Alcoa Aluminium required additional hydrate storage was required due to several major Calciner overhauls were approached to help mitigate any production impact by investigating feasible and cost-effective storage, export, reclaim and transport solutions that could be implemented to meet this short-term storage capacity shortfall with minimal impact to production. BGER’s investigation identified various options such as; expansion of existing sheds, inflatable storage sheds, modular prefabricated dome shelter and conventional steel sheds. The modular fabricated structure was selected as it was able to deliver the required capacity in an accelerated schedule.
