Asbestos Removal Tasmania
Historical Tasmanian Hydro Power Station
Waddamana is the site of Hydro Tasmania’s first hydropower station. After a hard life of generating renewable energy, the station was put into retirement. The Waddamana power station now has a new life as a museum filled with original equipment and other displays. Waddamana buildings A and B are substantially intact examples of early 20th century hydro-electric power stations in generally good condition, retaining a high degree of integrity in respect to their construction and equipment
The scope of works was complexed requiring the removal of approximately 3000m2 of asbestos roof, wall cladding and internal linings on a historic building constructed in 1939. A 6-level scaffolding was erected to access the roof for removal with great detail and attention being given during the removal to maintain all areas unaffected by asbestos to ensure the historical value of the premises remains. In addition to the works conditions on site are extreme with cold winter mornings challenging the works progress due to frost and snow.
