The Verbrec Asset Management team has recently been awarded Asset Life Cycle Replacement Plans by Australia’s largest food processing company in Townsville.
The original facility was built in Townsville in the early 1950’s and then relocated in the early 1960’s to its current location due to flooding. Much of the equipment and infrastructure is now at the end of its useful life. The work will cover all equipment and infrastructure at the facility.
The project will be executed over two major phases and will deliver:
- An asset register of all major assets on the site
- Process flow diagrams and asset hierarchy
- A breakdown of the major components by asset
- A condition assessment for each asset
- The recommended maintenance strategy for each unit
- Equipment grouping by Asset Class
- 10YR Asset life-cycle replacement plans each group
Verbrec Asset Management General Manager, Dominic Wood said this is our first engagement with this client and supports Verbrec Asset Management’s industry diversification initiative.
“This opportunity gives Verbrec Asset Management the ability to diversify and establish itself as a leading service provider in this growing industry. The potential for growth in this sector is significant, with the client alone operating 75 assets across Australia.”
The project will provide the client with a 10-year replacement plan for equipment and infrastructure on the site that will allow them to budget and plan major capital expenditure on site.
In addition, the site will have a structured asset register to use in the future development of maintenance strategies for the asset.
