Steepbank Mines Project




1996 - 1999



Bantrel and its joint venture partners executed the EPCM role for this $165 MM project for Suncor. The project scope involved the design of both the mine ore handling system (dry side) and the slurry preparation/pipeline facility (wet side).

Through innovative ideas that the team proposed in equipment design, slurry storage and slurry preparation, a savings of approximately $40MM was realized. Suncor has complemented Bantrel and its partners for challenging the norms and paradigms in an effort to reduce cost and improve operability.
