To support future mining operations Fortescue commissioned the design and construction of a 3,500tph crushing facility at their Cloudbreak mine site.

Primero supported RCR Mining Technologies in delivering the detailed design (by way of ECI) and construction of the semi-relocatable Hopper 9 crushing plant in 2020.


Primero completed the discrete design, construction and commissioning of a semi-relocatable 3,500tph primary crushing plant (PCP) at Fortescue’s Cloudbreak mine site in partnership with RCR Mining Technologies. The Hopper 9 crushing plant was commissioned to deliver primary crushed ore onto a new OLC returning material to the ore processing facility at Cloudbreak.

Primero was responsible for all aspects of discrete design and construction of the new PCP including all civil works, mechanical, structural, electrical, instrumentation, control system, and commissioning works as well as integration of all aspects of the PCP with Conveyor CV006.
