Project Scope

After two previous submissions (over several years) for this tender, MCA Engineering were successful in a bid for the design and construction contract for the Refurbishment of the Copper Concentrator Crude Ore Bin.

The client’s scope was to bring the Bin back to its original design capacity being 60,000T of live ore whilst including full replacement and refurbishment of all Bin 36 Rock Boxes and Syntechton Feeders.

The project took 9 months to complete with no Lost Time Injuries (LTI’s) recorded. The COB project was a major success for MCA Engineering. The project’s success was recognised by winning the 2014 QLD Steel Institute Excellence Award for Engineering Projects.
