Materials Management (MM) stockpile mesh canopies

The MM stockpile bay was also identified as a discharge point for fugitive dust emissions. The MM system is an active stockpile area used to store raw materials which are fed into the cement making process by front end loaders and trucks.

To minimise fugitive dust generated in this area, a mesh canopy arrangement was considered. Operations and technical personal worked together to design a canopy that would capture the optimum level of dust generated from tipping and loading activities.

The canopy's primary purpose is to act as a wind barrier and effectively contain any dust generated within the loading bays. Installation is scheduled for early this year.
