Division: Infrastructure
Sector: Mining
Client: Rio Tinto
Location: Pilbara, Western Australia
Contract Value: AU $40 Million
Timeline: Jul 2012 – May 2014

The Yandi Sustaining project is located in the central Pilbara region of Western Australia, approximately 90km northwest of Newman. The Yandi Sustaining project is to maintain production from, and expand the Yandi Mine by extending the operation of the mine into new ore deposits. The expansion has created a requirement to remove existing power-line infrastructure on-site.

SCEE Infrastructure was responsible for the design and construction of replicating and upgrading the 33kV overhead distribution power-line to various mine facilities (over 30kms) from the Yandi 220kV Switchyard. In addition, SCEE Infrastructure was responsible for the design and installation of new line sections across an operating mine.
