Mangoola Coal Preparation Plant

Civil & Structural Engineering

The Task
Xstrata Coal acquired the greenfield site for the proposed Mangoola Coal operation.  Lindsay Dynan's assignment was to design a CPP structural arrangement to accommodate the process developed by Downer EDI Engineering.

Our Role
Lindsay Dynan’s solution involves 1400 tonnes of structural steel arranged to not only support plant and equipment, but also to ensure vibration limits experienced throughout the plant complied with stringent performance criteria.  The plant was successfully erected using modular construction.

Lindsay Dynan worked closely with the design and construction team to ensure that the building could be effectively assembled using several designated work areas to allow completed modules craned into the final position.  This sped up the construction process, significantly reduced the need to work at heights, and maximised utilisation of mobile and fixed construction plant.

The plant was successfully commissioned and handed over to Xstrata Coal, and met all the client’s specified structural performance requirements.
