FMG Port Operations
Lucy Nash chats with Steve Allard, Fortescue's Head of Port about the construction of the port, the current output of iron ore, the environmental impact and the plans for future development.
SkillsOne recently visited tradies who work in the mining industry in the Pilbarra, in Western Australia, run by the Fortescue Metals Group.
Fortescue focusses on iron ore.
Fortescue's port, rail and mine project commenced construction in February 2006 with the turning of the first sod at the Company's port site at Anderson Point in Port Hedland. Just two years later, the open-access rail infrastructure is complete, the Fortescue Herb Elliott Port is operational and the mining operations at the Company's first minesite, known as Cloudbreak, are well underway.
