Redundant Equipment Removal

​Demolition of the redundant hot briquetted iron plant​

Project Overview

​In May 2013, Delta Group was contracted by BHP Billiton Iron Ore to conduct the demolition of the redundant Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) plant on Finucane Island, Port Hedland, Western Australia.

The selected assets to be demolished under this contract included 1.3km of conveyor modules of which 354m were greater than 10m above ground level, 3 x Transfer Station, 2 x Feed Ramps, an Iron Ore Stacker, and a Water Tower which was located in Project Environmental and Aboriginal Heritage Review (PEAHR) area and is the last remaining structure of the old Finucane Town.
There were a number of risks associated with BHP Port Operations in relation to these works. TS703, TS720 and CV725 were located near the Out Go Rail Line on Finucane Island, TS722 had a live conveyor running adjacent to it and CV703 ran alongside the main slurry lines for Port Operation.
With these risks and the project execution risks identified Delta produced all required methodologies, DRAWS, engineering, drawings and worked with BHP to establish an understand of demolition works and achieve the results they were looking for.
The Finucane Island Project was completed in February 2014 with no injury or disturbance to Port Operations.​
