Newcastle Coal Terminal Stacker Reclaimers & Shiploaders Installation

Sandvik Mining & Construction

Newcastle Coal Export Terminal, New South Wales, Australia

G&S Engineering carried out the Structural and Mechanical Installation of two Sandvik-designed stacker reclaimers and one Sandvik shiploader at the Newcastle Port.

The scope included the assembly and installation of:

  • Bogies
  • Substructures
  • Slew bearing and machining of paths
  • Superstructure
  • Boom and mast structures
  • Counterweight boom and counterweight
  • Bucket wheel and drive systems
  • On-board conveyors, and
  • Piping and hydraulic installation.


G&S supplied all construction equipment, cranage, supervision and labour for the project including commissioning support. Our team also provided labour and equipment support for the off-loading of major components from heavy lift ships and barges, including assistance during heavy transport from berthing facilities to construction sites.

Reducing costs and risk

G&S implemented an innovative build process driving greater pre-assembly on the ground than Sandvik anticipated, resulting in reduced overall costs and working at heights risk.

Following this erection projects, G&S was offered the maintenance contracts at NCIG.
