Onsite Engineering

Industrial Installations, Sitework & Shut-downs

Industrial installation, sitework and shut-downs can be carried out over extensive periods of time and effective communication is paramount throughout the project.

We believe the planning stages of sitework and plant shut-downs are crucial to the success of a project.

HSF Australia has extensive experience in shut-down and sitework and can manage the entire process as well as provide an experienced labour force.

HSF Australia have worked successfully in the field; from the harsh conditions of the Australian outback through to the challenging cultural conditions of Papua New Guinea and Mexico.

HSF’s experienced team includes boilermakers, coded welders, riggers, dogmen, crane operators and trades assistants.
