Skip Retrieval Tool

14 Weeks

Scope of Work

Manufacture, inspect, package and deliver a Skip Retrieval Tool, along with complete Life Time Quality Records. The SRT replaced an existing tool that had been damaged beyond use; the existing tool was situated in an active area, meaning that it could not be removed to be repaired and a new tool was needed.

This was a heavily engineered and complex piece of equipment that required highly skilled and experienced operatives (Platers, Welders, Machinists) supported by strong project management/engineering team to ensure adherence to the build specification and stringent QA requirements. The tool was delivered earlier than planned and commissioned almost immediately, with WCEL receiving reports that the tool was working well and without issue.

WCEL was also praised for going “above and beyond what is normally expected”, with the cooperation between WCEL and the client having “definitely shown benefits for the ease of installation and setting to work”. Due to the success of the job, another four tools were ordered, owing to West Cumberland Engineering’s attitude to high quality work and right-first-time dedication.
