LGM Industries was engaged to remove a damaged conveyor and associated infrastructure then repair and replace damaged components.

A conveyor fire that spread into coal storage hoppers at Griffin Coal’s Ewington Mine in Collie, Western Australia resulted in damage to coal loading facilities, primarily conveyors 11 and 12, that feed the coal storage bins above the train load-out facility.

The schedule to remediate and commission the conveyors to allow Griffin to resume normal operations was critical, therefore effective project management was essential.

LGM’s scope of work for this project included:

  • CV11 and 12 were completely disassembled and removed from site to the LGM Picton Workshop for repairs and refurbishment. This included all Head Pulleys, Tail Pulleys, Take Up Tower Pulleys and Counterweight Systems, Conveyor Modules complete with roller frames and rollers, Scrappers, Sheaders, Grafting, Handrailing, Process Water Piping and Fire Piping.
  • Fabrication and installation of replacement Take Up Tower and Sample Station.
  • Installation of replacement Sankey Conveyor.
  • Removal, repair and relining of Head Chutes and Discharge Chutes.
  • Extensive structural repairs conveyor trestle legs.
  • Fabrication of replacement conveyor guarding.
  • Supply and installation of Strake Stiffening to Load Out Bins.
  • Coordination with electrical contractors conducting electrical refurbishment.
  • Commissioning activities.
