Dynapumps recently supplied a fire water pump package to the Amrun project in the Weipa / Aurukun region of Western Cape York, Far North Queensland.
The Amrun project is the construction of a range of infrastructure to support mining including a processing plant and port near Boyd Bay, a dam, tailings storage facility, roads and a ferry terminal. Construction for Amrun will extend the Weipa mine life by approximately 40 years, depending on production rates.
The fire pump included a Sulzer Pump coupled to a Welling and Crossley 6102T2 diesel engine via a Centax torsional coupling and Spicer driveshaft. The package was mounted on a carbon steel base plate, complete with FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) grating and canopy.
