Weir, a global leader in mining technology, has officially opened its new Port Hedland Service Centre, strategically located in the heart of the Pilbara region, Western Australia. The Australian $28m (£15m) state-of-the-art facility strengthens Weir’s commitment to sustainable mining and is the flagship Enduron® high-pressure grinding rolls (HPGR) service centre in the region.

The new facility bolsters Weir’s national network of sixteen service centres and will support customers and their operations across the Pilbara region, including the Iron Bridge project which incorporates Weir transformational flow sheets – the world’s first dry comminution circuit without tumbling mills. Port Hedland serves as a critical hub for the mining and resources industry in Australia, driving economic growth and success for the important iron ore region.

The centre is equipped to service Weir’s broader range of products and technologies, provide engineering and maintenance support as well as critical parts storage for faster service times for customers.
