Parrish & Heimbecker: Trenton, Ontario Plant Expansion
In the spring of 2010 M&G Millwrights was awarded the contract by Peter Bisback - P.Bisback Consulting Services Inc. for the material handling portion of a large addition to the Parrish & Heimbecker (P&H) mill in Trenton, Ontario.
Included in the equipment supply and installation were the following:
- Two 30in x 49ft long reclaim conveyors
- One 15,000 bph 190ft discharge bucket elevator
- One 36in x 52ft+ long belt conveyor complete with 52ft long conveyor bridge
- One 36in x 160ft reversing belt conveyor complete with conveyor bridge
- One 30in x 35ft long transfer conveyor complete with conveyor bridge
- Distributor / turnhead, all spouting, deadboxes, inlets / discharges, valves, gates, support towers, catwalks, caged ladders and all safety guarding.
For months, the Design team at M&G and the Fabrication shop were dedicated to the above items. All components including the 160ft belt conveyor and bridge were fully assembled and tested in the shop before being shipped.
The onsite work started with the addition of two 46ft diameter x 134ft high concrete silos. Once those were up, M&G started with the Installation of the tunnel conveyors and sweep augers. A project this size and taking many months to install adjacent to where production is continuing, takes good, consistent communication with all. Working closely with PBisback Consulting, P&H and other sub-contractors, M&G was able to complete the Installation with minimal disruption to daily business. The busiest day was when Mammoet Crane had their 500t crane in to erect in one lift, the 160ft reversing belt conveyor c/w conveyor bridge.
Having the right team members both at the office and on site are paramount to ensuring customer satisfaction and a successful project for all. M&G is proud to be associated with highly valued customers such as PBisback Consulting Service and Parrish & Heimbecker, and look forward to a growing relationship with both.
