At Orana Engineering, project management is about delivering high quality outcomes for our clients. Our experienced Project Managers co-ordinate all aspects of a project to ensure the client’s targets are consistently achieved. Managing the core elements of cost, quality and schedule, successful project management realises the right balance and manages conflicts between each one.
Also of great importance for successful project management is the understanding of the client’s needs and expectations. Orana Engineering’s Project Managers have a unique skillset to draw upon with their combination of site experience, practical backgrounds and engineering qualifications allowing them to truly understand our clients' needs and expectations and create outcomes that align with this, meeting all key HSEC, quality assurance, cost and schedule targets throughout the process.
In the role of Project Manager, Orana Engineering has the experience and resources to:
- Co-ordinate various work groups and organisations;
- Schedule and co-ordinate regular meetings;
- Manage project variations;
- Promote and enforce client HSEC requirements;
- Prepare and track project schedules;
- Communicate project matters to all relevant parties;
- Schedule permits and outages;
- Prepare project reports; and
- Track budgets, budget forecasting and cost control.
Engaging our project management services ensures that all aspects which effect the delivery of a project are the responsibility of our Project Managers, including resolving commercial issues, tendering and liaising with subcontractors, risk management and HSEC issues, commissioning and handover. Personnel have access to a wide range of tools, procedures and processes that have been developed and refined by Orana Engineering to ensure effective cost estimation, management of budgets and change management.
Our project management services are of value throughout all stages of a project, from concept design through to detailed design, construction and handover. An experienced Orana Engineering Project Manager adds value to a project by:
- Dedicating a resource to manage the project, freeing up the time of the client so they can focus on the day to day operational issues;
- Allowing clients to remain informed and be in control of the project without having to dedicate time to managing the details;
- Providing the potential to achieve the highest quality outcome by engaging a practical Project Manager that has the time, expertise and experience to do the job right. Orana Engineering’s Project Managers are skilled engineers with hands on site experience;
- Seamlessly integrating additional services as required such as Client Engineer, design drafting, drawing revisions and drawing management giving clients one point of contact for any mechanical, electrical, structural or control systems engineering services requirements; and
- Offering the confidence of an experienced project management service with a proven track record.
An added advantage of being a smaller organisation is that for larger projects (i.e. >$2.5M), we can act on behalf of the client in the role of Project Manager and/or Client Engineer without a conflict of interest, as Orana Engineering do not tend to pursue design works for larger engineering projects.
Orana Engineering has a proven track record ensuring outcomes are consistently achieved and has project managed projects with values in excess of $20M. Our reliable Project Managers are technical experts and bring a depth of knowledge and experience to every project.

UG Conveyor Installations – MG32 Tripper Chamber
Maingate roadways mined to accommodate longwall conveyors at Glencore’s Oaky No. 1 underground coal mine can vary from a few hundred meters to over 4 kilometres in length. Transporting vast quantities of coal over long distances requires a significant amount of power. In some cases the drive-head power is insufficient or is constrained by the allowable belt tension and an additional drive / power source is required to meet the required operating capacity. Commonly this additional power will come in the form of a driven conveyor tripper installed at a nominal point along the conveyor, which requires the appropriate excavation for the tripper installation inclusive of drives, tripper frame, braking and belt starter.Read more
