Howden For Roxgold Gold

Burkino Faso


Cooling solution to facilitate the production of gold at the ROXGOLD mine in Burkina Faso.


In consultation with Howdens Engineers, it was concluded that our FM range of cooling towers would be best suited for the condenser circuit of the surface refrigeration plant, being built for the gold mine. As the mine is exposed to the harsh African sun, it made sense to use our FM cooling towers as the  cooling towers are produced with non-corroding materials to ensure that there is no degradation of the tower, over time.  This range of towers is also cost effective, easily installed and maintained.

Our FM 248 cooling towers were built in 2 compact halves for easy transportation in shipping containers. The containers were then shipped to the port of Tema in Ghana, and then transported via road to site.  These robust towers will be assembled on site under our supervision… simple, with minimum site time.

Alongside the cooling tower order, IWC will also be supplying a 4 cell, bulk air cooler, specifically designed by for this application.
