This week’s news is brought to you by Steve (Kiwi) E, on behalf of the infrastructure team.
The new CUB (Casey utility building) is being constructed this season. This building will house the new waste water treatment plant, new cool rooms and freezers, the gymnasium, spa and sauna, and more storage. The concrete foundations are in and the carpenters, Danny and Mark, are drilling the concrete and fixing in the steel beam foundation bolts. Meanwhile the rest of the team, Kenny, Mike, Tom, and Dean, are unpacking the structural steel work and getting it ready for erection.
The plant operators, Glenn, Simon, Steve, and rigger Tim, are also in full swing removing a redundant fuel tank. The tank had to be emptied of fuel, all pipe openings plugged, and the tank lifted out of the concrete bunding (protective enclosure) ready to be returned to Australia by ship.
