Dig deeper with our mining equipment forecasts

As ore mines ramp up and come on stream, the total number of active surface machines (including trucks, excavators, shovels, loaders, graders and dozers) is forecast to rise from 141,470 in 2020 to 167,367 by 2025. This will be a CAGR of 3.4% from 2020 to 2025. The largest contributor to this growth is expected to be trucks, particularly smaller-sized trucks with shorter lifespans, used extensively in parts of Asia Pacific. Underground mining equipment is similarly expected to see a CAGR of 2.3% in this same time frame, with the number of mining trucks and loaders/LHDs in active underground mines expected to rise to 19,853 by 2025. GlobalData’s extensive mine-site research and equipment models have been used to build a complete view of mobile mining equipment populations globally for trucks, loaders, graders, dozers, excavators and shovels.

The project will include the development of earthworks infrastructure and initial mining pre-strip, as well as mobilisation and the establishment of the mining site, stripping of topsoil and subsoil, and drilling and blast operations.

NRW will also be responsible for the construction of haul roads, access roads and in-pit facilities.

NRW CEO Jules Pemberton said: “This contract award highlights NRW’s strong reputation and capability across mining and construction projects. NRW looks forward to continuing our relationship with Rio Tinto and supporting their iron ore operations in the Pilbara.”

The company will also carry out works related to drainage construction, a rom pad and skyway.

The project will start in November and is expected to run for 78 weeks.  It will require 150 personnel on the site.

In May, NRW secured a contract worth more than A$137m ($94m) from Rio Tinto for the Koodaideri Rail Formation South Earthworks.

The project involved the construction of approximately 73km of new rail embankment, a mine access road and associated road works along the Koodaideri rail alignment. Site works started this month.

In January, the company secured a contract worth approximately $65m from Rio Tinto to complete bulk earthworks at the Koodaideri project.
