Delivery of 150 tons Dumpers at KNS, a first in the history of New Caledonia

June 11, 2015, Koniambo Nickel received 3 dumpers of 150-tons loading capacity, relieved by the Port Teams with the assistance of Komatsu’s Technical Staff. It was an outstanding and impressive operation, taking into account the size of the parts to be unloaded from the ore carrier’s holds. As a result, Koniambo Nickel becomes the first New Caledonia’s Industrial Company to own these mining machinery. 18 operators including 6 females were trained for three months to drive these 150 tons machinery since their operation in mines. Increasing payloads up to 150 tonnes is thus one way Koniambo Nickel implements its Sustainable Development Policy.
