REMA TIP TOP to splice things up at Rio Tinto’s West Angelas

REMA TIP TOP Australia has been selected by Monadelphous to provide splicing capabilities across more than 10 km of new overland conveyor and modifications to three existing plant conveyors at Rio Tinto’s West Angelas Deposits C & D project, in the Pilbara of Western Australia.

Benedikt Schneider, CEO of REMA TIP TOP Asia Pacific, said he was “thrilled to be able to bolster our partnership with Monadelphous and leverage our proven relationship in delivering unmatched capabilities for Australia’s largest mining houses”.

He added: “We pride ourselves on our ability to provide best-in-class services.”

Schneider concluded: “As Australia’s only Registered Training Organisation with the ability to train both our own people and also to develop skilled workers from across the materials processing industry, we take our role of being an expert in conveyor installation, repair and servicing very seriously.”

With a total of 39 splices across five conveyors, with run of mine and overland conveyors connecting the site with Rio Tinto’s existing West Angelas process plant and stockyard, the A$1.2 million ($770,000) scope of works is set to commence this quarter.
