A multinational engineering and construction company has won the contract for a metal operation in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.

thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions recently won the tender to build the nation’s first above ground jaw gyratory crusher at BHP’s Roy Hill Iron Ore Mine, 340km south of Port Hedland.

The contractor is tasked with designing a crusher that is serrated, has an enlarged feed opening, initial crushing zone, mantle, crushing chamber and low maintenance costs.

Jaw gyratory crushers are promised to handle much larger chunks of material than other gyratory crushers with the same mantle diameter and also have a higher crushing ratio, with less frequent clogging in the feed zone caused by bridging.

The contractor is hiring multiple mechanical fitters, boilermakers, riggers and trade assistants on a fly-in fly-out basis. Click here to apply.
