Cockatoo Island Plant Conveyor System
Process 26 was engaged by Leighton Contractors to complete the structural and mechanical design associated with the relocation of the primary crushing station and upgrading of the tertiary crushing circuit. The project included the design of the concrete foundations under the primary crushing station, the design of a new larger ROM bin and the design of two transfer conveyors totalling 210m to tie the primary station back into the existing crushing plant.
The tertiary crushing circuit upgrade involved the replacement of an impact crusher with a 315kW cone crusher. Process 26 completed the detailed design of all mechanical and structural components associated with the upgrade including conveyor realignments, cone crusher support structure and a 40t feed bin equipped with a roll out belt feeder.
Process 26 then assisted with the construction project management and commissioning of the upgraded system.
