Shiploader – Cannington Mine Project

This was a value design and construct project for BHP’s Cannington Mine.
Steelcad was involved early in the documentation phase when both the mechanical and structural design were incomplete. We provided dimensional fit and clearance checks during design finalisation and carried the drafting through to as-built and owner modifications. The loader was built in Mackay, North Queensland, and transported to Townsville by heavy-lift ship for final commissioning.
