­tion loss as­so­ci­ated with han­dling a project through de­sign, con­struc­tion, main­te­nance and shut­down. This is done by al­low­ing each group to add and ref­er­ence all in­for­ma­tion they ac­quire dur­ing their pe­riod of con­tri­bu­tion to the BIM model. The model pro­vides the spe­cific scaf­fold or ac­cess type, man­u­fac­turer, part num­ber and any other in­for­ma­tion ever re­searched in the past, and only needs to be mod­i­fied when ad­di­tional plant is in­stalled. MAP so­lu­tions pro­vide real-time an­a­lyt­ics of shut­downs, in­stan­ta­neous out­age plan­ning ex­e­cu­tion readi­ness, pro­duc­tiv­ity ra­tios met­rics, man hours, ex­pen­di­ture, emerg­ing work, which work types / trades are ahead or be­hind pro­gram, and mea­sures cur­rent main­te­nance per­for­mance against com­pany bench­marks. MAP has an ex­pe­ri­enced team with the ca­pa­bil­ity to as­sist in shut­down ex­e­cu­tion by al­low­ing main­te­nance plan­ners to “vir­tu­ally” ex­e­cute the shut through the 3D model prior to ac­tual ex­e­cu­tion. This mit­i­gates work-front and re­source clashes, iden­ti­fies work or­ders that are in­com­plete, as well as eval­u­ates spares, re­sources, per­mits, sup­port and equip­ment avail­abil­ity work or­der com­po­nents at a gran­u­lar level. What this all means to clients is more speed, ef­fi­ciency, safety and profit. More in­for­ma­tion can be found at: www.mon­zonasi­a­pa­
