Rio Tinto’s 330 Mt/a expansion project in the Pilbara included $2.4Bn to upgrade Cape Lambert’s port and infrastructure. Ferro-Clean was involved in the first Cape Lambert upgrade in 2007, and due to the quality of work produced, was a preferred supplier in the Port B upgrade phase, running from July 2012 to October 2014.
Ferro-Clean’s part in the mammoth project included;
Shutdown deadlines for the installation were achieved by utilizing Ferro-Clean’s three high-capacity workshop facilities in Perth. The efficient processing meant the work stayed onshore and made rigid quality inspection simple.
Ferro-Clean’s proven safety record, (which still stands to date) demonstrates the behaviors and skills of qualified personnel, ensuring no delays for costly shutdown time.
As part of Ferro-Clean’s continuous improvement policy, job tracking systems were specifically upgraded for the project, in view of attaining ISO 9001 Certification.
Ferro-Clean’s contribution resulted in Rio Tinto being able to re-open the facilities on time, to the quality standard, and within budget – strengthening Ferro-Clean’s decades-long relationship with Rio Tinto and its suppliers.
Ferro-Clean is assured the project was completed beyond the expectations of the client. Multiple testimonials can be seen on the case study page at www.ferro-clean.com .
