ASPEC’s port and mine infrastructure works include investigations, brownfield improvement and retrofit projects.
Find out about the legislative requirements and key reference standards for asset management.
A recommended framework for machine inspections and audits has been developed by ASPEC.
Most sites have inspection practices that have evolved over time, and it is rare that the subject is approached holistically. Inspection methodologies should be developed as a control against specific risks.
Four key areas have been identified as being critical to achieving the objectives of the machine asset management programme, and compliance with legislative requirements.
Understanding the behavior of structural and mechanical systems through physical measurement and analysis allows ASPEC to provide meaningful advice and/or develop retrofit and repair schemes that are consistent with the owner’s objectives.
Steel corrosion is a major issue for mining and public infrastructure worldwide.
