Dargaville New Zealand
Have you ever visited the fantastic Kauri Museum in Matakohe
near Dargaville. They have several old Teltherm gauges in working condition on the old machinery there.
Engineers installed two fuel farms, one to fuel the private planes the other to fuel huge generators. A private airstrip of 4km long was constructed to cargo in modular sections for a gas extraction plant that was built for ExxonMobil.
A large diesel facility was also built to fuel the airfields generators.
All staff arrive and depart by site based choppers, as there is no road between Port Moresby and the site. The actual Airfield is 2 km away from the construction site (sounds close but it takes 20 minutes to get there by 4WD due to jungle roads, these are clay based and often wash away). It rains (tropical heavy rain like you have never seen) for half of each day, so its muddy, humid and hot, day in day out.
Malaria is rampant and snakes everywhere. Tribal wars are raging daily, as its one of the most violent regions in PNG. Thanks to Howard who told us about this project and the Teltherm gauges that are in the middle of the jungle.
We were gobsmacked when we got an enquiry from Lame Dairy in Addis Ababa
to replace this temperature gauge.
Talk about value for money that gauge is in excess of 35 years old.
Greg sent this image showing the previous site of the Canterbury Clothing Company which was destroyed by the 2011 earthquakes. All that remains are a Teltherm Model 3400 pressure gauge and an old Homershams gauge on a large pipe.
Keith the ‘pipe supervisor’ pictured by Teltherm supplied PLC’c which monitor pressure, temperature and level at their plant in Tuakau, New Zealand.
