The Bisha Mine project is located about 150km west of Asmara in Eritrea, East Africa. The area is rich in base and precious metals such as gold, silver, copper and zinc.
Bisha is the first mine of its kind in Eritrea, with milling, crushing and processing facilities, as well as road and port infrastructure and room for further expansion. Production at the open-pit mine started in 2011.
As part of recent expansions, Bisha Mining Share Company sought a solution for a new Heavy Vehicle Maintenance Facility. It needed to be easily transportable to a remote site and a time-efficient solution, while remaining compliant and functional.
DomeShelter Australia provided two Shelters, both 18m wide – one 24.4m long, the other 12.2m long. The Shelters are interconnected with a shared middle container. They are also mounted on double-stacked containers, with Super-Rise roof structures, for ample height clearance for all large mining machinery including CAT dump trucks.
The Shelters were designed, manufactured, and transported to site from Western Australia to Eritrea in 12 weeks. Installation of DomeShelter™ Structures is simple and easy, with all parts involved neatly packaged within a sea container for efficient delivery.
