The scope of the Vales Point project was Tower Refurbishment on the Vales Point to Lake Munmorah 33kv Transmission Line for Transgrid.

This project involved the assessment of 11 Transmission Towers and then doing Bolt replacements, surface preparation and paint application to refurbish those towers.

Due to the nature of tower refurbishment there was a lot of consideration put into the protection of the surrounding environment from lingering spray from the blasting unit. We looked at the weather conditions multiple times daily, changed our blasting units to the Torbo brand and worked with the most environmentally friendly products for the blasting and painting of towers making sure to use water based environmental controls.
