Paste Backfill Plant at Flying Fox Mine


Under Contract to Outotec, this project was for the fabrication of a mobile Paste Backfill Plant at our workshop in Gunnedah which was then towed to the Flying Fox Mine, WA. The project also included the fabrication, delivery and onsite installation of a 3m diameter slurry tank and silo support structure and free-issue mechanical items. Surface treatment of all steelwork was carried out at our paint and blast facility including the internal surface of the tank which paint specification called for a 2000 micron DFT.

The project included: fabrication, delivery to site, structural, mechanical, and piping installation onsite for Western Areas Limited at their Flying Fox nickel mine which was completed in June 2015.

This also included all the electrical installation being completed by Stripes Electrical.
