Whitehaven Coal

"...proving the cost savings and efficiency the mine is already benefitting from the ChemMaster self bunded tanks."

Client Background

Whitehaven Coal is the emerging force in the Australian coal mining industry.

As the leading coal producer in NSW’s Gunnedah Basin, their vision is to be Australia’s leading independent coal company. Whitehaven Coal is mainly involved with exploration, project evaluation, project development and coal mining activities in the New South Wales’ Gunnedah Basin. The Group currently operates four open cut mines and they are delivering plans to double their production.

Client Requirement

Whitehaven Coal needed a storage solution for oils and coolants at their workshop. However due to the fact that the mine would be in construction phase for some years, they needed a solution that was Self Bunded and yet easily relocatable. Traditional concrete bunding does not allow for flexibility with location and is not able to be moved easily.

Solution Provided

Polymaster assisted Whitehaven Coal (via 3rd party contractor) by supplying 8 x 10,000L ChemMaster Self Bunded Tanks complete with cabinets. The cabinets included hose reel, integrated air-operated pump, flow meter, level control (mechanical and electrical) and dust proof vent. The tanks have already been moved onsite at least once from their original landing place, proving the cost savings and efficiency the mine is benefiting from the ChemMaster Self Bunded Tank.
