Dredge Relocation Project
The Dredge Relocation Project, valued at $26M AUD, was a significant part of a mine capacity expansion project which required upgrading equipment and systems on the floating Concentrator to tie-in the new dredge. The dredge project comprised of multiple phases in various locations.
Deconstruct the sand dredge at the rehabilitated Jangardup mine site, located 290km SW of Perth, Western Australia, and road transport to Perth for modification and repair.
Encapsulate dredge and strip chromate surface protection. NDT assess the dredge hull and topside structures, repair / replace steel as defined. Modify the hull to incorporate new HV Sub-Station. Blast and paint surfaces and repaint. Install new / overhauled Electrical, Hydraulic and mechanical system.
Road transport the dredge to Cooljarloo Mine construction site, located 175km NNE of Perth. Reconstruct the dredge and weld to the reclaimed spud barge. Fit-out the dredge and dry commission all electric, hydraulic and mechanical systems.
Flood construction pad and verify dredge hull water integrity. Move dredge into the pond and Wet Commission systems. Tie-in dredge to floating Concentrator platform.
