REMA TIP TOP adds more conveyor belting to Monadelphous South Flank contract

REMA TIP TOP Australia says it has been contracted by Monadelphous to install a further 24 km of conveyor belting and provide expert splicing services for the “outflows infrastructure” at BHP’s South Flank iron ore project, in the Pilbara of Western Australia.

It follows a contract to install more than 50 km of conveyor belting at South Flank that was awarded last year. Monadelphous, meanwhile, was awarded a major infrasture package for the mine build in February 2019.

The new contract is the third in a series of agreements that sees REMA TIP TOP supporting Monadelphous to deliver key infrastructure projects for the region’s largest miners.

This includes an agreement 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.

REMA TIP TOP Industry Australia CEO, Michel Ciepelinski, said: “This new contract is a testament to Monadelphous’ faith in our ability to deliver. We have demonstrated that we have both the skills and capacity to provide expert services in full conveyor solutions and this new agreement extends our successful relationship.

“Now, more than ever before, we are committed to helping Australian industry keep moving and its projects like this that are critical in ensuring our economy and the nation maintains momentum.”

The new contract will see the delivery of belt installation works across 13 conveyors, which tie into the existing BHP Mining Area C stock yard.

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.

REMA TIP TOP Australia builds up infrastructure capabilities

REMA TIP TOP Australia says it is extending its existing range of material processing, wear protection and surface protection capabilities with the addition of civil, structural steel, mechanical and piping entity Drew Project Services.

The new agreement bolsters REMA TIP TOP’s experience in the installation and maintenance of conveyor systems for Australia’s leading industrial companies, adding a new and unmatched capability to provide broader infrastructure services, it said.

Steve Hipwell, REMA TIP TOP’s National Projects and Tenders Manager, said: “We’ve long been recognised as a leading provider of products and services that help keep Australian industry on the move. From conveyor belt design, componentry and specialist repair services, we’ve been able to hone our skills over decades to become expert in the installation, maintenance and the replacement of conveyor belts globally.”

This new agreement with Drew Project Services extends the company’s capability to provide turnkey solutions for customers in civil and mechanical disciplines across both maintenance and project requirements, Hipwell explained. “These services include detailed design and fabrication, detailed earthworks, form work and steel fixing, concreting, project management and supervision, heavy construction, site installation and commissioning, specialised welding and cutting, crane operation and rigging, painting and blasting services,” he said.

“We’ve long spoken about our desire to provide total industrial solutions that are aligned to our customers’ operating challenges and the establishment of this new infrastructure capability is evidence of this commitment.”

The new partnership is in effect from January 1, 2020.
