Located 560km north of Adelaide, Olympic Dam contains one of the world’s largest deposits of copper, gold, silver and uranium. The site’s owner and operator, BHP, manages a fully integrated processing facility from ore to metal; ore mined underground is transported by an automated rail system to crushing, storage and hoisting facilities.
BHP have committed over $48m to an upgrade of the Olympic Dam Airport, comprising airside works and landside works incorporating a new terminal building, baggage handling facilities and departure lounge.
The mechanical services contractor, Remote Air Services, provided air conditioning and ventilation systems for the new check-in hall, departure lounge, amenities and baggage areas. Dewick & Associates worked with Remote Air Services to prepare project handover documentation including a Commissioning Plan outlining the framework for commissioning of the systems installed to bring them into service, and a Mechanical Services O&M Manual for the end user, including a complete description of the systems installed and equipment schedules, in addition to authority certificates and as installed drawings. The documents were provided in line with the BHP format requirements.
