Project Details


EPCM: Rio Tinto has appointed WorleyParsons Services Pty Ltd as the projects Engineering, Procurement, Construction Manager (EPCM). All major agreements will be with Rio Tinto directly.  

 

Project Details  

 

The development of a new iron ore mine and associated rail infrastructure extending from the Koodaideri mine to Rio Tinto’s existing rail network. The project will include the following components;  

 

• A stockyard with associated stackers and reclaimer; 

• Train load-out facility; 

• A 220kV transmission line connecting to the Yandicoogina transmission line; 

• A 220/33kV switchyard; 

• Site control systems and communications, fire detection and security; 

• A bore field for water supply; 

• Non-process infrastructure (administration buildings, workshops, warehouse, explosive storage facility, vehicle wash and fuelling facilities); 

• A new airport; 

• Bridges;

•Access roads; 

• Accommodation village and temporary construction camps; 

• 170km of new railway including rail sidings and junctions; 

• Level crossings; 

• Rail maintenance track; radio base stations and fibre optic cabling; 

• Signalling, communications and asset protection system upgrades; and 

• Construction facilities such as laydown areas, haul roads, borrow pits, site offices and construction and potable water sources.   

 

It is a Rio Tinto requirement that standards utilised are either Australian or internationally recognised equivalents, unless otherwise justified due to specific technological, commercial, intellectual property or similar requirements. All requests for proposal (RFP), tender and contract document references will stipulate any standards requirements. In certain circumstances, materials specifications in RTPs may be met by using either Australian or internationally recognised standards. Otherwise it is the project’s intent that standards specified in RTPs do not seek to exclude Australian business from participating in Tier 1 supply opportunities.  

 

Delivery Schedule:  Subject to approval, construction of the Project will take approximately three years and provide employment for over 1,600 personnel (at peak).

Advanced Data Analytics - Plant24 Jan 1914 Feb 1914 Feb 19
The Project has a focus on the implementation of advanced technologies. Technology will be incorporated into the facility to enable whole-of-life efficiency gains in operations and maintenance. Two areas under investigation are the application of Advanced Analytics, to improve quality and reliability, and the development of an offline Digital Twin (also referred to as an Operations Simulator).

The scope of work is for the design, development, integration, testing and deployment of the following:

Advanced Analytics
Plant-related algorithms that:
. predict failures and undue wear of critical equipment in the plant, such as the Primary Crusher, Conveyors, Apron and Belt Feeders, Stackers and the Reclaimer;
. monitor plant performance across all circuits and provide real-time, contextual set points;
. dynamically determine the most effective way of stacking stockpiles;
. forecast train loading times; and
. optimise dust monitoring and management.
Digital Twin
A model that simulates plant operation using the same datasets and outcomes that support near-real time plant performance optimisation. Key characteristics include:
. 3D models contained in the Digital Asset.
. Simulation from the primary crusher to the train load out area.
. Ability to predict throughput of the plant based on a number of variables including historical and actual weather data.

The solution will leverage existing data and models to ensure that implementation costs for the Digital Twin are minimised.
Specific Scope Requirements:-
*Please refer to the SOW for further details.
