BHP – Billiton Case Study
Through previous work undertaken for BHP, Ausnet were approached to provide a solution for a unique problem.
The conveyor systems employed by BHP are designed to carry thousands of tonnes of materials although from time to time, some components of these systems break down and can dislodge or are thrown from the belts resulting in the potential to cause damage to machinery or injury to personnel.
The weight and size of the materials caused further issues and meant that the design needed to be strong and flexible. Ausnet assessed the design and location of the conveyors and provide a solution to this problem.
