The Georgiou Group has secured the non-process infrastructure for Rio Tinto’s Western Turner Syncline Phase 2 Stage 2 project, located in the Pilbara, Western Australia.

The project involves the expansion and development of iron ore deposits to sustain the existing Greater Tom Price production.

Located around 32 kilometres west of Tom Price, the project will include the extension of the heavy mobile equipment workshop, construction of a new light mobile equipment workshop and tyre change facility, as well as expansion of ancillary buildings and installation of water infrastructure.

Georgiou CEO Rob Monaci said the team was looking forward to building on its expertise in non-process infrastructure.

“Over the past five years, Georgiou has really solidified their position in the non-process infrastructure space, having successfully delivered a number of NPI projects for Tianqi Lithium and, more recently, Rio Tinto Iron Ore,” he said.

“This new project enables us to continue building on our relationship with Rio Tinto as we take on more complex, technically challenging projects in WA’s north.”

Construction has commenced with an expected completion of October 2021.
