RCR was engaged to carry out Structural, Mechanical, Piping, Electrical & Instrumentation (SMP/E&I) works at the Roy Hill Iron Ore Project in Western Australia.

Under the direction of the EPC contractor (Samsung C&T), RCR was awarded multiple packages to support construction of the Ore Processing Facility and associated mine infrastructure.

The work, won on the back of our strong capability and contracting models developed for Fortescue’s Solomon Project, saw RCR constructing Ore Processing Facilities to high quality with a rigorous schedule.
RCR has also designed & supplied 35 apron/belt feeders to support operations at Roy Hill.
