VERTON - SHAFT EXCAVATION

Cross River Rail integrates Verton’s SpinPods during spoil removal and haulage during shaft excavation.

 
Cross River Rail is committed to improving safety and productivity during construction. Both qualities are on display in their impressive construction management on-site in Brisbane, Australia. Not only have they increased cycle times mucking out during their 24-hour operations, but they also keep workers clear from the drop zone by using Verton’s remote-controlled load orientation equipment.  

Cross River Rail is a new 10.2 kilometre rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, which includes 5.9 kilometres of twin tunnels under the Brisbane River and CBD. The project will unlock a bottleneck at the core of our transport network and it will transform the way we travel across the whole of South East Queensland. To ensure continued safety and efficiency during construction, Verton is working with Cross River Rail Joint Venture to provide load orientation technology. 

Verton is proud to be continuing our successful relationship with Cross River Rail by providing them with our latest innovation in remote-controlled load orientation.  

Verton’s SpinPod controls and orientates the spoil container as its being lifted up and down the shaft and between the wall props. 

The same SpinPod assists with loading and unloading the spoil containers onto trucks to be removed from the site.

VERTON ELIMINATES TAGLINES FOR FASTER CYCLE TIMES:   

  • Reduce manual handling 
  • Better load positioning 
  • Increase lift cycle times with repeatable lifts 
  • Superior control and load orientation 
  • Set the load orientation. 

REDUCED LOST-TIME INJURY (LTI’S) 

  • Reduce the number of lost-time injuries 
  • Eliminate tag lines and provide control and load orientation of the spoil containers for the entire lift 
  • Reduce risk in confined space situations and keep your workers clear of the drop zone. 

MITIGATE RISK AND HAVE SUPERIOR CONTROL 

  • Improve QHSE throughout the lift cycle 
  • Safely control loads up and down shafts and between the wall props 
  • Reduce accidents and structural damage. 

 HOLD FUNCTION 

  • Position HOLD FUNCTION keeps the load stable automatically in the pre-set orientation, despite wind or slewing impacts on the load. 

BATTERY SWAP FOR 24/7 OPERATIONS 

  • Manage your 24-hour processes with swappable batteries for continuous operation.
