LDD Start Work in Panama Mine Terminal
We're back in Panama! LDD is pleased to announce that we've successfully mobilised our equipment for our works alongside leading Panamanian contractor Intercoastal Marine Inc (IMI). This project is for an export jetty for the Mina de Cobre mine development. We're also delighted that this represents our first 'working together' project with Acteon sister company, Core Grouting Services.
Earlier in the year we secured our maiden contract with IMI to provide a fully integrated drilling and grouting service for the installation of 28+ no. piles. The marine works are being executed for an export terminal as part of the huge mine development at Punta Rincon, Panama.
This is our second project in Panama, following success on the Taboguilla Terminal Expansion Project, and this also represents our first ‘working together’ project with sister company Core Grouting. This will be the first of many!
As fully integrated sister companies, our ability to provide a drilling and grouting service under a single contract and combine it with our first-class safety record, really impressed our client.
LDD’s supply includes an LD408 drill rig from our extensive fleet, including custom adaptations for drilling in high-strength igneous rock and one of the latest high-strength grout mixing units available to the market. The high specification grout blend required for the design could not be mixed with standard grout mixing plant. The equipment supplied by Core met with this specification and was delivered to Panama to meet our Client’s programme.
We are delighted to be working with IMI on such a major development, and we hope the success of the project will lead to further opportunities to work together in the future.
Expected availability of this spread is in Q1 next year, so if you have a project that might benefit from our equipment availability in the region, or you simply require an installation involving drilling and grouting, then please feel free to get in touch. We’d be very pleased to talk through your project requirements.
