Mackay Sugar

Boiler Control Formal Compliance Audit

During May 2016 the Mackay Sugar Marion Mill No 1 boiler experienced a furnace explosion. Mackay Sugar notified the statutory authorities, undertook a full incidence analysis and instituted recovery repairs to reduce impact on the 2016 crushing season. Mackay Sugar engaged Mipac to undertake a formal control system and control elements compliance audit of both No. 1 & No. 3 boilers to ensure they met Australian Standards and best practice. Mipac assembled a team of senior qualified engineers and a boiler expert that undertook an engineering review against standards and best practice, a formal CHAZOP(Control Systems HAZard and Operability review) and documented findings and recommendations.
