Australian iron ore mine drainage project

Australia is one of the world’s largest exporters of iron ore, and dewatering iron ore mines is a common challenge. Traditional drainage systems often face problems such as pipe aging, corrosion, and leakage, resulting in low drainage efficiency and environmental pollution. Therefore, finding an efficient and reliable drainage solution is crucial for the continued development of iron ore mines.


The use of HDPE pipes avoids water accumulation, overflow and blockage, and successfully solves the drainage problem of Australian iron ore plants.

  2. Location Australia
  3. Time 2019
  4. Scope Mainly used for the transportation of wastewater and slurry in mining areas, supply and delivery of 10,000 meters of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pressure pipes.

Iron ore plants need to treat a large amount of water, including wastewater discharge, muddy water discharge, rainfall drainage, etc. The role of drainage pipes is to quickly and efficiently direct these flows from their source to a designated discharge point or treatment facility. The project built smooth drainage pipelines, which reduced these potential safety risks through timely drainage and ensured the safety of employees and equipment.

This project was constructed in 2019. Over the past few years, it has greatly improved the production conditions of the local iron ore plant. By using HDPE pressure pipes, the project achieved an efficient and reliable drainage system. Treating wastewater and discharging it in compliance with regulations reduces the negative impact on the environment and achieves sustainable development of the economy, environment, and society.

There are many reasons why HDPE pressure pipes were selected for the pipeline in this project, including:

  • It operates smoothly and can meet the drainage needs of large flows.
  • Lightweight and easy to install, reducing labor and time costs.
  • HDPE material is environmentally friendly, recyclable and has low carbon emissions.
  • High density, good anti-seepage effect.
