ROY HILL PACKAGE 3 TRANSFORMER BLAST WALLS
The Roy Hill Project is a 55 million tonne per annum (Mtpa) iron ore mining, rail and port project being developed in West Australia's Pilbara region.
The Project will consist of:
- Mining operation for 55Mtpa hematite iron ore;
- Crushing, screening and processing lump and fines products;
- Stockpiling and train loading;
- A 344km standard gauge, single line, dedicated heavy-haul railway from the mine site to Port Hedland; and
- Port facility located at Port Hedland for receiving, stockpiling, screening.
Lead contractor Samsung C&T awarded the Package 3 contract valued at $420 million to BGC Contracting. This package involved all the civil earthworks, concrete works and general infrastructure of the port component of the project, located in Port Hedland. As a leading Western Australian based precaster with a strong working relationship with BGC, we collaborated from design stage until delivery of the precast walls, successfully completing 9 compounds (approximately 100 panels) in a little over two and half months.
Initially designed as insitu walls, Dallcon helped eliminate the immense task of constructing these compounds with this method, by providing a more efficient and stronger option - precast tilt panels. Project requirements included;
- 300mm thick panels (steel finish moulds fabricated in-house)
- 50MPa concrete project specified mix
- Various cast-in connections (grout tubes and ferrules)
- Galvanised connection brackets
- Stringent company and project quality standards
All product was manufactured transported to site using our own fleet of equipment.
