Port Facilities at Dampier and Port Hedland
BHT Group has designed a number of facilities for our clients at Dampier and Port Hedland. These facilities are either on-shore or marine structure. They include material unloading bridge, stockpile reclaim tunnel, conveyor system, ship-loader modification, tug-pen pontoon, dolphin, fender, cathodic protection for jetty structure, etc.
Rectification of Vibration Issue at a Crusher Building
BHT Group was engaged by BHPBIO to fix up an existing crusher building at their Yandi mine site which was demonstrating severe vibration issue to the instrumentation and maintenance personnel. BHT Group carried out site investigation, analysis and came out with feasible modifications to the building which effectively reduce the vibration to an acceptable level.
Rio Tinto Technology and Innovation
BHT GROUP and T&I have previously worked in conjunction to develop new conveying technologies through mobile conveyance technologies, in pit crushing and mining technology and Order of Magnitude studies for Simandou and Oxbow mine sites within the Rio Tinto expansion plan.
The Order of Magnitude studies incorporated in-pit crushing and flexible one flight conveyance systems for mine sites, removing the need for multiple transfer points, haulage requirements and reducing overall Capex and Opex Costs.
Simandou Mine in Guinea, West Africa encompassed a Capex and Opex study based on removing haulage requirements from the mine site and studies on potential alternative mining methods and delivery. The NexCon system was proposed as the main design model for this mine. The main risk for Simandou was the haulage impacts and high rainfall patterns effectively comprising haulage and traditional mining methods. The NexCon system removed all risks in regards to the main haulage of the mined material.
