BHP Billiton Iron Ore - Laser Partially Dumped Ore Car System

Cardno BEC has supplied and installed a fifth Laser Ore Car Detection System for BHP Billiton at Finucane Island, near Port Hedland in Western Australia.
The system, designed and engineered by Cardno BEC, utilises laser scanners to inspect iron ore cars and ensure they are empty as they exit the car dumper.
 
Cars with remaining iron ore have the potential to derail, causing damage and costly delays.
 
The Finucane Island installation further illustrates the success of the system and BHP Billiton’s commitment to Cardno BEC.
