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.monzonasiapacific.com.
