Tendele Coal - Somkhele

Somkhele Discards Treatment Plant

Client: Tendele Coal (South Africa)
Location: Richards bay Area, South Africa
Commissioning Year: 2012/13
Industry: Mining and minerals
Commodity: Coal

As a follow-on project to the successful completion of the Somkhele 2 coal processing plant, the discards treatment plant was designed to process 330 t/h of dense medium drum discards or tailings from older operations. The plant consists of crushing, dense medium drum, primary dense medium cyclone and a thickener.

The plant is also designed to process troublesome clay bearing seams that decrease throughput in the two existing coal processing plants. Our scope included detailed process, mechanical, structural, and civil design as well as construction supervision and commissioning.
