Newcastle Coal Terminal Stacker Reclaimers & Shiploaders Installation
Sandvik Mining & Construction
Newcastle Coal Export Terminal, New South Wales, Australia
G&S Engineering carried out the Structural and Mechanical Installation of two Sandvik-designed stacker reclaimers and one Sandvik shiploader at the Newcastle Port.
The scope included the assembly and installation of:
- Slew bearing and machining of paths
- Boom and mast structures
- Counterweight boom and counterweight
- Bucket wheel and drive systems
- On-board conveyors, and
- Piping and hydraulic installation.
G&S supplied all construction equipment, cranage, supervision and labour for the project including commissioning support. Our team also provided labour and equipment support for the off-loading of major components from heavy lift ships and barges, including assistance during heavy transport from berthing facilities to construction sites.
Reducing costs and risk
G&S implemented an innovative build process driving greater pre-assembly on the ground than Sandvik anticipated, resulting in reduced overall costs and working at heights risk.
Following this erection projects, G&S was offered the maintenance contracts at NCIG.
