AMECO Group to deliver Portal Reclaimer for the largest Sulphur handling facility in Canada


AMECO Group partners with EPC Tri Innovations to deliver reclaimer in H1 2022 for the largest Sulphur handling facility in Canada

AMECO Group is proud to announce it will design and deliver a Portal Reclaimer for the largest Sulphur forming and handling facility in Canada. The deal was built upon a new partnership with Tri Innovations, a leading engineering firm based in Calgary, on behalf of one of the largest gas and oil operators in Canada.

The reclaimer from AMECO Group will have the following characteristics:

  • 2000 TPH rate reclaim rate to handle a 20,000-ton stockpile of prilled sulfur;
  • Hardened to withstand both extreme Northern Alberta temperatures and corrosive sulfur dust;
  • It comes with automation and remote-control features to help increase safety by minimizing on-site human intervention.

The reclaimer, along with the South Cheecham Sulphur Handling Facility (SCSHF), is scheduled to begin operations in the first half of 2022.

  • a tour of the actual machine in operation
  • a know-how sharing session with the team operating the machine
