“The purpose of the visit was to provide the Trade Commissioner a firsthand experience with the day-to-day operations and processes of a company uniquely suited to the fabrication and repair needs of Mongolia’s burgeoning mining industry,” Gemini’s VP of Business & Product Development Mike Walchuk said.

After touring the machine works, rotating equipment repair center and heavy equipment repair facility the Trade Commissioner attended several operations, planning meetings as well as Gemini’s monthly HSE meeting. Mr. Erdenebayar’s role is to assist Canadian companies by providing advice on marketing strategies and up-to-date market and sector information to help smooth the path for Canadian companies looking to do business in Mongolia.

Chris Neitsch, who recently returned from Mongolia himself said, “Mongolia holds an abundance of mineral resources, a thriving mining sector, comparable climate and geography as well as similar service and supply requirements as Alberta’s major oilsands players. There are excellent JV opportunities for companies that have the right capabilities, experience and ambition to move in that direction.”

Gemini operates two 45,000 sq. ft. facilities specializing in large OD and production machining, rotating and heavy equipment repair, structural fabrication and pressure piping with joint venture partnerships in Columbia, Poland, China, and Mongolia.

Bucyrus 495 BI Dipper – Returning to Mine by Heavy Haul

Project Complete!

Gemini’s Welding, Fabrication & Heavy Equipment Repair Facility saw another Dipper leave for a Ft. McMurray mine where it will be mounted on a Bucyrus 495 BI Electric Rope Shovel. Refurbishment on this type of Heavy Mine Equipment is literally no small feat. Undoubtedly, this must have turned some heads on the Anthony Henday Drive (a major freeway that encircles Edmonton) as well as HWY 63.

Undoubtedly, this must have turned some heads on the Anthony Henday Drive…

Two mobile cranes with a combined 230 Ton heavy lift capacity were used

The Heavy Equipment Repair Team utilized a great deal of technical and trades resources to complete this Dipper project including: certified inspectors, NDE, crack repair, expendable wear component replacement, machining, millwrighting, welding & fabrication, overlay, build-up, critical alignment & assembly, and more.

Transporting this behemoth more than 450 km safely definitely takes some specialized equipment and a team of oversize load professionals. Two heavy lift mobile cranes with a combined 230 Ton lift capacity were used to maneuver the almost 168000 lb Dipper onto a hammock style conventional trailer.

As shown below, the coordinated effort of Gemini Machine Works and our Heavy Haul partners to get this massive component on the road and to its destination – professionally and safely.

WALTERDALE BRIDGE

Casing Head Adapters
What is being called one of Edmonton’s most complex infrastructure projects to date, the Walterdale Bridge, has been a sight to behold as we’ve watched it progress from theory to construction. Despite the delays that garnered plenty of attention with some understandably disappointed Edmontonians watching from the side lines not able to enjoy this new marvel of engineering for just a little bit longer.

Here at Gemini Machine, we feel incredibly honored that we have been able to contribute to this soon to be iconic feat of architectural design and structural engineering. As some readers may already know, Gemini was given the privilege of providing a sizable portion of structural steel fabrication and machining services. Thanks to our pre-existing scalable capacities we were able to successfully provide top quality and quick turnaround for all services needed by the bridge team.

Here around the shop, the staff are waiting for the day we can drive across that red carpet river crossing; and the right to annoy loved ones in the car by reminding them that our team got to play a vital role in the bridges development!
