The Weir Group PLC, a provider of mining equipment and services, has been awarded a £100m order to provide energy saving solutions to the Iron Bridge Magnetite Project, a joint venture between Fortescue Metals Group Ltd subsidiary FMG Magnetite Pty Ltd and Formosa Steel IB Pty Ltd. The Project is located 145km south of Port Hedland in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The order, which includes a range of Weir crushing and pump equipment, aims to reduce energy consumption and wet tailings waste by more than 30% compared to traditional mining technologies.

The Iron Bridge project is a US$2.6bn investment in premium magnetite iron ore reserves with annual production, when the mine is fully operational, of 22 million wet tpa. Delivery of the first ore is expected in 2022.
