Mbalam Iron Ore Railway Expansion

Sundance Resources

Cameroon, West Africa

Sundance Resources’ Mbalam Iron Ore Project is a major mining project straddling the border of Cameroon and Congo. Calibre provided hydraulic and structural details for the project’s railway alignment, which stretches over 500km.

This significant alignment includes 13 bridge crossings and 15 culvert crossings, with both road and rail bridges considered at these locations. Both culvert and bridge solutions were developed at a number of locations for comparison purposes.

Project highlights

  • Flood analysis and option development for 56 major waterway structures
  • Constructability option assessment for remote African location
  • Standardisation of structural elements for regional resources
