Marandoo SWFSF Pipeline and Electrical Upgrade

The Marandoo Southern Waste Fines Storage Facility (SWFSF) is part of Rio Tinto’s Marandoo mine operations, located 45 kilometres east of Tom Price in the Pilbara, Western Australia. An open pit operation, the mine produces 15 million tonnes of iron ore per annum.
