Description

A Masterclass and Common Interest Work Group presented by SIRF Roundtables VICTAS.

Attendance is free for people from member companies of SIRF Roundtables in Victoria and Tasmania.

Hosted by: Energy Australia Yallourn Power Station

Energy Australia


Hydraulics and hydraulic systems and controls are quite key to many operations. However with their growing complexity and the gradual loss of onsite knowledge many operations are facing a knowledge gap in understanding these systems to adequately maintain, monitor their condition, do fault finding and diagnosis and further improve their reliability.


hydraulics


Energy Australia understand its importance, its something they take very seriously and are kindly hosting this masterclass, where we will have an industry expert lead us through on the key and important aspects.

The Masterclass combined with the Common Interest Work Group will provide opportunity to learn more on the topic from a recognised subject matter expert and share knowledge and experiences with others in industry.

About our Masterclass presenter

Presenting this Masterclass we will have Shane Bartlett from Hydeng sharing his knowledge and expertise on Hydraulics.

Hydeng

"Shane as Director of Hydeng, has some 34 years of knowldege and expertise in Hydraulics. He started out with a major Hydraulic importer named Hyquip in Moorabbin, Victoria, moving quickly into Design & Application both internally and externally.

From Hyquip, Shane moved to Denison Hydraulics as the tri state manager for Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. Denison was a major international company that had just separated from their joint business with Hagglunds. Bigger company meant bigger products and bigger projects, including very large press applications, Sea Cat steerage systems, Gas & Oil applications. 3 years later saw Shane take a very attractive offer to move to Rexroth, the largest hydraulic company in the world.

At Rexroth, Shane was like a kid in a candy shop with the range of products available letting him take on some of the most technically challenging projects in Australia. Rexroth continued his education, particularly in the heavy industry and how to design and apply the best possible safety systems that met all international and Australian standards. Covering all facets of design, application, maintaining and monitoring the most complex systems seen.

16 years ago, Shane and his wife took the opportunity to become partners in a small hydraulic company, right here in Gippsland called Hydeng. Hydeng was already a distributor for Rexroth, now Bosch Rexroth that allowed him to bring a wealth of knowledge with him. Their little Gippsland hydraulic company took on extremely large projects all around Australia in many industries including timber, engineering, materials handling, power gen etc. including a world first application of regenerative materials handling systems where we converted what would have been a 300 kw energy loss into heat every 4 minutes into an electrical regeneration back into the grid with the smallest possible heat loss.

Hydeng Pty Ltd is now one of the largest hydraulic companies in Victoria based on staff number and turnover, and continue to take on jobs far too complex for their competitors."
