Inclusions and Exclusions

This table provides a list of contract inclusions under the "Inclusions and Exclusions" section for a bulk material handling project.

Inclusions and Exclusions
3D point cloud scan
Acceleration and Coasting time analysis.
Belt Tension Analysis.
Analysis of Discrete Element Modelling material flow results.
Additional Site Visits
Advisement on stakeholders (National and International).
Fluid Coupling oil fill quantities.
Any additional design conditions other than the specified design upgrade.
Chute failure mode effect analysis.
Belt Loading Analysis.
Audit on current system status.
Any modifications to the location of the head pulley on any of the chute designs. In the event that modification to the location of the head pulley mounting location is required, a change note will be issued to include the additional work .
Any health and safety associated documentation required for project completion.
Additional design validations for new running conditions.
Geotechnical investigation.
Class 1 estimate of costs.
Long term advisement of the chute replacement and process flow diagram improvements.
Literature review.
Medicals and inductions for the site visits.
Mechanical and Thermal rating analysis of gear units.
Review of environmental issues or discussion with authorities.
Project schedule.
Head and Tail end Transition distances analysis.
Hold back specifications.
Electrical feed to min-substations, transformers, motor control stations etc. as the current location of power supply is currently not known.
Discrete Element Modelling calibration tests. Note: the commencement of this work is dependent on supplying a sample of the ROM production to the nominated laboratory to the specification given and reliable test results received in due time.
Control, instrumentation and electrical requirements
P&ID's and electrical drawings
Motor selection and reserve power.
Report on current expected life of equipment.
Testwork on the residue material.
Structural and condition Inspection walk through of conveyor system.
Run of Conveyor Idler analysis on Carry and return strands.
Review of SCADA information.
Manufacturing, installation or construction.
Pulley analysis which includes shell diameters, hub and bearing shaft sizes and such deflection limits.
Planning of installation.
Phased project scope with itemized deliverables.
Vertical curve (Concave/Convex) and Horizontal curve analysis. For concave curves belt lift out is determined. Convex curves will access belt flex stability.
Structural analysis of the existing support structure.
Sizing and specification of all relevant hydraulic equipment and fittings.
Engineering oversight on findings by the DEM service provider.
Discrete Element Modelling simulation.
Convex curve Idler analysis on carry and return strands.
Layout drawings for chute installation and modifications.
On-Site Installation
On-site Construction
Preliminary installation timeline for each chute modification.
PR approval of structural calculations.
Specification of Belt class and Selection.
Site visit with operations team detailing findings and recommended modifications.
Details on the all contractor requirements for site work.
Assistance with fabrication quality assurance.
Assistance with procurement of equipment and approvals of vendor data.
Assistance with commissioning and installation support
Facilitation of HAZOP studies, in particular safety analyses, recommendations for modifications to the existing support structure, installation procedure, ease of maintenance and accessibility for inspection and maintenance.
Provide input into the Bill of quantities ( prepared by site appointed Quantity Surveyor)
Take-up system analysis (Required tension at load cell or counterweight mass. Take-up movement is also determined in the tower and carriage depending on rope weaving arrangement).
Work instruction for the manufacturing of the chute steelwork.
Civil designs do not account for the sourcing of material, particularly commercial sources or borrow pits. Investigations into borrow pit material suitability or environmental licencing are not part of this scope.
Ground handling equipment (TLB) to be provided by the client for Geotechnical Investigations.
