GRM Coal Reclaimer and Stacker Upgrade
Moranbah, Queensland

Project Details

Goonyella Riverside Mine (GRM) is a coal mine located in the Bowen Basin approximately 30km north of Moranbah, and 190km southwest of Mackay. The Raw Coal Reclaimer and Raw Coal Stacker at Goonyella Riverside Mine is over 30 years old and much of both machines do not meet latest Standards, Codes and BMA specifications. In effort to rectify this and extend the machines’ operational life, the machines were to undergo an overhaul of electrical and mechanical infrastructure.

The project required significant works during the shutdown. The scope of work encompassed all E&I activities and Mechanical rectification on both machines, which included the following:

  • Replace existing switchrooms including temporary works to allow removal
  • Replace travel motors, remove existing travel brakes and replace isolators and cabling
  • Re-connect existing cables to new switchrooms
    Provide modification to platforms and handrails to accommodate new switchrooms
  • Testing and quality assurance
  • Provide assistance for commissioning

CE Group mobilised a large team of tradesman to complete the multidiscipline scope of works on both machines during day and night shifts. The works involved CE Group engaging and managing a mechanical subcontractor to work closely with CE Group to ensure interface issues were at a minimum. The project scope increased during the shutdown but was successfully delivered on time back to the client and plant operational as required by BMA.
