The journey starts! Valin Resources successfully delivered the first batch of Fortescue pipeline modules
On Oct. 4, 2022, Hunan Valin Resources Trading Co., Ltd. (''Valin Resources'') started shipment of the steel structure pipeline modules at Xinminzhou Port in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province, and would head to Port Hedland at Pilbara region, Western Australia. This is another big order successfully delivered after Strategic Cooperation Framework Agreement for Fabrication Products was signed between Fortescue and Hunan Steel on the 3rd China International Import Expo. It marked a new milestone in strengthening strategic cooperation.
Mr. Li Liming, Group Manager Corporate Development China of Fortescue, Mr. Tan Zhenxin, Executive Director, and Mr. Qiu Wu, General Manager of Hunan Valin Resources Trading Co., Ltd, and representatives of other related partners attended the celebration ceremony.
Mr. Tan Zhenxin, Executive Director of Hunan Valin resources Trading Co., Ltd made the remarks at the ceremony.
Fortescue's contract awarded to Valin Resources includes the Pipes for the Concentrate Handling Facility and the Tailings line Pipe work for the pipeline at the OPF, covering over 10 different types of pipes and spool liners. Besides, the 6 pipe modules are up to 8.4 meters wide and 26 meters long, and about 3000 cubic meters of total volume. Of which 3D HDPE pipes with large bending diameter need to be purchased from overseas suppliers. Due to great varieties and complicated processes, and raw materials needed are sourced from a number of manufacturers, great challenges were brought to project management.

It took us 4 months to fabricate and deliver the pipe modules under DDU terms. Valin Resources provided door-to-door delivery services. During this period, we encountered a variety of challenges in project technical exchange and raw materials procurement because of COVID-19 control and hot weather, as well as the difficulties of large-scale steel structure transportation and lifting at wharf. Eventually, Valin Resources made efforts to coordinate and overcome the difficulties with all parties to ensure on-time delivery.

Even mountains and seas cannot distance people with common aspirations.In 2009, Hunan Steel invested in Fortescue which created a new chapter of cooperation. Over the past decade, the steady development of urbanization in China has injected vitality into the steel industry. Hunan Steel has gradually become one of the most important customers of Fortescue in China. The synergy between downstream Valin Resources steel products and upstream Fortescue iron ore has further strengthened the long-established strategic partnership between Hunan Steel and Fortescue. This will actively promote cooperation in a wide range of fields and improve cooperation level to achieve mutual benefit and win-win results.
