MST/Nixon Construction Comms is Vital for Roy Hill Project

Roy Hill map final

Last month MST released a case study on the Roy Hill Railroad project, where MST’s Nixon technology played a vital role in providing temporary construction communications.

In the Pilbara region of Western Australia, Roy Hill, an iron ore mine, which will be using a single line heavy haul railway to transport processed iron ore from the mine to a dedicated stockyard 344 kilometres away.

The railway infrastructure required multiple teams to build the rail line through tough and unforgiving terrain, absent from cellular coverage or long-range radio communications infrastructure.

To advance high levels of safety, increase the productivity and morale of personnel at these sites, a robust voice communications systems was essential. Roy Hill chose MST to provide a reliable and easy-to-deploy communications solution.

MST was one of the first contractors on site to set up the communications essential for the operation of the project, helping to keep the workers safe and online in remote locations. With set-up crews on the ground, MST stepped in to provide easily transportable, high performance solar powered site communication systems and workers could quickly pack up and reinstall as the project continued down the line, helping Roy Hill to build it quickly and efficiently.
