The Task
The Hail Creek Rail unloading bin uses the client's technology to improve the efficiency of rail unloading of coal.

Our Role
There would be very few storage bins that would match the complexity of this bin design.  As well as the obvious complex shape, the complexity of the load patterns which needed to be analysed was technically very challenging.  Ultimately an economical outcome was achieved and the techniques developed on this project have been used to design the similar but substantially larger Caval Ridge Loading Facility, also for Schenck Process Australia Pty Ltd.
