Rio Tinto’s Pilbara Iron-ore operations

Ashburton Crane Hire flipping a base frame for an electrical switch room. The switch room is destined for Rio Tinto’s iron-ore operations in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.


The Ashburton Crane Hire Pilbara operation used 2 x 100-tonne Liebherr all-terrain cranes and 2 x 25 tonne pick and carry Franna cranes.

8 staff including crane operators were involved in lift and planning. Only 6 hours to complete the lift. This Pilbara mining construction project in Western Australia was completed on-time and to budget!

Ashburton Crane Hire in the Pilbara and other remote regions of Western Australia have played an important part in the safe, economic development of the Pilbara and other regions of Western Australia.

As good practitioners of corporate social responsibilityAshburton Crane Hire hire have donated staff, mobile cranes and equipment to schools and other worthwhile causes in WA communities where their cranes operate. Next time you see an Ashburton crane on hire in the Pilbara, don't hesitate to phone their project manager to see if Ashburton Crane Hire can help with community development in the Pilbara.
