TIC was awarded the contract for the M&P and E&I work at an existing 28,000 TPD molybdenum mine that was brought back into production. Scope of work included demolition of existing structures, refurbishment of the primary and secondary crushing facilities, and construction of new facilities including a new mill and concentrator, ore storage and material handling systems, and a new main substation.
Located on the Island of Newfoundland, Vale's Long Harbour Processing Plant is one of the largest in the world to use a new hydrometallurgical process that will refine 50,000 tonnes per year of nickel ore in a more economical and environmentally friendly manner.
The project involved building a 382,000-square-foot premium pet food manufacturing facility to replace an aging plant. T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was selected as the design-build contractor based on positive experiences from an earlier project.
Tyson Foods contracted Ibberson to provide complete turnkey work for their new poultry feed mill in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The mill includes fully automated batching at 140 TPH, pelleting in two lines at 120 TPH, rail receiving at 600 TPH, truck receiving at 350 TPH, barge unloading at 600 TPH, grinding at 120 TPH, and loadout at 400 TPH.
This project was the first vertical tower in North America with both germination and kilning capabilities. It is unique because all processes are in one building rather than having them separated into multiple buildings. It is also one of the first round malt house facilities in the country. The facility uses 300 tons of barley each day to produce malt for the brewing industry.
