Rio Tinto Nammuldi Stage 1
Knifegate Valves, Butterfly Valves, Miscellaneous
The world’s second largest mining corporation, Rio Tinto, engaged Mineral Resources company CSI to deliver a US$2.2 billion processing plant, capable of crushing, wet screening and beneficiating 25M wet tonnes of ore annually. Under a tight delivery schedule, with fluctuating valve requirements, Flocontrol delivered the complete valves package, including over 1200 butterfly, knifegate, ball, check and control valves safely and efficiently to meet the project’s target delivery.
To achieve this, we developed custom project delivery processes, innovative valve tagging and logistics operations to enhance agile delivery and facilitate ease of receipt and processing by the client. Flocontrol was further engaged 18 months later to supply valves for the Nammuldi Stage 2 expansion and has since been a regular and reliable supplier to Rio Tinto for many of their valve requirements, including the more recent Mesa A and Mesa J projects.
Through our founders’ mining history and experience, we understand the procurement pain points in the industry and continually develop our practices and procedures to mitigate these issues for our clients.
