Building a mine: From planning and power to machines and support
Providing end-to-end solutions for greenfield mine development
When Stornoway’s Renard diamond mine began its production ramp-up in July 2016, it was ahead of schedule and under budget. Stornoway gives credit to the many partnerships that were essential to this achievement — from the local First Nations Cree community and government entities, to local construction crews, and to Caterpillar and Cat dealer Hewitt Equipment Ltd. Hewitt worked with Stornoway long before equipment ever arrived — optimizing the mine set-up, developing a power solution for the remote site, finding the right mix of trucks and loaders, and ensuring logistics and support are in place to ensure the availability of its Cat equipment.
