Graduate Civil Engineer
Kenny officially joined SCT at the end of 2016 after graduating from the University of Wollongong with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering. Completing his undergraduate thesis in the field of cable bolt shearing, he is excited to grow and expand in the multi-faceted SCT team.
Initially involved in the construction of ANZI stress cell equipment and in the development of a new deep exploration logger housing, he also had a major role in the design, construction and installation of both a water management system and second generation of temperature probes for use underground in LKAB’s Kiirunavaara Mine in Northern Sweden. This project provided him with a unique experience, working in a remote environment alongside the CSIRO’s Melbourne Hydraulic Fracturing group as well as senior SCT staff and the LKAB R&D and rock mechanics department in a world first hydraulic fracturing trial aimed at reducing seismicity in and around the mine.
Currently, Kenny is working in the packer testing and permeability testing area, gaining experience in the field and with a range of equipment related to this work. Future endeavours involve using his civil engineering degree to expand on SCT’s already growing civil capabilities, an opportunity he is very excited about.Blog Posts
