Thursday Jan 14th, 2016 saw a severe storm lash Sydney resulting in widespread building damage, trees & power lines being brought down and resultant widespread power outages. Atlas Copco Speciality rental, Sydney branch, received a call at 4.30pm requesting a 1000kva+ Generator to be deployed asap to get production back on line at Joyce Foam Products. Arriving at 9.30pm the plant was back on line at 1.00am ensuring Joyce Foam products could maintain their impressive on time delivery record. Despite ongoing heavy rain and 50 meters of cable being required to be laid out, the install was carried out without incident. The Atlas Copco QAS 1000 remained at site for 7 days ensuring production was maintained while the power supply was reinstated.
Thanks to Atlas Copco Speciality Rental being able to respond quickly with the 1000 kva Generator we were able to successfully maintain production at our Moorebank Plant during a challenging period.
