PRESS RELEASE: Sedgman has a long association with the Meandu mine, having been involved in the design and commissioning of the original coal processing plant in 1986. The existing tailings dam is approaching full capacity, and Sedgman’s dewatering solution uses centrifuges to reduce the moisture content, allowing Stanwell Corporation to dispose of the fine tailings with coarse plant reject.

Sedgman managing director Michael Carretta said: “New methods for handling and storing tailings are evolving worldwide, and Sedgman works actively with technology providers to improve the economics of these solutions. Our expertise in this field means that we are able to deliver further value for our clients.”

Works are expected to be completed by November 2017.
