Rhenus Lupprians Installation Teams have considerable experience of the full range of installation and de-installation activities:
The equipment, which is worth in excess of £1M, demands highly technical crews. The manufacturer, Varian, champions Rhenus Lupprians with all its system deliveries and installations.
Rhenus Lupprians Project Management supports Varian with site meetings and complete detailed delivery surveys. From these, method statements and risk assessments are produced and supplied for customer agreement and signoff.
The actual installation begins on site with a ‘tool-box talk'. This consists of the Rhenus Lupprians lead hand talking through the delivery route and system installation in detail, according to the agreed method statement. These systems require a technical crew of four Rhenus Lupprians riggers for the physical delivery and assembly of the system over a two day period and a further two Rhenus Lupprians Technicians for a further seven days to complete the technical installation before handover to the Varian engineer for final calibration. Throughout the project, the customer is able to view progress on Rhenus Lupprians Interactive.
At Glan Clwyd District General Hospital, with the groundwork carefully laid, the Rhenus Lupprians specialists were able to use the Rhenus Lupprians infrastructure to ensure that the delivery, rigging and extended rigging was completed without problems or delay.
