German engineering to provide Pluto access

The scaffolding will be supplied through Layher’s local subsidiary, Layher Pty Ltd, and construction is starting immediately. Layher said it would also provide technical advice, engineering support and training. The company said the use of its scaffolding system is expected to provide significant efficiencies for the contractors. A Layher spokesperson told PetroleumNews.net the scaffolding is strong yet lighter than other scaffolding systems, there are fewer components and it is quicker to install and take down. Layher’s scaffolding system is used internationally on major industrial projects in the oil and gas and mining industries as well as for the construction and event industries. Group managing director Georg Layher said the Pluto project had firmly established Layher scaffolding systems as the preferred choice in the Australian oil and gas industry. Pluto is expected to produce first gas in late 2010 and is set to become Australia’s second-largest resources project.
