JLE was contracted by IMG to carry out the electrical and instrumentation installation works for a new dewatering plant at the Vale Nickel Mine in New Caledonia. The project site is a 1.5 hour drive south of Noumea in a remote part of New Caledonia. The installation works were completed in a very compressed timeframe due to the urgent requirement to have the dewatering plant commissioned. JLE delivered this project using a mix of people from NZ and New Caledonia. Project management, supervision, and key electrical resources were supplied from JLE which were complemented by electricians from partner companies in Noumea. JLE completed the 10,000 man hour project without any LTI’s.
