Site Location: Solomon Tailings Pipeline Stage 1 & 2
Duration: Dec 2017 – Ongoing
FMG works across multiple Iron Ore Mine sites in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. Inoteq was contracted late 2017 to commence the dewatering requirements across FMG’s Chichester, Solomon and late Eliwana sites.
As part of this contract, Inoteq was contracted to complete the first stage of the Tails Facility pipeline, being the installation and commissioning of a 450mm steel Victaulic pipeline, HDPE decant return pipeline, discharge spigot and valve assemblies complete with burst discs, actuated valves, pressure transmitters, flow meters and solar panel assemblies. Onsite fabrication was also completed for the tie into the existing plant and pump infrastructure. The project was completed and commissioned on time with zero incidents.
Following the successful installation of the stage 1 Tailings pipeline, Inoteq was again contracted to install the Supplementary Tail line at the same facility. This included the installation of 450mm HDPE pipeline, 4 x booster pump stations including pumps, automated valving, switchboards and generator installations, offtakes to decant return and nearby turkeys nests.
