Materials Handling Optimisation

Our team has ten decades of experience in solving bulk materials handling problems at various locations around the world. Involvement in different operations means if it’s: a conveyor system at a power station in South Africa; a bunkering belt in Ontario; a diversion system at an Australian port; or the doubling of belt speeds at a shipping plant in Indonesia, the MHO Infrastructure team has the right experience.

This experience includes project managing tight timeframe outages in brown field mine, port and power plant operations. We understand planning, scheduling and execution of works on time and with minimal disruption to operations, is business critical.

Charlie has lead and detailed greenfield and brownfield conveyor transfer system design at mines, ports and power stations on the east and west coast of Australia, in Canada, the USA, Indonesia, and Africa. In collaboration with an experienced design team, Charlie leads the conceptual and engineering design of MHO Infrastructure materials handling equipment.

Michael (Mick) Wordsworth

Mick has spent the last ten years providing consulting services to Australian ports, generally in owner’s team roles associated with major port expansions, or resolving materials handling issues. During this period, Mick has established a reputation for problem solving and meeting challenging construction targets. In 2007, Aspec Engineering and MHO jointly won the Australian Bulk Handling ‘Transport and Conveyor Technology Award’ for conveyor designs conceived by Mick. Between 2003 and 2005, after the sale of Tasman-Warajay, Mick worked in Chicago as Technical Manager for Flexco’s transfer system division. Mick was the co-founder and Managing Director of Tasman-Warajay for a period of ten years.

This senior group has extensive experience in bulk materials handling, project management, business management, and works closely with clients who trust us to respond to their requirements from the concept stage to completion.
