This year, Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing had the distinction of being selected by the Saskatchewan Industrial and Mine Suppliers Association for a case study on one of our pieces of mining equipment, the Mobile Reel Handler. This study was also done in conjunction with the Government of Saskatchewan. Only a handful of companies within Saskatchewan were selected and Fortis had the distinction of being one of those companies. To be considered, your company must have engineered and manufactured a unique and new piece of equipment for the mining or industrial industry in Saskatchewan. The Mobile Reel Handler was put on a long list of possible case studies. Eventually after some research and comparisons by SIMSA, it was decided that the Mobile Reel Handler was indeed an innovative piece of mining equipment and well worth a case study!
Recently SIMSA published the case study and sent out to SIMSA members, government officials and will be handed out at varying SIMSA events.
You can read the case study on SIMSA's website https://simsa.ca/member/wp-content/uploads/SIMSA_Fortis_Casestudy_LR.pdf or see the attached pdf below
The Mobile Reel Handler is currently being used at the Potash Corp. Rocanvile West Expansion product.
Peruse our website to see additional examples of Fortis engineering, CNC machining, welding and fabrication.
In addition to engineering and manufacturing, the Fortis Mining division is a well respected mining contractor and mining subcontractor in Canada. The Fortis Mining division has successfully completed a number of difficult projects in local potash mines that our competition was unwilling to tackle. Fortis has worked for the major mine companies, including Potash Corp, Agrium, BHP Billiton and Cameco.
