Client Introduction

Nyrstar Hobart operates a zinc smelter based in Hobart, Tasmania. They contribute a lot to the economy of Tasmania by employing more than 600 people. Their plant has been operating for more than 100 years, and it occupies a large land in the Heart of beautiful Hobart.

The Problem

Nyrstarwent to the market to find a solution to their dust emission issue on their roadways and surrounding plant areas. They enquired many global suppliers regarding their problem. ASC was also asked to visit their site and suggest an appropriate solution with the best possible dust suppression technology after evaluating their operations.

The Solution

ASC recommended their ASC Dulevo 6000 sweeper. As this sweeper is designed to be as rust-resistant as possible with an upgraded conveyor and hopper system.

Moreover, they were given the option of leveling up their machine with extra water jets as well as a simplified cockpit to ensure it was simple to drive and navigate. The unit was fitted with a super fine Gore Dust filter ensuring PM 5 dust compliance.

As the Tasmania government had strict Covid 19 restrictions in place, the machine was pre-delivered by Hitachi Launceston and later installed by ASC’s service representative Bob Collins. Bob Collins remained on site for the 2-days training to teach the Nyrstar operators how to use and maintain the machine.

He also ran a service school to teach theNyrstar’s approved mechanics how to maintain, service, and repair the unit based on OEM manufacturer’s specifications.

The Result

Nyrstar makes a public claim to strive to deliver a safe workplace and minimize its impact on the surrounding environment. The latest ASC investment proved to be in line with their ideology!
