Project Scope

3 tower stackers for Telfer Gold mine The three identical stackers included slew, luff and shuttle capability in order to maximise the stockpile size. Significant liaison with other suppliers was required to ensure the support tower and park locations were correctly positioned and designed. Fabrication was carried out in Tasmania necessitating a design that allowed for ease of road transport and subsequent site erection.
