Brockman 4 Operational Technology Systems

Rio Tinto Iron Ore

Pilbara Region, Western Australia, Australia

Brockman 4 was proclaimed as a “Mine of the Future” and as such there was a strong focus on new technologies being deployed in this greenfield project. As part of the Technology systems design, Calibre conducted a review of all current and practical technologies, ultimately including only technologies that would provide strong business benefit.

The technologies that were included were in the areas of remote operations readiness (preceding the remote operations centre), abnormal situation management (ASM), as well as a high level of Ethernet based production networks, all of which were industry leading at the time.

Calibre was responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction management (EPCM) and commissioning of all of the production critical technology systems related to this project.
