Rio Tinto Alcan Unloader Structure Assessment

Rio Tinto Alcan (RTA) in Quebec, Canada, was evaluating whether to continue operating, to upgrade, or to replace their two existing 40-year-old bauxite unloaders.  As part of the feasibility study, RTA required a condition assessment of the unloaders by an independent consultant. 

Liftech was retained by RTA to perform an on-site visual assessment of the structural and mechanical condition of the unloaders.  Our report included suggestions to improve the structural and mechanical reliability and extend the service life of the structure and the components.  Various modification options for future productivity demand were studied and evaluated for RTA implementation.
