Rock Salt Crushing and Screening Plant - Lansing, N.Y.
ABC National Excellence Award Recipient, 1995
Ibberson was awarded the responsibility of fabrication and erection of the Cargill rock salt crushing and screening plant. The building of the plant took place 2,300 feet underground in a warm, dark, dry hole carved out of salt deposits in the earth.
To complete the project, Ibberson’s crew erected 350 tons of steel and installed fifteen belt conveyors, one screw conveyor and a drag conveyor that, combined, extend more than a mile in length. Each of the 25 crew members underwent a mandatory 40 hours of Mine Safety and Health Administration training before per- forming work on the project. The final result was a world-class facility that boosts productivity and is expected to last a minimum of four decades.
The screening plant is located in the depths of the Cayuga Salt Mine in Lansing, New York, replacing one that had succumbed to technology advancements and two decades of use.
