The OK Tedi Mining operations within Kiunga, identified that their DC cone within the thickener was corroded and due for replacement. The Thickener is one of Ok Tedi mining’s critical copper concentrate processing and production equipment’s for the Kiunga Filtration and Ship Loading Facility, so a short turnaround time from TKI was crucial.
TKI replaced the upper one with a new cone while the bottom cone was blasted, painted and a new outer skin placed over it with new support columns. The task was completed on time and to a high standard with no injuries.
TKI were chosen for the task due to our impeccable safety record, documented staff competencies and our leaders, who ensure the job is delivered to exceed the expectations of our customers.
