Western Turner Syncline


Structural engineering design, 3D FE modelling, shop detailing and site supervision


Western Turner Mine, WA


When a client requested assistance in remediating a primary crusher which was offline, Peritas moved quickly to solve the issue. Our software analysis model allowed for design checks to be completed expediently. Since remediation, the crusher has now been in operation for approximately 18 months and has shown no signs of distress.

Calibre Global were engaged by Rio Tinto as the EPCM provider on the Western Turner Iron Ore Mine in the Pilbara Region of WA. A Calibre design review highlighted potential structural issues. Peritas provided invaluable technical expertise, site support and practical know-how in developing a robust and practical solution. Calibre has no hesitation in recommending Peritas for any future projects.
