Located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, the drilling platforms were developed using a stand-alone concrete gravity based structure (GBS). Totally made of high-strength concrete, the concrete had to be poured with a slip form system. A modularized construction was needed to facilitate the relocation of the twin batch plants to the barge to allow the oil platform to be completed offshore.
BMH provided two modular concrete batch plants used to produce the concrete for the construction of the GBS. BMH Systems supplied a twin central mix batch plant mounted on a barge, with two 5,4 yd³ twin shaft mixers, 935 tons of aggregate storage and 1, 800 tons of cement storage. This turnkey project also included an automation system capable of batching in the harsh environment of the ocean with very strict tolerances and, had to be able to withstand the worst possible storms.
