Previous projects include:

Water Management Facility Pumping System

Kozar Engineering Inc. designed a new pumping station to supply a mill with process water utilizing water from the water management facility and pumping it through the existing pipeline to the mill complex. The pumping station included the specification of new deep well pumps capable of delivering 1,100 m3/hr and associated mechanical equipment, complete automated control system, 4160V electrical feed and distribution and building design including concrete and steel.

Underground Water Recycling System

Kozar Engineering provided detailed design services for a water recycle project to reduce the amount of fresh water being consumed underground. The overall project has reduced the amount of fresh water consumed by 30% resulting in significant energy savings. The project consisted of clean water reservoir, filtration system, UV system and mud separation. Kozar Engineering provided mechanical, electrical and controls drawings and specifications. The system was designed to be interlocked with existing dewatering pumps and would recycle water underground only when specific water quality requirements are satisfied.

Underground Fuel Delivery System

KEI completed the detail design for an underground fuel system at the 657mL Fuel Bay. The design included: piping design of existing surface fuel storage facility, piping design and day tank design, piping design of the 315-657 collar location and piping distribution at 700mL. The design was complete in comp
