Moberly Frac Sand Development - Moberly-Intro

Moberly Frac Sand Processing Building

Heemskirk, a global mining corporation, decided to redevelop its Moberly site to produce and process higher-margin domestic frac sands, glass sands and other high-purity silica sands products used particularly by the coatings, recreational and landscaping industries; as well as the unconventional tight gas and shale gas industry.

Maple Reinders was responsible for construction of the new Frac Sand Processing Building, which comprised significant heavy equipment installation including conveyors, bucket elevators, mixers, dryers and dust collection systems. Additional scope of work included fit-up of new offices, workshops and dry facilities; new roads and fire lanes around the facility; new rail load-out operation complete with fall protection devices; new rail spur for the facility; site electrical; new site utilities including water for process, potable water, septic fields, and site drainage; and supply and installation of new back-up generators and propane tanks for process.

The Moberly Frac Sand plant has a flexible design to adapt to changes in product requirements and utilizes energy-efficient technology. Maple Reinders provided significant design input to promote timely completion and constructability.
