Mill avoids expensive shutdowns as flood waters rise

12 May 2019


With a maintenance shutdown due to severe corrosion of a steel inbound water pipe and a short lead time, things took a turn for the worst.

Torrential rain was forecast to fall, surrounding the town cutting off access to the mine.

The call was put in to the custom fabrication team at Advanced Piping who worked around the clock to produce the required custom prefab HDPE spools.  4 days later, the order was on it’s way in a race to get ahead of the impending weather system.

Just 10 days from the alarm being raised the installation was complete and the Mill ready to resume processing.

After installation torrential rain fell surrounding the local town with floodwaters cutting off access to the mine. The expensive crisis was diverted.

Well done to all involved and the team at the Mill.
