Golden Bay Cement (GBC) contracted Skookum Technology to resolve issues to restore a cement silo to full capacity and operability as efficiently and safely as possible. The 30 m high 5500 t capacity concrete cement silo held approximately 2200 t of cement that could not be removed. This was generally sloping against one part of the silo’s circumference and posed a significant hazard if personnel attempted to enter the silo to systematically remove the build-up.
Skookum helped source, decommission, remove, clean, ship, check and refurb, re-install and commission a complete Trim, Sort, Stack line from North America to New Zealand. The project timeline was approx. 12-16 months from sending a team to North America to commissioning.
