    Melbourne Tram Refurbishment Gets a SafeSmart Lift

    The world’s biggest urban tram network is in Melbourne, Australia, with a sum total of 250km of track, closely followed by Moscow, with 208km.

    In the Victorian capital, approximately 493 trams are on the network at any given peak time, on a timetable that spans most of the 24-hour time cycle. This constant use of course demands a rigorous schedule for maintenance and cleaning.

    Keolis Downer commissioned Australian custom work platform supplier SafeSmart Access to measure-up and design a system that would provide safe, edge-protected access for multiple people, with room to place tools and walk around without constantly descending and reascending.

    To operate these turbines on this Sydney freeway tunnel project, external factors needed to be considered. Firstly, they are noisy when running, and the surrounding environment needed protecting against noise pollution. And the turbines themselves needed protecting; any abnormal or skewed airflow from naturally-occurring breezes can affect the performance of the units. To control these factors, the contractor commissioned Sydney-based height access and scaffolding supplier SafeSmart Access to come up with a solution.

    Yancoal Gain Safe and Smart Access to Plant Equipment
