The WA Mobile Projects Team is off to a strong start for 2021, mobilising their first mobile batch plant for the year for the Roy Hill Mine, Pilbara Region WA.

Last week, the team began mobilisation for the construction of the Debottlenecking and WHIMS Project. The Project will see the supply of more than 3,000m3 of concrete for upgrades to the iron ore miner’s wet, high intensity magnetic separator to capture ultrafine iron ore units that would otherwise end up as tailings waste.

Holcim is familiar with mobilising and supplying to the Roy Hill Mine, following completion of supply from a mobile batch plant on three previous projects. However, this time, we have partnered with Indigenous provider Amaroo Mining and Civil who completed their supply to us for the West Angelas project in 2020.

“First concrete was supplied to the project in early March and is an exciting start to the year for mobile projects,” said Cassie Andrews, Estimating and Mobilisation Manager.

“The team experienced a challenging start to the mobilisation with excessive rain forcing road closures during our scheduled start date. With our Mobile Plant Manager, Glenn Alexander, on the ground leading the plant set up and Paul Strachan coordinating the operational requirements, we’re looking forward to what we can achieve with Amaroo on what will be our fourth supply at Roy Hill.”
