NCIG - Coal Gantry Lifting Design
MPC were engaged to provide construction phase design services for Theiss Pty Ltd on this large coal infrastructure project. MPC carried out detailed structural modeling and analysis for transport and lifting of numerous large fabricated items. MPC provided transport, lift and rotation procedures for the train unloading station hoppers; lifting beam and lug design for numerous complete conveyor gantries up to 57m length and 200 tonnes; and lifting design of large buffer bin segments with a maximum single lift of 260 tonnes. MPC worked closely with Theiss construction personnel on the project to develop safe and practical lifting solutions. The capacity of critical structural components was verified using Finite Element Analysis software Strand7.
