10M TAGS Sled
At James Cook University, MBD Energy operates a research facility investigating methods of cultivating and harvesting algae. To allow the scientists to better control the algae agitation sleds, MBD Energy engaged the services of Orana Engineering to design and commission the mechanical, electrical and control systems that would enable the agitation sled velocity and frequency of travel to be automated.Read more
Crane Lifting Beam
The mother beam of the 40T ship loading crane at the Port of Townsville had been in service for over 30 years and was nearing the end of its service life. With regulatory compliance changes and much improved safety practices in the past 30 years, Xstrata Copper (now Glencore) engaged Orana Engineering to redesign the mother beam based on the existing beam and incorporating required changes to meet the current compliance requirements. This was also an opportunity to improve the current design by incorporating feedback from the crane operators and maintenance personnel.Read more
Tank Farm Upgrade
Melbourne Bio Diesel’s (MBD) James Cook University (JCU) research facility required an elevated level area to allow the installation of a series of tanks for the purpose of storing fresh sea water. Orana Engineering was requested to provide a design solution that not only increased efficiency with the tank draining but to also improve safety around the new tanks.Read more
Tippler Refurbishment Feasibility
The Glencore Port Operations in Townsville operate an export facility for minerals concentrate and refined copper within the Port of Townsville precinct. The concentrate in-loading rotaside tippler has been identified as being at end of life and a feasibility study was commissioned in order to review the like-for-like replacement option for refurbishment of the tippler, considering the increased demand on the tippler moving forward.Read more
