Lyk my hulle vra jou of jy kan berg klim voor jy die job kry?!! ;) :lol8:

Nogals ja..

Rope Access vorm 'n integrale deel van wat ons deesdae doen. Van die manne op die toue se ambagte is indrukwekkend, gekwalifiseerde riggers, elektrisiens, meganiese tegnikuste, welders & hidroliese tegnikuste. Dit maak baie vinnige, dinamiese en veilige opsies oop as mens ervare manne op toue het as deel van jou span.

Rooi Wolf, dit is bitter interessant.

Het jy n foto of diagram van hoe die "subsea assets" lyk? Die wellpoint - in my leketaal.
Het die well n deksel op? Indien wel, hoe lyk dit? Hoe koppel julle die pype?

Kom die olie en gas met natuurlik druk boontoe, of pomp julle dit? En as julle water in die gat afstoot, meng die water en die olie nie?

Dom vrae, ek weet. Maar dit is vir my werklik fassinerend. My dayjob(s) is nie naaaaaastenby so indrukwekkend nie.

Gooi, ek luister en kyk.

And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this thy hand grenade, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."

It used to only be an assembly plant but was expanded last year to manufacturing for the Euro and North American markets. Its was always cheaper to manufacture in SA and export but with the increases cost of doing business in SA things are changing around. Thank you BEE, Eskom and Trade Unions. We can already build some trucks cheaper over there and just import to SA. Another issue is the deterioration of skills and quality of local supplier products.

It is sad, but we need to compete with Volvo and Cat, on quality and price.

It's sad. Bell is one of SA's real success stories.

Gooi, ek luister en kyk.

Ek is betrokke by die konstruksie fase en nie rerig as die bedrywe eers begin loop en operate nie. Maar in die tyd wat ek wel aanboord spandeer het, het ek 'n basiese begrip van hoe die legkaart inmekaar pas.

The FPSO receives the production fluids from subsea oil reservoirs via the production risers. These risers run on about 265 Bar pressure. The product is separated on deck with some alchemy and mechanical aid into oil, gas, and water.

The oil is offloaded to an oil tanker once her belly is full. Each FPSO has got different production and storage capacity, but the bigger ones can produce up to 350 000 barrels per day.

The produced gas is reinjected into the well (makes the oil more buoyant for export), exported for use, combusted or used in the Turbines onboard to generate power. The FPSO I'm on currently in Angola has 2 x Turbines, each with 21 mega watt capacity.

Water injection into the well is to maintail well pressure. This pressure is what ultimately pushes product up the riser to the FPSO.

To make all of this happen safely takes a highly qualified and experienced team of engineers and operators.

@chicco if I may ask, what do you do at Bell?? 
I worked for barlows for 18 years and I can tell your their quality and price for their articulated dump trucks are going down the drain... Countless problems with differentials and transmission failures.  Then gets stripped and repaired under warranty and not lasting at all.

Cat know's that they have a problem word wide but they can not fix it.  At one stage they had a shit load of ADT's in the market standing due to no parts available or the manpower to repair them.

Ek wens Bell wil begin trekkers vervaardig vir die landbou mark. Ek weet hul doen alreeds vir die bosbou mark.
Dit behoort goed dit doen in SA en Afrika vir n start ek is baie seker daarvan.
As die prys en betroubaarheid reg is sal die boere hul koop.

Chris dink jy nie dit gaan maar bietjie sukkel nie jong??  Die boere, of altans baie van hulle lewe mos net vir die john deere.  Baie van die bell masjiene word mos as n “Deere” gebrand in europe en Usa.

Baie doen en Bell gebruik John Deere enjins so hulle is halfpad daar!! ;) :lol8:
Bell kan gerys n trekker bou vir Afrika, John Deere, Cummins of CAT enjin met minder rekenaars asseblief. Meeste boere wat ek ken kla maar oor hedendaagse trekkers wat die mechanic opdaag met n laptop om hom te fix.

Chris, we have the Dezzi equipment locally (https://www.dezzi.co.za/product_types/rigid-hauler-tractors/). Started by Des Gutzeit.

I see some of the tractors have JCB engines.

We had an agreement with John Deere but it is coming to an end soon. We don't use the Deere engines in our ADT's, We use MTU on the ADT, Yanmar on the 3 wheelers and John Deere on the Tractors. We build haulage tractors and not agricultural tractors.Our Powerheads can be used to pull anything, from plows to big boats.
