A design, engineering and manufacturing milestone
NEPEAN Conveyors was awarded the design and supply contract for the 90m transfer conveyor and radial stacker with a 270 degree slew angle. NEPEAN Conveyors will provide the complete conveying solution incorporating our own in-house Australian made idlers and pulleys to form a complete package with a single point of contact for the complete system.
The engineering responsibility covers all structural, mechanical and electrical instrumentation for the Transfer Conveyor and the Radial Stacker for Newmont Mining Services Pty Ltd located at the Tanami mine in the Northern Territory.
The prerequisite for the project was to develop design solutions that manage a filtered tailings product that had variable moisture properties whilst minimising corrosion due to the upstream process. This needed to combine some unique technical requirements in combination with a reliable and cost effective design to create a fit for purpose package.
Historically the mine site has had challenges with corrosion due to the process fluids, especially on the guard panels, an innovative solution included fabricating all guards from corrosion resistant FRP (Fibre Reinforced Plastic) panels.
With our modern manufacturing and balancing machinery we can produce high precision conveyor products, improving the performance, reliability, safety and energy efficiency of modern conveyors and the other systems that interact with them.
Strategically NEPEAN is located close to major mining areas, our team listens, supports and works through customers’ specific needs for pulleys, idlers, structures and engineered solutions.
