Three 1200-tonne beneficiation modules have arrived on site and another three are due this month for construction of the processing facility at Rio Tinto’s $2.6 billion Amrun bauxite project.
Civmec is contracted to carry out fabrication, site civil works, electrical and instrumentation, precast concrete and structural mechanical piping works for the entire project.
The modules were assembled on precast footings, slabs which assisted with stability for shipping by providing a low centre of gravity. These modules were fully assembled, complete with structural steel, piping, mechanical and electrical fit out up to pre-commissioning.
The completed modules were transported to the wharf at the AMC, shipped via heavy lift ship to site, unloaded at the MOF wharf and transported 40 kilometres to their final location via SPMT’s.
