Ichthys LNG Plant (JKC / Inpex)


Darwin has one of the highest lightning activities in Australia, LPI was engaged to deal with all aspects of lightning risk and mitigation.

The Brief

Consulting work covered three key aspects, namely: (i) Lightning protection design for the whole LNG plant, (ii) Lightning risk studies for dealing with the movement of thousands of site personnel each day during construction and during the operational phase of the plant, and (iii) Verification and validation of the final lightning protection installations.

The Outcome

The work delivered all of the outcomes above and the site is now fully protected and approaching the operational phase.  Study (ii) also helped to ensure the best balance between worker safety and efficiency was maintained, preventing unnecessary labour costs and delays to construction work.
