On-site manufacture of Stilcor CSP culverts
The benefits of the on-site manufacture of Stilcor CSP culverts, for larger projects, are significant. Transportation costs are reduced substantially, longer lengths can be manufactured, thereby reducing installation costs, and last-minute design changes can be quickly accommodated.
Quite simply, Roundel is the only manufacturer with substantial on-site manufacturing experience. Our on-site experience goes back decades, but we introduced our state-of-the-art mobile pipe mills into Australia in 2010. Since then we have manufactured over 14,000 tonnes of steel culverts in remote areas, such as the Pilbara in Western Australia and Weipa, in northern Queensland.
Our mills, and our on-site operating procedures, have been independently assessed by industry experts and we are fully approved by all major mining companies, and civil contractors. The mills have been independently certified as being fully compliant with the Mines Safety and Inspection Regulations 1995 Act – the only CSP manufacturer to do so.
Our commitment to the health and safety of our personnel is of paramount importance and demonstrated by zero serious incidents throughout the years of our site operations. Our experienced manufacturing teams are all certified for competency, are subject to regular medical checks, and are fully conversant with site induction requirements. Our on-site manufacture QA is the same as that implemented in the factories: with fully traceable QA records for materials and manufacturing operations.
