In 2012 Queensland Nickel and Vale went to tender for 1,000 specialised bulk containers for nickel concentrate.
After the tender closed ISG was awarded the project. The ISG engineering team designed a container that was to be shipped to the mine site in New Caledonia, loaded with cargo then shipped back to Townsville in Australia.
Once the containers were delivered to Townsville they were taken to the QNI processing plant and unloaded. The cycle was then repeated back to New Caladenia.
Managing Director of QNI Kim Price stated he was very happy with the service provided by the ISG team and all containers where delivered well before the scheduled tender timeframe.
