The Solomon NPI facilities work consisted of three distinct projects involving a workshop and two fuel facilities.


A new three-bay workshop with 30T overhead traveling gantry crane provides additional floor space to allow the servicing of heavy haul trucks. The workshop design allows for jacking of Komatso 930e vehicles and full opening of the tray.


The Kings and Firetail fuel facilities are used for refueling of both autonomous and manned heavy haul trucks. Fuel is stored in 110kL horizontal storage tanks with the ability to dispense filtered fuel at multiple refueling points.


The facilities are filled via pipeline to maintain diesel supply, with all fuel metered and reporting to a Banlaw fuel management system for reconciliation purposes.


The project delivery included concept approval, detailed design, procurement, installation and commissioning. With our self-perform mentality, Primero was able to offer significant additional value to the client which resulted in facilities much greater in scope and quality than originally planned. Innovation though constructibility, process improvement and industry-leading Safety in Design has resulted in a successful, turn-key multi-discipline project.
