Zinc Concentrate Storage Shed and Outload Facility
This design and construct project entailed the construction of a zinc filter plant and zinc concentrate storage and outload facility. The project includes new filters capable of producing 700,000 tonnes per annum of dried concentrate.
Clever programming enabled the storage facility to be built from the inside out to eliminate a build-up of zinc concentrate. All framework and support beams are visible on the exterior of the shed, providing a smooth interior surface.
The state-of-the-art outload facility was constructed over a railway line, allowing trains to pull into the shed so concentrate can be loaded into carts and covered internally.
