UON has successfully manufactured and commissioned two Diesel Sump Pumps and one Diesel Transfer Pump as part of a major Rio Tinto dewatering project located North-West of Newman, WA. The project involved the in-house design and fabrication of three diesel pump skids in conjunction with headworks trailers and associated steel pipework, achieving construction completion earlier this year.
The Diesel Sump Pumps and Transfer Pump were designed and built to client specification including consideration for operating and maintenance personnel safety. Works included all equipment and services necessary to manufacture, surface treat, paint, inspect, test, transport and complete operationally, with all functional and performance testing completed at UON’s in-house pump test facility.
The pumps will support additional ore mining by the client from new deposits at the site. For more information on UON’s pump design & manufacture capability, please visit the UON website.
