RCR wins crushing plant contract from Fortescue Metals Group


Mining services provider NRW Holdings announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, RCR Mining Technologies, has been awarded a $27.2 million contract for the design and construction of a primary crushing plant (PCP) at Fortescue Metals Group’s Cloudbreak mine.

NRW Holdings said the project, which follows the delivery of the previous Hopper 9 crushing facility at the mine in early 2020, will be delivered in partnership with Primero Group, who will provide engineering support and construction services.

CEO Jules Pemberton said the project will be complimentary and concurrent to the Solomon Hub conveyor and crushing plant that the company is currently delivering for Fortescue.

“I’m delighted that our Minerals Energy and Technology team of RCR Mining Technologies, DIAB and Primero are able to collaborate once again on another project for Fortescue and continue to innovate through smarter engineering solutions,” he concluded.
