Mining in a remove and harsh environment, Rio Tinto needed a company they could rely on to get the job done no matter the site complications, so they called Levanta and we delivered.
Based on our successful completion of a previous project, Rio Tinto required a solution to lift a wide range of heavy and light vehicles in a remote and harsh environment in the Pilbara Iron Ore mining region of Western Australia. The site is subject to high concentrations of red Iron Ore dust, high winds, cyclones and extreme temperatures.
Levanta supplied an OMER KAR350-10 35 ton 10 metre Knuckle Lift 3 years ago to RTIO it has performed without any faults to date, and has only required standard annual certification checks. This hoist is used daily to lift prime movers, trucks, buses, various items of plant and some light vehicles.
Rio Tinto received a high availability, safe lifting solution that to this day still delivers, even in the extremely harsh environment that they have to work in.
