KMG: Ridges Iron Ore: Wyndham Barge Loading Facility

BHP: Appin Area 9: Coal Clearance System

Owner: Kimberley Metals Group

Project Type: Design, Supply, Install, Commission

Timing: 2011

Value: $15M

Scope: Design, supply and  installation assistance package for greenfield 1755tph barge loading facility site, incorporating: jetty overland conveyor, pivot conveyor, substation and control system.

 

Significant design criteria: The pivot conveyor was particularly challenging, with the head end positioned on a pontoon capable of moving significantly in all directions, loading into a rotating hopper and having to accommodate an 8.5m tidal range and withstand cyclonic wind conditions.

 

Design of the CV01 jetty conveyor was also very challenging in terms of the footing design for the intertidal zone land and the overwater section. Management of differential settlement was paramount in ensuring system performance did not erode due to environmental conditions.
