Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies has presented Slot-Nankai, a supplier and fabricator of pressure vessels and modules, an award for safety practices during the fabrication of a key project. Slot-Nankai achieved more than 100,000 man-hours without an accident for a project in the Australian mining industry which will use Veolia’s HPD evaporation and crystallization technology to process mine water inventory. The award also recognised the outstanding fabrication effort demonstrated by Slot-Nankai due to the complexity of the work specific to this project. The entire system is modularised with all utilities, cabling, access steel and piping in order to ship into Australia as complete as possible. This is due to the remote location of the job site and the need to minimise the field installation effort. “This is a testament to the Veolia project team’s focus on safety and efforts to raise the awareness of safe work practices among our fabricators all around the world,” remarked Veolia Project Manager, Bob Patchak, “The module shop and their three main subcontractors for piping, electrical, and insulation work have just reached the 100,000 man-hour milestone without any accidents and will remain committed to the same level of safety practices as they complete the project.”The majority of the equipment fabrication and construction for this project is being performed in Thailand. All vessels and modules will be completed and shipped to the job site in Australia in the fourth quarter of 2012.Slot-Nankai is a supplier of quality mechanical design and fabrication of heat exchangers, reactors, pressure vessels, and piping. It also provides engineering services and construction of chemical facilities including detailed engineering, manufacturing and installation.The products have been supplied to domestic and overseas industries with high technical know-how and high quality adherence to JIS, ASTM, API, TEMA, and ASME codes.
