Located in Western Australia, Jimblebar is an iron ore mine, and is an 85:15 joint venture between BHP and Mitsui and ITOCHU. The project consisted of a major expansion to increase production at the plant.
The significant size of the Jimblebar Rapid Growth Project 6 (RGP6) resulted in the design being delivered in 3 packages;
DBM Vircon’s scope included the shop detailing and 3D BIM of structural steelwork and mechanical plate work, isometrics for piping and vendor modelling of all concrete, procured items, electrical and cable trays over the 3 packages. The scope included in excess of 20,000t of steelwork across 350 models, 1,800 steelwork phases and over 75,000 detail drawings. DBM Vircon were subsequently engaged to undertake the Wheelara Project extension (Package 4) consisting of an additional primary crushing and overland conveying inflow circuit.
