Parsons Brinckerhoff wins place on £6.7bn Australia mine project

Client Roy Hill has this week made consultant Parsons Brinckerhoff the project management consultant (PMC) on its AU$10bn (£6.7bn) iron mine in the Pilbara region of Australia.

The project will involve the construction of a 344km heavy haul railway to link the mine and port, ore handling facilities, an ore stockyard and two berths at Port Hedland. The new mine is expected to produce 55Mt of iron ore per annum.

“This project spearheads the development of a new generation of integrated iron ore mining, rail, and port operations,” said Parsons Brinckerhoff global mining managing director Mark Dimmock.

“This requires a team with an embedded depth of knowledge across the development cycle.”

“Their knowledge and experience means we have the ability to counter project challenges as they arise with effective design and implementation solutions.”

The project is undergoing due diligence and approval to proceed is intended for mid-year. The first shipment of ore is scheduled for September 2015.
