Loy Yang Mine uses four bucket wheel excavators, each with a dedicated face conveyor and downstream conveyor systems, taking coal to power stations and waste to overburden dumps. Loy Yang plays a critical role in supplying two coal-fired power stations (totaling 3000MW). Recently the mine had grown to a size where it was practical to re-arrange the conveyors at the bottom of the mine and start dumping overburden at the bottom.
BMT undertook the conceptual and detail design of the new trunk conveyor L400, and new overburden conveyors L702 and L705, plus modifications to other conveyors. The design permitted major parts of the new structures to be built before the changeover outage and minimized the outage work
The new conveyor structures were designed and detailed so that they could be made in either Australia or elsewhere. AGL chose to procure the steelwork in China, and BMT provided technical support throughout the manufacturing. The new conveyors were completed and commissioned in in March 2017.
¡VAMOS! aspires to enable the provision of a stable and competitive supply of raw materials for Europe by increasing the production of raw materials within the EU with the help of a breakthrough underwater mining system.
BMT was engaged to prepare designs to more than double the output of an existing barge loading facility in Kalimantan, Indonesia. The facility handles a number of different grades of coal to deliver a specified blend to each barge.
BMT machinery group can provide specialist capabilities for both the design of new or optimisation of existing In Pit Crushing and Conveying (IPCC) Systems.
BMT designed the port as multi product facility that could handle both import and export of bulk products, livestock export and possibly Ro-Ro traffic.
