Abseil Access Ltd were contracted to remediate a 110-year-old, 16 Meter high, cast iron lighthouse located in Kahurangi National Park. The site was challenging with no onsite water, power, accommodation, communication, or road access. This meant establishing the site required transportation of 16 tons of equipment by helicopter. The project required removal and containment of the original lead-based paint. The bare cast iron was then garnet blasted to SA2 before six coats of Resene epoxy paint were applied. The eight-person team completed the project within the designated seven weeks.


Abseil Access Ltd were contracted to inspect the 4 cement storage silos, 3 chimneys and 5 water storage silos using rope access and specialist access systems. The chimneys are 50m and the silos up to 40m high. Spall sites were marked, measured, and recorded. Serious concrete deterioration at the top of two of the chimneys resulted in removal of 15m of concrete and brick lining. This required installing a temporary upper platform, scaffold and crane lifting operations. The inspection of cement and water storage silos was followed with a full repair programme for all spall sites.
