Case Study: Prominent Hill Mine
Location: Prominent Hill, SA
Application: Fire Water Storage
Industry: Power and Mining
Our team was engaged to dismantle and replace an existing 2.6 ML water tank with a TS600 steel bolted open top tank at Prominent Hill Mine. The entire project occurred within a 14-day mine shutdown period and was completed within the stringent mine safety protocols.
Our site crew implemented the use of 3 EWPs (cherry pickers), 2 cranes and many hours of experience. The crews had to remove sludge from the existing tank before the dismantle. Following the construction of the new Hot Dipped Galvanised Tank, the crew had to re-connect it to the existing pipework, including a 800NB outlet that lined up millimetre perfect. The crew then performed hydro-testing and commissioned the new tank all within the tight schedule.
This project required efficient teamwork between all departments to ensure the project worked to the schedule required by the client. The Project was completed with just under a week to spare, highlighting the capability of our site crews and of our project management team's expertise.
