Rio Tinto pledges to use local suppliers in $70m project

Rio Tinto is to use predominately local suppliers in the construction of an A$70m upgrade to its bulk handling facilities at East Intercourse Island in the Port of Dampier, Western Australia.

The project aims to manufacture, install and commission three replacement stackers (large machines used to pile bulk material such as limestone, ores and cereals on to a stockpile) as well as other equipment. Rio Tinto Iron Ore chief executive Chris Salisbury said the work would help maintain the mining giant’s “portfolio of world-class assets” in Dampier.
