Fenner Dunlop has secured the contract to manufacture and deliver the Overland Conveyor Belt package to BHP’s South Flank project in Western Australia. Fenner Dunlop’s ability to manufacture locally in Western Australia and its proximity to South Flank is a vital component of the partnership. Fenner Dunlop will provide approximately 50 km of a low rolling-resistance conveyor belt representing the largest order for Fenner Dunlop’s Kwinana plant in almost ten years.
The large racetrack reels will be manufactured by JAF, part of the Fenner Dunlop Australia group of companies, and will maximise reel length, reduce splicing on site and installation time. “We’re looking forward to working with BHP on this new project, improving their conveyor performance and supporting them in the expansion of their operations,” said Scott Ryan, Fenner Dunlop’s Project Manager. The Overland Conveyor Belt project is expected to be completed in December this year.
