The successful commissioning and full scale production of the new MAX Plant supplied at Atlas Iron – Mt Dove WA.
This contract was again ran in close conjunction with our very good customer MACA Limited (MACA Mining) and for the first time in recent contracts a mix of existing client supplied and MAX Plant supplied new equipment was utilised to maximise plant production to an impressive 580 tonnes per hour of -12mm Iron Ore.
The genesis of the plant was the utilisation of an existing MAX Plant supplied MACA plant based at Crosslands – Jack Hills project Western Australia. The contract to produce Iron Ore had finished. MAX Plant removed the existing units and upgraded them to current specifications. All equipment was transported to MT Dove and installed by MAX Plant along with the introduction of the new equipment which saw the plant expand into its new impressive layout. The plant is totally electric drive controlled by a bespoke operator computer HMI system which integrates all plant functions into an ergonomic and user friendly plant control system.
The MT Dove project, once again proves, and is a shining example, of the total flexibility and versatility of the MAX Plant concept. The utilization of existing equipment, coupled with its flexible footprint and its ability to absorbed into a new format at minimum cost and downtime even during site moves puts MAX Plant into a new league of plant design and operation.
