ABOUT THE CLIENT

Nyrstar N.V. is a mining and metals business that specializes in zinc. Nystar has mining, smelting, and other operations located in Europe, the Americas, China, and Australia.

PROJECT TYPE

Modular transport and installation. This is the perfect project for Lampson International equipment as it suits the company operated, specialized, over-dimensional trailer as well as heavy lifting capabilities of the Lampson Transi-Lift® LTL-2600.

WEIGHT(S) LIFTED

Total lifted load for the furnace module was 1,494,200 pounds and 293,000 pounds for the pipe rack.

THE CHALLENGES

The site is designated as high risk. Site personnel must change clothes completely when entering, shower before exiting, wear respiration protection, and full length overalls (with normal PPE that is standard across Australian worksites). The site is located in the south central part of Australia , therefore the location is on average 2,000km from either of the more populated East or West coasts. Transportation of equipment and the mobilization of personnel are at an increased level of cost. Designating the correct amount of right-sized equipment as well as the number of personnel required for the project was challenging. In addition, keeping costs down for the client was also challenging; however, Lampson was successful at doing this while efficiently transporting and lifting all of the construction loads.
