To whom it may concern,
Newgen Power Kwinana is a 327MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine power station located in the
southern suburbs of Perth Western Australia. We supply approximately 10% of the electricity supply to the electrical distribution network for the state of Western Australia.
We have worked with JB Scaffolding Pty Ltd for over 6 years and in Nov/Dec 2017 during our annual planned shutdown they were engaged to conduct scaffold operations site wide. Their works involved 111 scaffolding erections and numerous modifications during the outage maintenance period.
The areas of plant included sensitive and delicate areas such as the Gas Turbine and Steam Turbine along with other areas such as Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) Feedwater and the remaining Balance of Plant.
From the initial phone call and discussions with John Buckley, then the numerous outage planning phone calls, meetings and site visits and then the maintenance outage period, I found JB Scaffold to be an extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous company to work with.
The team arrived onsite for fully prepared for the outage preparation work and site setup 3 weeks
prior to the outage start date as requested. All pre-work scaffolds that were required were erected exactly as planned and scheduled.
During the 14 day outage period JB scaffold staff provided excellent service to the NewGen
requirements for both day and night shifts. This included all additional emergent works.
During start up and recommissioning they were available for support in case of any plant or corrective works.
JB Scaffolding met and exceeded all goals and targets required of them in a very professional and safe manner.
JB Scaffolding conducted all Pre/Post and Outage works with a perfect safety record, on time with
zero rework and within budget. They were very proactive in the onsite safety systems which was
demonstrated with the onsite supervisor attending every site safety meeting and additional voluntary
participation in site safety walk rounds and inspections.
This was further demonstrated with JB Scaffolding being awarded Two (2) out of the Six (6) safety awards presented during the outage for their proactive identification and rectification of hazards and their safe working practises during the outage.
Based on my experience, I would highly recommend JB Scaffolding for any scaffolding works in the
power generation industry. I look forward to working with them again for future maintenance and outage periods.
I have completed numerous difficult scaffold installations on my projects with the help of JB scaffolding. I’ve found them easy to deal with, WHS conscious, effective problem solvers, and fairly priced in their field. I would not hesitate in recommending JB scaffolding to others.
JB Scaffolding has sub contracted to GCS Integrated Services invaluable labour and transport services for some years in an efficient, friendly and professional manner and we would recommend them to anyone in need of a quality provider.
We have found John Buckley to be a person of sound character, who is highly competent, with a wide and varied skilled set in various forms of scaffolding and one who is a problem solver and thinks outside the square.
