Dismantling of 350 Aluminum Pots in Baie-Comeau, QC

The synergy of the Démex-Centrem Group made it possible to meet the very tight schedule of this large-scale project. The passion for logical and efficient solutions stimulated the development of minute-by-minute methodologies and sequences to ensure continuous progress without interfering with ongoing plant operations. Several trailers were adapted to our specifications and metal cuts optimized to maximize transport loads. Once all the metal was decontaminated, it was were recycled and upgraded at Centrem in Alma. We adapted some of our equipment dismantle the pots.
