Stainless Steel Hoppers

Start Date:May 2015
Completion Date:Sep 2015

Based on a North American design PW were contracted to manufacture and install some large stainless steel hoppers for a fertilizer blending plant. As part of the process the hoppers were remodelled in CAD to obtain the profiles used for laser cutting and to optimise plate utilisation. The hoppers were fabricated in Mosgiel before being transported to Christchurch for installation.

The second stage of this project was to manufacture and install the structural steelwork that will support these hoppers as well as assemble the assosiated plant and equipment. Installation is now complete and more of this can be seen under our projects section.
