Air Radiators Replaces H-Series Panels for Thursday Island Power Unit

Air Radiators was tasked with replacing the H-Series panels that the company made in 2001 for the power station on Thursday Island.

The team had to replace pin fin, and the HT and LT panels because the original components had corroded due to the highly corrosive, coastal environment.

The process took 28.5 working hours and involved redesigning the product, procuring components, as well as making the pin fin tubes, welding the steelwork, painting, assembling and packing.

Pin fin tubes were painted with the Urethane ‘Copon Blue’ coating system to protect the tubes from corrosion from the salt-laden air in its the coastal application.

The unit was also redesigned to be all stainless steel to further improve the protection against corrosion.

It is set to be transported by road to Cairns before heading by barge to Thursday Island.
