The Conveyor Counterweight Project was brought about due to the existing system of lifting, lowering and locating the conveyor counterweight for maintenance purposes being both time consuming and unsafe. Wilshaw was contracted by BHP Billiton – Nickel West to provide the following improvements to the CV05 and CV10 conveyors:

  • Develop a new counterweight lifting system.
  • Develop a new counterweight locating system.
  • Provide additional maintenance platforms and access ladders at the Take-up Towers.

Wilshaw completed all engineering design and detailing for the required for these upgrade to the conveyor. In addition to this, Wilshaw provided the capital cost estimates and material take offs for CV05 and CV10 conveyor counterweight upgrade.
