Gudai-Darri is situated on Banjima land, 110km northwest of Newman, WA, and includes construction of a new, autonomous iron ore mine with an additional 166km of rail infrastructure connecting Gudai-Darri to Rio Tinto’s existing rail network.
The Viking solution
Viking Industrial was engaged by Southern Cross Electrical Engineering (SCEE), as part of a multi-million dollar package awarded for Mine Plant Electrical and Instrumentation works.
A range of temporary generators were provided to support on-site construction along with three standby generators totalling 3500kVA. All of these generators were custom built to Rio Tinto specifications, for the purpose of supplying emergency backup power to the mine.
There are also opportunities for future upgrades.
