Equipment Fatigue Analysis Project

Trigon Pacific Terminals Ltd. (formerly, Ridley Terminals Inc. (RTI)) operates a bulk materials handling terminal, located at Prince Rupert’s Ridley Island, for the export of metallurgical coal, thermal coal, petroleum coke. CWA was retained by RTI to conduct a fatigue analysis and service life prediction of their major materials handling equipment, including two shiploaders and three stacker-reclaimers. The objective of the study was to provide RTI with valuable information to facilitate their decision-making on asset management, including capital upgrades and equipment replacement considerations for the terminal’s long-term planning.

The results of this innovative study provided actionable information that will facilitate asset management decisions, including planned maintenance, capital upgrades, and equipment replacement considerations.

The project has been featured in the May-June issue of EGBC’s Innovation magazine.
