Project Description:

Fortescue’s Pilbara Transmission Project aims to integrate the company’s iron ore mining and port operations in the Pilbara into one common 220kV network comprising 325km of 220kV Transmission Line and 4 Substations to date. This will enable Fortescue’s existing Solomon Mine power station to supply power to the $2.6 billion Iron Bridge Magnetite Project, and connect to
other assets.

Survey Scope:

ST Spatial had one fulltime survey crew on site covering the entire 325km site.  We were
responsible for the survey setout for all 4 substations and all associated power infrastructure. This included the setout placement of all concrete footings, pedestals, steelwork and substation components as well as as-constructed surveys of all infrastructure on site.
