The Holtfreters project office in Perth was established as a result of Tom’s joining Holtfreters and is undertaking engineering design and consulting work as well as smaller turnkey design and construct projects.
Tom has undertaken a wide variety of exciting projects in his career. Some involved full project design and management of mine infrastructure and treatment plants such as Bellevue and Higginsville in the WA goldfields. Others have been ground-breaking projects such as using mechanical ore sorters to separate nickel ore from gangue and the design of a high pressure pumping system to de-water the Golden Mile beneath the Kalgoorlie Super Pit in a single 700 metre vertical lift through a suspended pipe.
With most of his experience gained in close proximity to the operations of the eastern goldfields of WA, Tom has a ready appreciation of the potential impact of design philosophy on operating costs and life cycle costs.
