Anvil Hill Coal Mine

image

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.

Highlands Source Project

image

The Highlands Source project was initiated during a time of severe drought and is a major initiative designed to secure water supply to Goulburn, in the southern highlands of New South Wales. It involved linking Goulburn to Wingecarribee Reservoir, which is part of the Sydney Catchment Authority’s network of dams. The project involved tight timeframes and funding constraints which drove efficient and innovative approaches.

An extensive community and stakeholder engagement program was implemented as part of the project, which involved construction of an 80 km pipeline through 145 individual properties.
