HEAVY EQUIPMENT WASH BAY

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

The Finning facility at Mildred Lake required a new wash bay that could accommodate the scale of the Caterpillar 797 mining trucks. The design includes cannon-style wash guns mounted on the catwalk to remove frozen tar sand from the buckets. In addition, special attention was given to the roll-up overhead doors that need to withstand damage from the frozen tar. A settling pit and ramp is included on the side for the removal of mud and waste by wide-bucket skid-steer loader.
