COREGAS PIPELINE BRINGS ELIZABETH TO LIFE

Australian industrial gas manufacturer Coregas has completed installation of a new reticulated gas pipeline system in South Australia.

The project, one of the largest in Coregas’s history, was installed and commissioned on behalf of structural steel fabricator Genis Steel in their new Adelaide fabrication facility.

Genis Steel recently opened the facility at the Lionsgate Business Park in Elizabeth South. The large facility boasts over 15m clear heights and a 100-tonne lifting capacity, and once housed Holden’s press shops.

The facility’s scale will enable Genis Steel to handle a near-unlimited volume of work.

Genis Steel’s South Australia managing director Vince Manuele says the supply of gas is essential to the fabricator’s operations.

“If we run out of gas, certain areas of production stop. So our gas supply needs to be efficient, dependable and stress-free. For this to happen, our gas supplier must be proactive, easy to deal with, and always prepared to fix my issues,” he says.

“Coregas is.”

Coregas worked closely with Genis Steel to determine the site’s gas requirements and custom-design an efficient, cost-effective reticulation system. The resultant facility includes four 700m reticulated pipelines for argon, oxygen, LPG and air supply, and over 220 regulated outlets.

According Coregas regional sales manager for South Australia Nathan Lindsay, the system will provide Genis Steel with the capacity and performance required, along with their technical capabilities, workmanship and reputation for quality fabrication, to maintain their position at the top of Australia’s steel fabrication industry.

“Without a doubt, the Genis Steel reticulated gas system is one of the most comprehensive and detailed installations in which I’ve ever been involved,” he says.

“Genis steel was very clear on their expectations, and how the system should perform. I took great pleasure in working closely with Vince Manuele and the entire Genis Steel team to ensure we not only delivered, but exceeded all expectations.”

Coregas formulates and constantly updates its shielding and cutting gases to help fabricators maintain their competitive edge within the Australian fabrication and welding industry. The bespoke Genis Steel site features quality gas control equipment from Harris Products Group.

The Lionsgate reticulated pipeline also incorporates Coregas’s smart metering technology that will ensure Genis Steel can access critical level alerts and automatically replenish stock levels.

“The system has been set up so it advises us automatically when banks of gas bottles are nearing empty,” Manuele says.

“This removes some of the stress, and eradicates productivity problems associated with running out of gas. It makes the process simple.”

Manuele says Coregas and Lindsay went out of their way to meet Genis Steel’s needs.

“Nathan understands the concept of good, strong customer service, and drives this continuously. He understands that I need him to make sure our gas supply is seamless.”
