Laing O'Rourke appointed to Roy Hill
Laing O'Rourke will go to work on the largest single-pit mining operation in Australia.
Roy Hill is a $10 billion iron ore project, 70 percent owned by Gina Rinehart’s Hancock Prospecting, which will stretch 34 kilometres long and 17 kilometres wide in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
Laing O’Rourke has just been awarded Package 3 by Roy Hill’s EPC contractor Samsung C&T – a contract involving the construction of structural steel and associated mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation works for the massive mine.
It also incorporates building the ore stockyard facilities to support the intermodal and export operations, comprising car dumpers, interconnection conveyors and transfer stations.
In a separate announcement, Laing O'Rourke has been awarded a third package of works by Rio Tinto at its Cape Lambert Port B iron ore operations - also in the Pilbara.
Roy Hill and Cape Lambert in the mining and materials sector, alongside the oil and gas sector works at Chevron's Gorgon and Wheatstone projects, are among some of the key major infrastructure works Laing O'Rourke's Australia Hub will deliver in Western Australia throughout 2014.
