Hunter Valley Shovel Relocation
Location: Hunter Valley (NSW) - Australia
Equipment used: 54 axle lines SPMT's; hydraulic jacks
March 2014

Sarens Australia performed the relocation of a 1,250t shovel at one of the mine sites in Hunter Valley, New South Wales. The shovel had been  transported over a bridge and slopes up to 8%! Load distribution on the  bridge and creation of suffi cient traction on the slopes were the key factors  that made this transportation successful. A creative engineered setup of  hydraulic jacks was used to distribute the load of the shovel on our trailers.  This project is another major reference for Sarens' mining operations in  Australia!
