The Weir Group has won a £95 million order to provide aftermarket components and service to the Iron Bridge magnetite project in Western Australia. This follows the company’s record £100 million contract for original equipment for the project, which includes its Enduron High Pressure Grinding Rolls, that it won last year.
Both the aftermarket order and revenues will be recognised over the seven-year period of the agreement, which starts in 2022, in line with Iron Bridge’s initial production.
“This is another landmark order for Weir,” said Ricardo Garib, president of Weir Minerals. “Having helped design an energy- and water-efficient magnetite processing plant, we are delighted to provide operational support for Iron Bridge from 2022.”
Garib continued, “It is an excellent example of the value that Weir’s innovative engineering and close customer support can create for all our stakeholders and reflects the key role we have to play in making mining operations more sustainable and efficient.”
To support the project and future growth, Weir will build a new service centre in Port Hedland, Western Australia, thereby providing employment and training opportunities in the area, with a particular emphasis on supporting greater Aboriginal representation in the broader mining workforce.
