BHP Mining Area C TLMCS

In 2003 Meridian installed a bin weight monitoring system at Mining Area C (MAC). The bin straddles the rail track and is used to load wagons. In 2010 some of the electronic hardware was upgraded to modernise the system. The original 2003 load cells on the columns have never been replaced and they continue to operate well today. In early...

Griffin Coal Ewington Mine Site Train Loading Improvement System

Meridian Engineers’ involvement with Griffin Coal commenced in 1998. Today Meridian have one truck and three train loading improvement systems installed at their Ewington load-out facility in Collie. For years these systems have allowed Griffin Coal to load trains to target while virtually eliminating overloads. In late 2006, Meridian installed their new trackweigh in-motion weighbridge...

BMA Train Loading Improvement System

The first Meridian TLI system installed in Queensland was at the BMA Norwich Park mine in 2004. This installation was initially sponsored by Queensland Rail to demonstrate new loading technologies in Queensland. The project demonstrated the relative ease with in which Meridian technology could be applied to existing installations. BMA purchased the system after a...

Integra Coal Train Loading Improvement System

Integra Coal’s Singleton mine site train loadout facility was upgraded from a volumetric loading system to a mass based train loading system. Integra Coal now load trains within +/-0.25% of target and 90% of wagons have less than one tonne variation. The system was fully commissioned in February 2010. The Meridian TLI system now allows...
