MONDIUM CHOOSES FENNER DUNLOP FOR RIO TINTO’S WESTERN TURNER SYNCLINE PHASE 2 (WTS2) PROJECT IN THE PILBARA
Earlier this year, Rio Tinto awarded Mondium all engineering and design as well as procurement and construction works associated with the development of the process plant, overland conveyor and non-process infrastructure as part of the Western Turner Syncline Phase 2 (WTS2) project.
Fenner Dunlop will manufacture and supply 27,854 meters of steel cord belt and splice kits. The ability to manufacture locally in Western Australia and its proximity to the Pilbara is a vital component of the partnership.
The large racetrack reel will be manufactured by JAF, part of the Fenner Dunlop Australia group of companies, and will maximise reel length, reduce splicing on site and installation time.
The WTS2 project is expected to be completed in 2021.
