Rio Tinto and Sandvik Mining and Construction (separate contracts)
Henderson, WA and Weipa, QLD

Civmec was awarded two significant contracts for the development of a processing facility for Rio Tinto’s Amrun project. The project involved the construction of a bauxite mine and associated processing and port facilities on the Cape York Peninsula in North Queensland.

The contract awarded by Rio Tinto was for the construction of the process facility, including a bauxite beneficiation plant and associated water, electrical and lighting systems, and the supply of a combined total of 11,800 tonnes of Australian steel and precast concrete. The fabrication, precast manufacture and modular assembly was undertaken at our west coast facility in Henderson.

The second contract for Sandvik, completed in June 2018, included the supply, fabrication, surface treatment, mechanical and electrical install and modularisation of a stacker, reclaimer and shiploader for bauxite material handling. This included the fabrication of 2,200 tonnes of steel at our Henderson facility.
