K3 HEADFRAME INSTALLATION – ESTERHAZY, SK
In March of 2013, TESC Contracting mobilized to Saskatchewan’s Esterhazy K3 mine site where it worked on one of the world’s tallest mining headframes, which now stands at 374 feet.
Primarily structural in nature, the project consisted of the installation of structural steelwork for crane support, Mezzanine, Crash, Arrester and Koepe sub-foundation floor levels, as well as for the Koepe House Penthouse. Civil works included the installation of the Koepe Penthouse Composite Roof, various floor levels and the concrete columns between Blair Hoist Level (150 ft) and Arrester Level (202 ft). Electrical works included the relocation of Aircraft warning lights, installation of lighting for Mosaic logos, as well as the supply and installation of Lightning Protection for the Service Shaft Headframe Penthouse.
