“While Mike managed the Maintenance Department at Coogee Chemicals he continually introduced and led new initiatives to improve plant uptime. Such successes as the preventative maintenance of bearings that reduced failures from 4 per month to 4 per year on bulk materials handling equipment. He introduced maintenance planning and scheduling and root cause analysis of asset failures into the company. He championed the use of shaft laser alignment and made sure the tradesmen were trained in its use. That initiative, combined with him training the plant operators in the proper use of pumps, saw mechanical seal failures drop from 20 per year to 3 per year. He worked enthusiastically with the maintenance crew to improve production equipment designs that boosted plant availability. In the fertiliser plant reliability rose from 85% to 98% and made the operation profitable. In pastillation availability went up from 80% to 95% in six months under Mike’s stewardship.”
– Geoff Nott, Maintenance Workshop Supervisor, Coogee Chemicals
