Rio Tinto’s current fleet of lighting towers consists of more than 650 units provided by Allight, some of which have been in the field for more than 20 years.
Under a relatively tight time frame, Rio Tinto’s team required an additional 56 lighting plants for their operations at Hope Downs 1 and Hope Downs 4, both within the harsh Pilbara environment.
To manufacture the units at our Landsdale facility and deliver the towers before the end of the financial year, all key stakeholders within the Allight project team met with Rio Tinto to discuss the timeline and best practices. Each relevant Allight business unit had a direct line of communication to Rio Tinto to allow for a seamless transition of critical information and project deliverables. We also dedicated full time product line expeditors to make this opportunity a success story.
As a result of a combined team effort, the 56 lighting towers were delivered on time, as promised. We look forward to continuing our business relationship with Rio Tinto.
