In addition to our maritime work with vessels TMC Australia occasionally get a little diversity such as a recent incident in a mine site almost 500km inland from the nearest coast line.
The incident involved the sinking of a floating concentrator plant barge used to grade mineral sand that has been dredged from the bottom of the mine pond.
TMC were engaged by the insurer as Marine Advisers during the recovery and repair of the concentrator plant.
As dry docks are not readily available in the Australian bush some ingenuity was required to drain the pond and construct a level platform to recover and dock the concentrator for repair. The concentrator is now back into full production mode.
