Rio Tinto Alcan Unloader Structure Assessment

The owner of two 40-year-old bauxite unloaders in Quebec, Canada, was evaluating whether to continue operating, to upgrade, or to replace the existing unloaders. As part of the feasibility study, the owner needed a condition assessment of the unloaders by an independent consultant.

Liftech performed an on-site visual assessment of the structural condition of the unloaders. The report included suggestions to improve the structural reliability and extend the structural life. Various modification options for future productivity demand were presented.
