UPC has been the sole protective coating contractor at Rio Tinto’s DSL operation in Port Hedland since 2008. Amongst other projects, UPC has successfully completed the remedial works for
B line Conveyor Belt and Screw Bowl project
C line Conveyor Belt and Screw Bowl project.
Both projects involved extensive work from elevated work platforms due to the height of the conveyor belts and screw bowls. These projects were time critical due to production schedules and the additional unscheduled structural repairs. UPC completed the both projects with no lost time injuries and under budget. Rio Tinto has awarded the next stage of the program to UPC whom will be commencing the work in early 2011.
