Detailed Design of Offloading Conveyor System


Offloading Conveyor System
Long Harbour, Newfoundland

As part of the development of a new nickel, cobalt and copper processing plant in Long Harbour, Newfoundland, concentrate from the Voisey’s Bay mine and concentrator in Labrador will be shipped to and offloaded at Long Harbour.

CWA was retained to design the offloading and process conveyor systems for Vale-Inco’s new Long Harbour Nickel Concentrate and Limestone Processing Facility. CWA performed a design review of the concept designs by Fluor, completed engineering checks on the design to finalize engineering and then completed detailed drawings of the conveyor systems for fabrication, which included the wharf conveyor, limestone system conveyors and conveyors to storage.
