:: BET Expands its Presence in North America

Bateman Engineered Technologies (BET), a strategic business unit of the Bateman Engineering Group, has opened an office in Calgary, Canada to spearhead business development, initially in North America.

The office will market Bateman Engineered Technologies expertise and technologies in bulk materials handling, as well as its range of specialised processing equipment. (Delkor, which was acquired by Bateman Engineered Technologies in 2008, will continue to market its processing equipment in Canada from its operation in Vancouver.)

Bateman Engineered Technologies already has a sound track record in North America, with a current involvement in a significant bulk materials handling project in Western Canada. The USD14 million Windfall project commenced in February 2008, with completion expected by mid 2009. Awarded by Standard General Inc, the project is an LSTK contract with shared risk and is being executed in co-operation with a local partner in Canada. The project scope covers the provision of facilities for the storage and train loading of aggregates for road building, including a stacker, two reclaim tunnel lines and a load out station.

The first portion of the project has been completed with 95 % of the mechanical installation complete as well as the electrical installation on the reclaim train and load out facility. Activities will be resumed at the end of April / early May 2009 once weather permits and full completion of the project is expected within two months.

Due to the construction costs in Canada, the plant has been built in modular format to minimise construction on site. In line with this approach, the two reclaim tunnel lines were built in the workshop complete with conveyor structure, feeders, idlers and chutes prior to shipping to site.

On the specialised equipment side, the division has supplied four pneumo-drier systems for Canadian projects, two of the most recent being for major De Beers diamond projects: the Snap Lake and Victor Mine Recovery Projects. Bateman Engineered Technologies also supplied a vacuum spillage and transport system at Snap Lake for the same project.
