Ship Loader Design and Installation - Cape Flattery

Design and installation of new 2500T/Hr ship loader

Located on the eastern side of Cape York, The Cape Flattery Silica sand mine is approximately 240km North of Cairns. In a logistically challenging project, JPR was engaged to design a new 2500T per hour ship loader.

JPR was responsible for the procurement of all electrical equipment for the ship loader and its shipping to Japan for installation by the Japanese machine builder. JPR also managed quality assurance throughout the project, the no load testing and the commissioning of the ship loader in Japan prior to its shipping to site. Once on site, JPR will manage the final assembly and commissioning of machine and site performance testing of the completed system.
