Mechanical Maintenance

In its main headquarters Kluane has a workshop in which maintenance processes are carried out by qualified and certified personnel, with optimal tools for each job and following high safety standards: localized metal fume extractor in the welding zone, extractor fumes in the area that combustion engines are tested and in the painting area there is equipment for the extraction of organic vapors, and by-products of this type of work.
Additionally, Kluane has a maintenance program that is fulfilled both at the headquarters and in the projects. Each maintenance action is registered so that the traceability of the information contained in the performance file of each team allows to review the historical behavior, analyze and make decisions.
At the beginning of each shift the authorized person, with the support of the team, performs a preoperational inspection of the equipment, from which corrective measures are taken. Only minor repairs are allowed in the field. Major mechanical inconveniences, including breakdowns in combustion or hydraulic engines, are resolved by immediate replacement for parts found in the project’s warehouse and the damaged items are sent to Bogotá for repair.
