NEPEAN Conveyors Pty Ltd is pleased to advise we have been awarded a circa $50 million contract from major coal miner Yancoal Australia Pty Ltd to design, develop and install a complete underground to surface conveyor system for the highly anticipated Moolarben Coal Complex in New South Wales.
NEPEAN Conveyors was able to provide a complete conveyor package solution with a superior technical offering that also met Yancoal’s need for urgent and reliable, on-time delivery.
The project consists of an 1800mm wide Drift Conveyor, an 1800mm underground Trunk Conveyor, complete with three 1600mm wide underground Maingate Conveyors, to handle 4500 tons per hour production from the Longwall System.
The contract was signed in February, and construction works have been progressing on schedule with main drift works set to be completed in September. The underground trunk and maingate construction works are also progressing and are planned to be completed in accordance to the delivery schedule.
The Moolarben Coal Complex is a world-class coal project. At full production capacity the complex will produce 17 million tonnes per annum of run of mine coal and employ approximately 450 personnel.
NEPEAN Conveyors is proud to be consistently recognised as Australia’s industry leader in heavy materials handling conveyor solutions. Through its work with Yancoal, NEPEAN Conveyors has again proven its capability to provide highly customised conveyor solutions to major miners with world class projects of a massive scale.
