Open Cut Mine Design

ProMet Dadi Africa’s Open Cut Mine design team has a wealth of hands on experience in designing and operating open cut mines. Key personnel worked previously within foreign, and foreign joint venture companies, as well as the Surface Mine R&D Institute, with many obtaining recognition within the coal and metallurgical industry. Several of these designers have contributed to producing the surface mine Design Standards and Coal Industry Standards.

Underground Mine Design

The design team has successfully completed the design and implementation of more than 10 underground mines with capacities ranging from 4 million tonnes per annum to 15 million tonnes per annum.

Coal Process Plant (CPP) Design

Our team has successfully completed the design and implementation of more than 70 modern and efficient coal process plants, including many very large CPP’s such as the 31 million tonnes per annum Buertai plant, for the Shenhua Group and the 30 million tonnes per annum Pingshuodong Open Cut Mine CPP for the China Coal Energy Group.

Research and Development (Coal Processing)

The R&D Coal Processing design team focuses on scientific research into coal processing, and has intellectual property rights for clean coal technology, energy-saving slurry water technology, lignite quality improvement technology, semi-coking coal improvement technology and more.

We have successfully completed several innovative design projects including a tar oil shale refining project, a semi-coking coal project, a slurry water treatment project, a lignite coal chemical project and other lignite dry separation design projects.

Engineering Procurement & Construction (EPC) projects

We have an experienced EPC management team, specializing in large sized project engineering and procurement and construction of turn-key projects. Our achievements in the EPC field span the entire coal production area in China. The Group has completed more than 30 EPC projects and are renowned for their professional management of projects.
