Cleaning fly ash silo

Another ash silo but a new client. A 40 meter high concrete silo needs to be emptied to have repairs done to the concrete walls from the inside. The silo only has 1 entrance at the top. Rope Access Group was asked to first empty the silo and afterwards supervise repair personnel and act as standby rescue team.

Because of the severely dusty surrounding inside, height and confined space we choose to only have 1 man inside; Always! attached to our battery-operated winch at the top and of course with backup system. This makes a fast escape possible in case of an emergency and is more comfortable for the man inside to get out this 40 mtr. hole.

After cleaning the repairing company was guided in and out of the silo by Rope Access Group.
