Utilizing Rope Access at Shell Scotford

The Chemco Rope Access (RA) concept is simple in theory; provide a safe, innovative, and cost effective option for working at heights.

Chemco has partnered with Pacific Ropes, a like-minded company, who’s experienced team of IRATA certified employees have extensive experience in the Rope Access (RA) industry and provide training to Chemco employees and work closely to perform RA activities.

Using Chemco RA at Shell Scotford was a collaboration incited by supervision and management of both companies as part of the Continuous Improvement Plan. Our shared goal is to develop a culture of value improvement and become an active participant in identifying and realizing opportunities that proactively focusses on Shell business needs. Prioritizing and optimizing activities allow us to achieve desired safety and quality improvements.

Using rope access eliminates many hours required to isolate systems at height and reduces unproductive time by moving electricians in and out of the RA work scope as the schedule permits.  The result to Shell is increased efficiency along with major cost savings through the reduction of scaffold and labour costs.

With over a dozen employees on site already trained and IRATA L1 certified, and with more scheduled for upcoming training both Shell and Chemco are realizing the immediate benefit of this collaborative, innovative approach.

Chemco Helps Keep Alberta Moving

Now safely on site, Chemco is proud to have been a part of the team that helped get it there. Chemco worked with Dacro, IPPL, Epcor, and Telus to remove and re-locate electrical services, phone lines, and fiber lines for businesses along 51 Avenue in Edmonton to facilitate the transport of the IPPL splitter.  This was the heaviest transport project in the history of the province.  The splitter is 820-tonnes and  96-metres long.

A quote from the IPPL representative that Chemco worked with: “The splitter and crew have arrived safely at site. Chemco should be proud, as your team played a huge role in the success of this historic move.”
