JLE was contracted to provide electrical hazardous area expertise for the construction of eleven drilling rig mud tanks built in China but destined for the High Arctic in PNG. JLE carried out the initial electrical design verification in NZ and then mobilized hazardous area EAEA electricians and inspectors to undertake manufacturing surveillance and hazardous area dossier preparation at Hebei’s factory in China to ensure hazardous area electrical compliance.
The tanks were 9-tonne heli lift capable which on arrival in PNG were shipped up by river to the western province of PNG and then heavy-lift helicoptered to site.
