FAST (for BHP Billiton)
Henderson, WA

Civmec was awarded the contract for the supply and fabrication of components and associated logistics for the Nelson Point upgrade, as part of the Port Hedland Inner Harbour Project. 

Supporting the upgrade and expansion of BHP's processing, stockpiling and shiploading facilities at Nelson Point to facilitate increased handling capacity, our scope included the supply and fabrication of structural steel, conveyers, platework, shuttles and transfer stations.

The shop modularisation and assembly of the shuttles, transfer stations and various conveyer systems were undertaken at our waterfront facility at Henderson, enabling BHP to achieve first ore three months ahead of schedule.
