Centennial Coal engaged GHD to complete the conceptual design
for all surface facilities required to support Anvil Hill, one of
the largest open cut coalmines to be developed in the Hunter Valley
region of New South Wales.
The design scope included a new rail loop, road systems,
administration building, workshops, fuelling systems, truck and
light vehicle washes, site drainage, power supply and reticulation.
The topography of the mine site, located on a flood plain and
bordered by an escarpment and plateau above, presented a number of
restraints to the design team. Among these was the issue of limited
locations for dam storage and integrating the process plant into
the water drainage system. Overhead high voltage power lines, which
run through the centre of the site, were also a consideration when
preparing the designs.
