Modern Workshop for Maintenance Focus
The recently completed modern maintenance workshop at the Shoalhaven Starches site has become a central hub for coordinating maintenance strategies and is home to our top mechanical maintenance team.
Shoalhaven Starches Maintenance Manager, Daniel O’Dempsey leads the team of 70 workers. “Our team
is responsible for the maintenance of equipment and infrastructure – at times world-first – across the site, from mechanical repairs, scheduled plant asset overhauls, fabrication to machining”.
“The sophisticated workshop is equipped with brand- new machines, equipment and tools, which increases our departments flexibility, enhances efficiencies, and boosts productivity by repairing more work inhouse,” he said.
The maintenance department has also been bolstered with an additional overhead crane, ensuring safer handling of equipment and efficient overhauls for the team. Capital works for phase two of the project are expected to commence in early 2023, which include offices and meeting rooms.
