PORTFOLIO Aluminium  & Steel ______________________________________________________________________________________  



 Aluminium: Ship unloading facility

The Alouette Aluminum Project in Sept Iles, Quebec, was the beneficiary of the expertise STRUDES engineers bring with them to every project as they assisted Alesa Alusuisse in the structural design of this unique ship unloading and handling system capable of retrieval at a rate of 1000 tph for alumina and 500 tph for coke materials.



 Steel: Wolverine Tubes - New Casting Line

Technological improvements in the metallurgical industry led  our client, Wolverine Tubes, to install four new casting lines in their factory in Montreal, Quebec. As the most was to be made of the existing facilities, and with the complexity
of working in a very confined area with limited access for heavy equipment, a great deal of ingenuity and expertise was demanded of our engineering staff to execute the project on time and on budget.



 Steel: Sidbec Dosco now AcelorMittal          

Increased demand for steel products lead to
a decision to reopen Sidbec Dosco's Furnace
No. 2, which was forced to close ten years ago.
However, the economic circumstances which
led to the closure made improvements in
the material handling equipment necessary.
As time was of the essence, STRUDES' experience
in retrofits was put to the test. The existing structures
and equipment were surveyed, evaluated,
and improvements made in the allotted time.


 Steel: Lafarge Canada's St. Constant Plant, Quebec

Lafarge Canada's St. Constant Plant in Quebec
required the opening of a new quarryas resources
at their existing site were being exhausted.
Strudes engineers were able to satisfy their
customer's needs by completing the project
on schedule, within budget, and without
interrupting plant operations.
