Boral Plasterboard - Port Melbourne Upgrade
SCE upgraded the Boral Plasterboard Wharf to Store Conveyor System
Upgrade to an existing Plasterboard manufacturing facility to which SCE provided a Design Build service. Gypsum is delivered by ship to an unload receival hopper, through three sealed conveyors to a suspended conveyor carrying a travelling discharge plough. This diverts the gypsum into a 45,000T capacity shed.
The plant operates in the Melbourne CBD and SCE had to adhere to strict Town planning requirements for both operational and design requirements.
The project comprised of several large lifts including a 75M long conveyor lift at 25M height, utilising 2 x 450T cranes during SCE planned weekend road closure.
This is the second major project for Boral Australia that SCE have completed.
