Shutdown team services Newcrest Lihir in PNG

Technicians from Philippines and Australia join forces to complete Newcrest Lihir shutdown.

Callidus technicians from the Philippines and Australia teamed up in PNG to complete the Newcrest Lihir AC4, AC2 and Oxygen Plant shutdown between August and October.

The work from the team included:

  • PSV overhauls & recertifications
  • Rexa hydraulic power unit servicing
  • Control valve rebuilds & testing and oxygen service cleaning
  • Scope planning for future shutdowns

The team faced many challenges including pre and post isolation requirements due to Covid-19 and working away from home for long periods in a remote overseas location.

The positive feedback received from the client proved once again that this Callidus shutdown team continues to provide consistent client support, whilst maintain a high safety focus at all times amid working in a very difficult environment.
