Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing has an abundance of experience in providing lift studies and engineered lift plans for the Potash Mines of Saskatchewan with recent experience including development of lowering procedures with Blair Hoists and Sinking Winches.
Fortis has also developed a test lifting criteria for components which confirms that each piece of equipment hangs as per design within the individual shaft parameters which virtually eliminates rigging issues during shaft lowering.
Fortis rigging plans utilize our underground experience to maximize the capabilities of the shaft profile and hoist lifting capabilities.
Reduction in disassembly of equipment to get underground has saved client time and money.
Comprehensive lowering methodologies typically include a site specific material hoisting basket design that is compatible with the sinking arrangement if a cage is not available. This allows 'light loads' on pallets, bundles, or crates to be safely transported underground with speed and consistency.
Fortis is an industry leader in the development of critical lift plans for the mining and construction industries.
