Roy Hill engaged BG&E Resources to prepare a Feasibility Study for the Stanley Point 3 Expansion Project, to increase the current export capacity from 60-64 Mtpa to 102 Mtpa.
Located in Western Australia’s Pilbara Region, Stanley Point 3 is part of the Port of Hedland, the largest bulk commodities port in the world.
This Feasibility Study incorporated sufficient engineering definition (15%) to support a Class 4 cost estimate for a base case integrated stockyard and a split yard solution. Intelligent 3D models were developed for each of the options with metadata for steel and concrete quantities.
Progressive delivery combined with 3DEGlobal’s Indian Design Modelling Centre was effectively utilised to facilitate rapid development of the design documentation in an aggressive 16-week schedule to achieve the Financial Investment Decision milestone.
In addition to this project, we completed an Energy & Power Feasibility Study to determine the overall power and energy demand for the new infrastructure, and the Concept Engineering Study to identify optimal solutions for magnetite handling within the Ridley Development Envelope at Port Hedland, and into the Stanley Point 3 shiploading circuit.
Engineering design and approvals are now well advanced for the Stanley Point 3 expansion, which will support the rising demand in exports in the coming years for the global energy transition.
