JT Day’s 50th anniversary

is to be marked in grand

style with the opening

of our new $5 million office

and warehouse complex in


The new 6,000 sq metre building,

more than double the size of

our existing premises, has been

custom designed to meet our

needs of having office space and

a large storage area for cable and

other items of equipment.

We currently handle over 2,500

specialist product lines. A building

specifically designed to accommodate these

items has been sorely needed for a long time.

The specifications of the building is such

that the IT installation is being undertaken

by a specialist crew coming from the UK to

undertake the work.

The opening of the new premises will be

performed by the Mayor of Wanneroo, Tracey

Roberts, JP.

Opening of our new premises heralds

the start of our second half century

It’s on again – we’ll

be there for sure

The event is to be attended by Mr Donnie

MacLean, Managing Director of the MacLean

Electrical Group of which JT Day is the

Australian division.

There will also be a number of principals of

the international suppliers to the oil and gas

industry that we represent.

Most importantly we’ll also be inviting

representatives of our clients and vendors

to the event. Hopefully our clients will get

the opportunity to meet with these principals

and representatives most of whom represent

some of the most significant suppliers to the

oil and gas industry in the world.

The event will be somewhat timely – just

ahead of the Australian Oil and Gas

Exhibition and Conference, an event of

interest to the visiting industry principals.

22-24 February 2012



The Australian Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference will

be held February 22-24 at the Perth Exhibition Centre.

J.T. Day’s award winning stand (M5) will feature a range of

new equipment with people on hand to explain it.

Among the new products to be displayed will be Chalmit’s

LED Protecta light, Weidmuller’s new power supply gear - TB

junction boxes, relays and other items, plus Orga Offshore’s

navigation lighting and Oglaend System’s FRP products.

Our principals will also be in attendance in the hope of

meeting our customers.

THE JT Day Melbourne and Perth based project teams have

successfully worked on a project to supply fire and gas

detection equipment, along with instrument and electrical

equipment for the Sakhalin-1 Project – Chayvo (Phase 2) operated

by Exxon Neftegas on the island of Sakhalin in the waters off


The Chayvo Phase 2 project, an expanded development of Chayvo

natural gas resources involves drilling additional gas wells and the

expansion of existing onshore and offshore facilities.

Operators are hoping to develop the operation there to be able to

withstand the extreme arctic like conditions so that it can

be operated continuously.

The orders included Chalmit hazardous area lighting,

Hawke International hazardous area 316SS and GRP

junction boxes plus the Oglaend System 316SS cable

ladder, and accessories.

Specifications required the electrical and instrumentation

equipment to be able to withstand Sakhalin’s near arctic

New partnership with

Orga Offshore to supply

helideck lighting

If a low maintenance, robust helideck

lighting system that meets the latest

in regulation standards is what you

need – we have the perfect solution.

These outstanding lighting systems come

from Orga Offshore, a specialist in the

development of helideck lighting.

Orga Offshore is a world leader in

developing and manufacturing state of the

art hazard warning lights, radar response

beacons, foghorns, fog detectors and

other navigational aids plus solar power

systems for customers in the offshore,

aviation and petrochemical industries.

With respect to helidecks they supply

lighting for Perimeter, Status, Circle & H,

Windsock and Floodlighting, all of which

meets the new UK Civil Aviation Authority

CAP437 recommendations and/or ICAO


Perimeter Lights:

These green 30Cd LED perimeter lights,

designed to be placed at intervals not

more than 3 metres apart around the

perimeter of the safe landing area have

a lamp life of 100,000 hours. Needless

to say this level of lamp life represents

incredibly low maintenance needs.

Status Lights:

These low power consumption lights are

less than 250mms in height and are the

only CAP 437 compliant status lights

available for mounting on a helideck.

A helideck status light system should be

installed if a condition can exist on an

installation which may be hazardous for

the helicopter such as a gas alarm. The

status light signaling system should be

visible 360degrees around the structure

with a flash rate of 120 flashes per

minute and controlled in combination

with the platform gas detection system.

Circle–H Lighting:

These low power consuming, low

maintenance touch down markers and

heliport identification lights are designed

to reduce the so called ‘black hole’ effect

and will eliminate the glare from helideck

floodlighting systems while increasing pilot

orientation awareness.

Helideck Floodlighting:

The HFLO10EX-XE floodlight is an explosion

proof helideck floodlight system. It’s made

with a long life lamp and designed to meet a

tough offshore environment.

Illuminated windsock

This internally illuminated wind direction

indicator enables the pilot to be able to

determine wind direction easily at night.

These products are all available through

J.T. Day.

Cable for

Gorgon Project

JT Day has recently delivered a $5million

order for medium voltage electrical cable

to be installed in the Gorgon, Barrow

Island project.

The order, the second for work on the

island,was placed by Laing O’Rourke who are

undertaking a $98million contract for the Gas

Plant’s general utilities.

Mekano Triangular Channels – extreme

torsional strength and light weight

Since the launch of the triangular support

channels Oglaend System has experienced a

great demand for this cost saving design in

the global oil and gas market.

The so called Mekano 50-2T and 100-2T channels

have been supplied to several large offshore projects

covering facilities such as FPSO’s, drilling platforms

and accommodation platforms.

These channels have significant torsional strength

a result of the triangular design. Small perforations

at the front and large perforations at the back create

a lightweight, flexible and easily installed support


The Mekano triangular channels are part of Oglaend

System’s multidisciplinary support system, MultiGrid,

which can bring a total system cost saving of up to 30

percent during an EPC project.

The large

holes make it

easy to bolt

other parts to

the channel

Customised power boards

for ConocoPhillips

Portable distribution Boards, supplied

by JT Day to requirements of the

operators on the ConocoPhillip’s

Bayu Undan offshore platform off Darwin

are proving to be a success.

ConocoPhillips required 4 new Hazardous

Area rated, 3 phase distribution boards and 4

single phase distribution boards for mounting

on one of its three interconnecting platforms

that are piping gas from the Timor Sea well for

refinement at its Darwin Gas Plant.

Each Three phase distribution board has one

32A and two 16A, 5 pin three phase outlets, as

well as one 16A single phase outlet.

Each Single phase distribution board has

eight 16A single phase outlets. The end result

is that they can now safely provide power

to any area of their 280m long X 80m wide


A company spokesman reported they found

the boards to be well engineered and robust,

suitable for the offshore environment and the

Mekano 100 - 2T

bolted to Mekano

100-1. The bolts

can be mounted

from either side

HA inspection and certification was faultless.

Furthermore, they’re well labelled, easy to

use and a significant improvement over their

existing boards in terms of construction,

reliability and HA conformance.

The development of the boards were project

managed through design, fabrication

and commissioning by JT Day’s, Grant


Compared to a traditional welded support

solution the triangular channels will reduce

the weight of the support solution by up to 45

percent and man hours with up to 65 percent
