Coalview Centralia, part of Coalview Ltd – a leading American fully-integrated coal technology and fine coal recovery company providing technology and environmental solutions for mining property owners – has been awarded the SMART Association’s A-Team Safety Award.
SMART is a leading business association providing companies with the resources to manage and control risk in Washington State, US.
The award recognises the company’s achievement of having US$0.00 losses for the retroactive plan year for group members reporting more than US$100 000 annual labour and industries premium. Less than two percent of the members achieved this impressive milestone.
“Our Coalview Centralia plant is approaching its third year of operation with an injury-free safety record. The award is a fitting recognition for our employee’s focus on compliance with regulations and safe work practices,” stated Roger Fish, CEO of Coalview. “In addition, our Centralia plant has achieved high efficiency and availability that are significantly better than industry standard.”
“Coalview Centralia has an additional 10 years of project life,” said David Schwedel, Coalview’s Executive Director and Lead Investor. “The construction and operation of the project are part of the continuing reclamation of the Centralia Site. The project helps eliminate the volume of material in the impoundments, and mitigate environmental concerns.”
The Coalview Centralia plant represents a US$42 million investment. Upon completion of material processing, a large-scale environmental programme will continue allowing the post-mining land use to include upland forestry, lowland forest (wetland, riparian, fish and wildlife habitat), pastureland and industrial land.
