RECENT / CURRENT CLIENT LIST: Gibson County Coal White Oak Resources River View Coal Knight Hawk Coal Company Arch Coal – Viper Mine Prairie State Energy – Lively Grove Mine Patriot Coal Company Peabody Energy Southeast Missouri Stone Lafarge Joppa Cement Plant Century Aluminum Sebree Streamlining the design, layout and analysis process is our goal. This increases time for free and innovative thinking, resulting in a quality engineered product, and valuable well-designed solutions for our client. STADD® is our primary structural analysis software. Solidworks® 2013 is the primary engineering software employed by FMC. The 3D structural and mechanical elements generated for layout and interference checking can now be leveraged for analysis. FMC also utilizes other CAD packages, such as AutoCad, to ensure flexible capability in meeting our individual client needs. As certified users of Overland Conveyor’s Belt Analyst software, our engineering staff produces efficient and reliable conveyor system designs. This system allows input of vertical and/or horizontal profiles with up to 360 flights, making it a valuable aid in horizontal-curve and vertical-curve analysis. Applied DEM’s Discrete Element Modeling software is also incorporated to evaluate chute design. This unique software allows us to simulate belt transfer chute performance through virtual prototyping of particle-flow systems. Engineering design and construction of raw coal conveyance and storage from the mine slope mouth through to power plant feed conveyor. Completed at an approximate cost of $41 million, this was a component of the PSGC power plant project, currently the largest privately funded construction project in North America. Complete design/build of the raw coal and clean coal handling systems including conveyors, storage systems, and reclaim systems. Design and construction of clean coal conveyance and storage from the prep plant through to our new truck load-out system. Engineering design and construction of slope drive/raw coal sizer structure, transfer conveyor and 500 ton surge bin. Redesign and construction of existing conveyor support structure. Design and construction – work in progress – layout of emulsion building and compressed air piping design. Construction of new refuse system including existing plant modification, new refuse conveyor, 500 t refuse bin, and design/build of fly ash handling system. Construction – work in progress – Administration Building, Mine Fan, Rock Dust Tank. Design/Build of Preparation Plant Conveyor Systems for Plant Feed, Clean Coal and Refuse. Construction of the Preparation Plant also by Fricke Management & Construction, Inc. Design and construction of the surface coal handling equipment including the slope tower, concrete stack tubes and screen/breaker building. This $20 Million project is currently under construction and will be completed by the end of 2013.
