SADA Group Contract Operation

SADA’s experience and expertise as a long-term contract washery operator has led to our successfully designing and/or contract operating several coal preparation plants for major Australian coal companies.

A SADA-driven contract operation offers many benefits to our clients.

SADA’s extensive coal preparation capabilities cover all aspects of coal processing including screening, crushing, dry and wet processing, dense media processing and dewatering.

We provide a lower cost per tonne alternative which improves yield and lowers operating costs, with our experienced management team delivering a contract operation which focuses on maximising recoverable yield and TPH throughput with minimal downtime.

A SADA contract operation also ensures adherence to the highest safety standards. Because the operation and management of a safe workplace is paramount to SADA Group, we implement a carefully tailored safety management system to suit each  individual operation.
