On the 17thSeptember 2010, the First Ore On Ship (FOOS) was loaded onto the Bergen Max at Utah Point, ahead of its schedule loading date for shipment to China.

EC&M’s significant role and contribution in reaching the FOOS milestone ahead of schedule can be accredited to their success in completing the Electrical and Instrumentation works required to power the ship loader and conveyors well ahead of time.

Atlas Managing Director David Flanagan quoted  ‘On behalf of the Atlas team, I would like to thank Andre Bush and his Port Hedland Port Authority team, PinC, Goodline/ECM joint venture, Ertech and Brierty for their tremendous work in binging this project to fruition.”
