Port Hedland, WA
Roy Hill’s purpose built iron ore port facility at Port Hedland was constructed to receive, stockpile, screen and export 55Mtpa (wet) of direct shipped iron ore as lump and fines and was designed to accommodate future expansion.
The wharf was designed to accommodate an average vessel size of 206,000 tonnes, but is capable of handling larger 320,000 tonne cape size vessels.
Whittens delivered 44,000m3 of concrete FRP to support the construction of a car dumper facility, stacker reclaimer and conveyor structures at the port. Whittens also delivered the detailed earthworks for the project, and was responsible for the installation of precast concrete bridge structures.
