Gekko Systems is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first stage of the Hope Bay Project.

The major milestone encompasses the design, manufacture and shipping of Gekko’s Python process plant with the capacity to treat 1,000 tonnes of mill feed per day, and a concentrate treatment plant capable of treating up to 300,000 ounces per annum.

Gekko was required to meet strict deadlines for the equipment to arrive at Roberts Bay Port by August 2016 as sea access is only possible each summer for up to ten weeks. Consequently, the plant had to be designed, built and shipped on schedule to meet the tight delivery window.

“This is a fantastic milestone for Gekko’s contribution to the TMAC project. The entire Gekko team worked together to design, procure, construct and dispatch the processing plant with the support of our flexible and responsive supply chain partners. The positive and interactive relationship with the TMAC team has paved the way for a successful installation and commissioning phase of the project currently underway.” said Tony Stone, Gekko’s Group Manager of Operations.

The success of this first stage of the project was made possible through Gekko’s modular and containerised approach to plant design. This allowed for construction, assembly and factory commissioning in Ballarat prior to the shipment using 200 containers.

As outside temperatures regularly drop to minus 50 degrees Celsius, the plant and equipment needed to be designed to withstand the harsh environmental conditions and Canadian Standards to ensure the high-performance expectations are achieved.

The plant will be installed inside a purpose-built structure approximately 150m long by 50m wide with commissioning of the plant expected in mid-December 2016. The low-height plant design allowed the building height to be lowered by up to 10m, which further reduced construction, heating and operating costs and improved maintenance access.

The plant will reach its maximum capacity of 2,000 tonnes per day in late 2017, when the second Python is estimated to be commissioned and fully operative.
