Topic: Implementing a Lubrication Program, Cameco Cigar Lake Operation
Cigar Lake is Cameco’s newest uranium mine located in northern Saskatchewan. During construction of the mine, Cameco determined that a lubrication program was needed to ensure that critical assets were properly maintained. The mine offered challenges in that there was not just one plant or area to setup. There was a fleet of equipment both underground and on the surface with mobile and stationary assets. In addition there is diesel power generation and a fleet of freeze compressors installed. Each area presents its own challenges and opportunities when setting up a program.
Learn why a lubrication program is important, and see the improvements made to the program management, storage and inventory management, cleanliness, product standardization and sampling. There are several aspects of a lubrication program that need to work together to ensure reliability. This webcast will share Cigar Lake’s journey from ground zero towards a world class lubrication program, one that was featured in Machinery Lubrication’s 2016 Lube Room Challenge edition and more recently at MainTrain 2017 in Saskatoon. Gain insights into implementing an effective lubrication program into your organization through this webcast.
