Clough awarded the Construction of the Ore Handling Plant (OHP) for the BHP South Flank Project

Currently celebrating its 100th year of operation, Engineering and Construction Company, Clough, is pleased to announce the award of the construction of the Ore Handling Plant (OHP) for the BHP South Flank Project.

Clough CEO and Managing Director, Peter Bennett said “We are pleased to continue to grow our relationship with BHP on the South Flank project, and indeed, within the Mining sector in WA. The delivery of this project will create 300 new roles and will be self-performed by Clough’s Western Australia based team, with the scope including structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation for the Ore Handling Plant (OHP) structures, including the interconnecting conveyors and transfer stations.” Bennett said. “Clough is a proudly Western Australian engineering and construction company with a proven history of delivering world-class projects and critical infrastructure both in Australia and overseas.”

The South Flank deposit is located approximately 130 km by road north-west of the town of Newman, and approximately 8 km to the south of the Company’s existing Mining Area C operation. The South Flank project will fully replace production from the 80Mtpa (100 per cent basis) Yandi mine which is reaching the end of its economic life.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. Lest we forget. When the First World War started on 28 July 1914, John Oswald Clough (Jack) was quick to enlist in the army. He was sent to camp at Blackboy Hill outside Midland Junction and trained on No.4 gun. At the end of October, he embarked at Fremantle and left for Egypt. After some months training at Mena Camp outside Cairo, he joined thousands of other ANZACs in the landing at Gallipoli on April 25 and remained with his battery at the Dardanelles for the next eight months until the allies were withdrawn on December 19, 1915. Like many others, Jack was then sent to the Western Front with the 1st Australian Division fighting in Pozières, Ypres and Flers. He was injured for a third time in the Battle of the Somme in 1917 and awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. While recovering, he was commissioned and ended up a Lieutenant before returning to the front for most of 1918, when gunshot wounds to his arm and knee invalided him home. On his return, Jack formed a building company called Clough Brothers with his brother Bill in 1919.
