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.

At the time of construction, the Cape Lambert Jetty was the longest jetty in the world, and one of the highest. The jetty measured in at 2.3km in length and was built 18m in height above sea level because of the prevalence of cyclones in the region. It was built using A-frame steel piles, which many remarked looked like matchsticks. For the high standard of work on the Cape Lambert Marine Facility, the Harbourworks Clough Joint Venture was awarded the prestigious Australian Federation of Construction Contractors Construction Achievement Award in 1973.
