HAVING been in operation for more than 12 years, MaxiTool Dredging Services owns and operates a fleet of dredges that can meet the demands of the most difficult projects.
The company’s team of dredge operators is highly experienced in all aspects of dredging, including the safe dredging of high-density-polyethylenelined ponds without risk of damage to the lining.
Whether de-silting return water dams to improve capacity or performing maintenance works for process ponds, MaxiTool has the equipment and kno-how to complete the project. Recently, MaxiTool carried out dredging at Wesfarmers Resources’ Curragh coal mine. The dredging was conducted on site at Retention Dam 7 (RD7). RD7 is one of the main supply dams for the coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP), and the dredging has enabled higher water retention capacity in the CHPP’s operations.
The dredging program was carried out in 12 weeks, with the goal to remove the build up of solids that had occurred due to an overflow of Retention Dam8.
“The project was completed on time and on budget, with zero injuries, and was considered a successful outcome by all stakeholders,” Curragh mechanical supervisor Bruce Gabriel said.
