The stockyard at Paraburdoo consists of four (4) stockpiles, each 430m long. These stockpiles are reclaimed using two bridge type reclaimers, running on dedicated reclaimer rails parallel to each stockpile.
BG&E Resources were engaged to develop the detailed design for the remediation solution for the reclaimer rails and foundation which involved re-design of an in-situ design and construction methodology to provide a design life of a further 25 years.
We also served as the Owner’s Engineer and Design Engineer on the project, and provided site support which included providing two project engineers, one Senior Project Engineer and one Project Engineer to track progress, facilitate quality coordination and expedite technical queries.
