Australian crane hire, heavy haulage, and special projects provider Tutt-Bryant Heavy Lift & Shift is engaged in lifting structural steel at the South Flank iron ore deposit in Western Australia.

Tutt-Bryant is using its 127 tonne capacity Link-Belt TCC-1400 telescopic crawler crane to build mining infrastructure for BHP, an Anglo-Australian multinational mining, metals and petroleum company headquartered in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

The iron ore deposit is 16 miles long and the TCC-1400 will be on site for around 12 months helping construct the mining infrastructure. The mining project is valued at $2.9 billion USD ($3.8 billion AUD) and scheduled for running operation by 2021.

The TCC-1400 was shipped to Sydney from Singapore through its parent company Tat Hong, along with two additional 90 tonne TCC-1100 telescopic crawler cranes. The TCC-1100 was then transferred from Sydney to Perth and then on to the site.

“The availability of the machine (TCC-1400) was a factor,” said Malcom Smith, national operations manager for Tutt-Bryant. “It was a stock machine and we had a requirement for a specific machine with that sort of boom length [12.92 - 59.5 metres] for BHP at South Flank.”
