Our team was engaged to undertake the detailed design of the ROM 4 Crushing Station 5 Facility at the Roy Hill Iron Ore mine.
Located in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia, the ROM 4 Project is part of an expansion of the mine. The detailed design of the ROM 4 Crushing Station 5 Facility is an evolution of the ROM 3 Crushing Station which was designed by BG&E Resources in 2020. This latter facility is currently producing ore at capacities well over the design nameplate.
The ROM 4 Facility has an upgraded annual capacity of 34.1mtpa and has been designed to cater for larger haul trucks. Structurally, the design is based on similar integrated supporting structures to the ROM 3 Facility. However, it has been evolved to utilise modularised large ‘building blocks’ similar to the ship building industry.
The modules have been designed to achieve compressed fabrication and construction programmes with a substantial reduction achieved in on-site man hours.
